Quotes

Tommy Del Gaddo: Son, you're talking about cause and effect in the outside world. But we're not living in the outside world. We're living on Mount Olympus. And there's only one god and one demi-god - Mr Pallister Young and Mr Jonathan Linus... and they pick the music... and the rest of us just run around, half men and half goats. And that's the long and the short of it.

An unseen(?) flick well worth seeing, though not see-able(?).
25 July 2002 | by (Denver CO USA) – See all my reviews

A soaper posing as a sports film. What's to like for this male (besides the final golf contest)? First there are three(!) knock-out gorgeous ladies who could also act, of all things. The male supporting players are excellent. So? So RJWagner shows us how it can be done--acting and explosive chemistry with the ladies. Is this a projection of the real Wagner rather than the suave cool non-superstar apparently undeterred by the fickleness of fame. And he still works and plays and makes a difference with gusto. A comparative case in point is WINNING (almost rhymes with BANNING). This Newman-Woodward vehicle--another sports-soaper--has Wagner as third banana showing the big star what chemistry with the leading lady (and Newman's wife) and with Newman himself is all about. QED.
