Tin Cup alert!

  1. Tin Cup is on the Golf Channel.
    Love this movie. Better than Caddyshack. And Happy Gilmore.

    You need to watch it unedited.. though the golf channel is better than nothing.

    I got a call from a friend asking me what was the golf swing to Roy McAvoy. I proceeded to give the first half of the monologue, accurate to about 90 percent.

    Imagine what I could do if my brain was filled with useful shit.

    For some reason, I hated it and fell asleep the first time I saw it.

    But on repeat viewings, it grew on me.

    I'd rank it ahead of Happy Gilmore, but no way near Caddyshack on my list.

    The soundtrack is worth it by itself.

    But she doesn't have a certain zest for life.

    I do enjoy this flick. Sometimes I wish Roy would just lay up.

    Much as I really like this flick, it falls to pieces at the end when a 3-wood stops dead on the 18th green and then rolls backward into the water. Just no fucking way that ever happens.

    There were enough good golf people with input into that movie that allowing that at the end is just inexcusable.

    On the other hand, I think it was one of the worst golf movies ever made.

    1. Despite its circa of 1996, the guy is still hitting persimmon woods. Titanium existed back then. A guy who was that much of a stud player would be hitting metal driver and woods.
    2. He's playing a U.S. Open sectional with earphones on. For no apparent reason. Not allowed under the rules.
    3. See Old Tony post. A 3-wood launched that far is going to be coming in hot, and will not check up and roll back.
    4. The argument about whether there was a Waffle House in either Odessa or Midland was silly. I'd suspect that there are multiple Waffle Houses in both towns.

    And the acting wasn't good. Rene Russo looked fine, however.

    And I hated it when Charlie Conway got to take the penalty shot without his helmet on.
