From Back Cover:

"Blissfully romantic and funny. Costner gives his sexiest and wittiest performance since 'Bull Durham.' Russo is magical."
-Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

An unreachable shot to the green. A hopeless romance. Driving-range pro Roy McAvoy can't resist an impossible challenge. Each is what he calls a defining moment. You define it. Or it defines you.

With lady-killer charm and a game that can make par with garden tools, Kevin Costner rejoins Bull Durham filmmaker Ron Shelton for another funny tale of the games people play. For Costner's Roy, golf is a head - and heart - game. On both counts, that's where shrink Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) comes in. She's big city, Roy's small time, and he believes only the grandest of gestures can lure her away from a slick touring pro (Don Johnson)and earn her love. So Roy and his dutiful caddy (Cheech Marin) set out to do the impossible: win the U.S. Open. With laughs, clever battle-of-the-sexes banter and a handy way with a 7-iron, Tin Cup winningly defines the moment and contemporary romantic comedy.

My Comments:

I haven't actually seen this movie since its theatrical release, so I can't say much about it. I do remember, however, that the ending was a little too long and drawn out. But, then again, it's a Kevin Costner movie, so long and drawn out is kind of par for the course.
