Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) is a talented golf pro, who owns his own driving range. That sounds impressive, but the reality is quite different. While it's true that Roy is indeed a talented golfer and does own a driving range, it is in a tiny, unheard of Texas backwater. With almost no customers, he is likely to go broke. His golfing talents remain untapped and his life is rapidly going nowhere. To pass the time, he drinks a lot of beer with his buddies, or swings at a bucket of balls. Sometimes, he even plays real golf, and his friend and assistant Romeo (Cheech Marin) caddies for him.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As he always does in comedy, Costner grants an irresistible gleam of gallantry to male mulishness."
‑ Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"Amiable and constantly amusing rather than uproarious, this mangy tale of a ne'er-do-well's fitful assault on personal and professional respectability benefits greatly from Kevin Costner's ingratiatingly comic star turn."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"The dialogue and characters are convincing and intelligently developed. Russo wears vulnerability and neediness like a second skin, while Costner plays the tragic hero with considerable charm."
‑ , Film4
"Shelton resurrects the likable Costner of "Bull Durham" in this genial golf comedy."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Like other Shelton movies, it's dappled with interesting characters."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"Tin Cup works for viewers of any handicap."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Costner hasn't been this charming and spontaneous for years."
‑ , Time Out
"You can almost feel writer-director Ron Shelton praying for lightning to strike twice, but to no avail."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Lose about 30 minutes and there may be a stronger film in there."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Predictable and lame."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"The climactic game, in which Roy, in a way that defies prediction, attempts to sink the shot of his life, is the most rousing sequence of the year, a celebration of what it really means to win."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Tin Cup, starring Kevin Costner as a likable loser, accomplishes the impossible, maybe the unimaginable -- it makes golf entertaining."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"What makes Tin Cup such an unabashed pleasure is Shelton's care in writing and developing interesting characters."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"All the golf action and happy "feel-good" emotions that audiences expect (and want) but... without following the traditional sports movie conventions."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"This is a marginally enjoyable film. It could have been a lot better with more effort."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
