Considering this is one of my favourite films of all time and gives me fond memories of watching it with my family, this review may be slightly biased.
This film is amazing, it has everything, comedy, romance, suspense, emotion, and golf (providing you like golf).
It's like an improved and quality version of happy Gilmore, although this was released many many years sooner.
If you've never seen this film then definitely give it a watch. Unless you hate golf, but even then it's not so much about golf as the story and the people behind the golfers, overcoming adversity and beating your demons. Also shows that winning isn't everything and there's more to life than money.

Enjoy!!

One of my favourite films of all time, Tin Cup tells the story of a washed-up, audaciously talented golf professional. "But it's a story about golf" I hear you cry - yes, but as someone who subscribes to H.S.Scrivener's famous quotation that paraphrases as 'Golf - a good walk spoiled' that's just the frame of this deliciously tongue in cheek comedy.

Kevin Costner plays the role of a lifetime as Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy, a man reduced to scraping a living at a down-at-heel driving range and staring at life through the bottom of a bottle. The mercurial McAvoy spends his downtime getting drunk with friends, principally Romeo beautifully played by Cheech Marin.

Into his life comes Dr Molly Griswold, played by Rene Russo who is looking for golf lessons. There's an immediate attraction, but it turns out she is the girlfriend of Tin Cup's arch-rival David Simms, with a fabulous supporting role for Don Johnson. Whilst Tin Cup has squandered his chances Simms has gone on to become a top golf pro, with much of the comedy coming from the childish oneupmanship the pair still play. Tin Cup wants to steal the girl, but first there's a little matter of earning enough money to move up from the trailer he lives in and do enough to impress Griswold, who is way out of his league. A plot is hatched to qualify for the U.S.Open through winning minor local rounds - if only he can get his clubs out of the clutches of the pawn shop....

I won't tell any more of the plot but despite much being set on the golf links there's an extremely satisfying back story and plenty of childish hijinks to enjoy. All the principle characters are well drawn, and McAvoy's pig-headed temper tantrums always see him landing himself in hot water. It's a terrifically well-scripted whole, a film I've watched many, many times and always come away satisfied. Do not let the subject matter put you off, this is so much more than a sports film, it's a deliciously light and fluffy comedy with it's tongue often planted firmly in its cheek.

This is a fantastic piece of comic genius, both from the scriptwriters and all of the actors in it. Kevin Costner is brilliant as an ex-pro golfer who is wasting away, and happens to fall for the girl of his biggest rival. And so begins his pursuit of The Open and the girl's heart!
There are real gems in this script, which I will not spoil by telling you, but suffice to say that Kev's relationship with his caddy, Romeo, is more like a marriage (and he has to justify his devotion to him more than once!), and asking advice about the woman you love FROM the woman you love is never going to be a good idea! (Romeo puts that much better in the film!). Rene Russo does very well in this film (high praise indeed from someone who normally can't stand her), but Don Johnson is somewhat disappointing as the bad guy, cos he somehow doesn't match up to Kevin in terms of his performance.
