Another stereotyped sports movie ......
26 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dead Solid Perfect" is another stereotyped sports movie, only this time it's not the underdog baseball team we're rooting for, it's Randy Quaid playing a second tier pro golfer. In the movie's favor is the fact that Quaid is somewhat sympathetic, as opposed to the obnoxious characters he usually plays. The film is part golf movie and part relationship primer, pretty accurately depicting the conflicts between men and women who are involved with the tour. Of special note is Jack Warden's performance as Randy Quaid's sponsor. Warden easily steals every scene he is in. If the predictability of "Dead Solid Perfect" can be overlooked, you will find it entertaining. - MERK
