A Movie that makes you rethink.
This movie is fun to watch because it portrays a type of life that I think many of us fantasize about living. While we're caught up in the everyday rat race some people like Roy McAvoy (Costner) are living in a run down texas golf range that he barely owns and playing golf pro to get by. They're betting on insignificant things like which bug will get zapped in the zapper next and just taking life slow and easy. The movie will remind you that you can still rise from such mediocrity and achieve great things with the right motivation, but it also says that slowing down and enjoying life might be a lot more important than gaining material possessions.
Tin Cup (DVD, 1997)
Kind of a funky, and offbeat movie about a golf driving range pro (Kevin Costner) in a small West Texas town. He is one hell of a golfer and probably could have made it big on the PGA tour, but has a problem with immaturity and self discipline. He meets Rene Russo a psychiatrist who comes for lessons. Soon, he realizes that she is the girlfriend of his old time rival and arch-nemesis and successful pro golfer played by Don Johnson. He comes to see Kostner, who is known by all as "Tin Cup". Costner's caddy and partner is Cheech Marin. Johnson wants Kostner to caddy for him at his golf tournament. He needs the money so he agrees. But in the middle of the tournament, he does something stupid and embarrasses Johnson and is fired. He falls for Russo, and she starts giving him therapy for his inability to grow up. He wins a few tournaments and is eligible for the U.S.Open. Again though, he can't keep the badger in the bag, and with victory in plain sight misbehaves and blows the tournament. This was an enjoyable movie, but sort of stupid at times.
Tin Cup (1997,dvd)
Tin Cup is one of the best sports films ever made. However,I could see how someone might not like it,because they think golf is boring. I disagree with the thought of golf being boring,but everybody has a right to their opinion. The movie stars Kevin Costner,Rene Russo,Cheech Marin,and Don Johnson. Kevin Costner plays aging golf pro Roy Macvoy. He owns a run down driving range in the middle of nowhere. Roy is content in his life until he meets Molly played by Rene Russo. She wants a golf lesson because her boyfriend is a tour pro,and wouldn't you know her boyfriend David Simms an old competitor of Roy's. Don Johnson does an excellent job of conveying what a dirtbag this guy is. Therefore,Roy has to show Molly that he is as good as David by qualifying for the U.S. Open. Kevin Costner and Rene Russo make a great couple in the movie. You root for him to win the U.S. Open,but his go for broke philosophy does him in. Doesn't that remind you of someone else? Say Phil Mickelson. He had the U.S. Open won,and just keeping driver on the tee until he gave the tournament away. I never been much of a Cheech Marin fan,but he turns in a good performance as his caddy/friend who tries to get him to listen to reason out on the course with little success. Ron Shelton directed the film. He is a genius at sport films having done Bull Durham and White Men Can't Jump. Tin cup proves Kevin Costner is a good actor. Yes I know Waterworld sucked,but give the guy a break. Highly recommended for golf fans.
Tin Cup is is a top shelf comedy in Golf and Life
I bought this DVD because I wanted to own it. I already have a copy from the TV for myself, but still wanted the DVD as it is one of my favorite shows of all time. It and Caddy Shack are two of the all time funniest shows in my view. Gongrats to Bill Murrey actually winning the Pro Am this week. Both shows have a golf theme, but the comedy is way beyond just golf stuff. This all star cast of Don Johnson, Renea Russou, Kevin Costner, Cheech Marin, and others did a great job. It is nuts, but perhaps even has a message about life and living. Glad I now actually own it.
