Tin Cup (1996) - Movie Review and Analysis

Aaron and Steve discuss the 1996 romantic comedy/golf movie, Tin Cup. Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) is a former golf prodigy who now spends his time as a golf pro at a run-down driving range in West Texas. Content to aimlessly hit balls on the range, conduct the occasional golf lesson and drink each night with his local crew, his life changes when a new student revives his spark for the game. The new student, Dr. Molly Giswold (Rene Russo), happens to be the new girlfriend of his lifelong golf rival David Simms (Don Johnson.)  Through personal and professional humiliations by Simms, Roy sets out on a mission to win the U.S. Open golf tournament and win the good Doctor’s heart in the process.
