Shelton has a talent for using the specific to illustrate the universal. Avowed baseball haters loved "Bull Durham." And if watching golf sounds like an excellent insomnia cure, you will probably still enjoy Tin Cup.

Rene Russo is both knowing and vulnerable, proving beyond a doubt that she is modern Hollywood's one true heiress to the screwball tradition. [19 August 1996, p.68]

Bright, stylish, ridiculously alluring.

Well written. The dialogue is smart and fresh.

This movie ranks as better-than-par entertainment.

Accomplishes the impossible, maybe the unimaginable -- it makes golf entertaining.

The good news about the amiable but only partly satisfying Tin Cup is that it frees Kevin Costner from playing a monument and restores to us the loose, sparkling comic actor he used to be. [19 August 1996, p.66]

Squanders an appealing performance from Costner.

Austin Chronicle
If you've got money to waste and enjoy pain, go ahead and see this movie. Or just play a round of golf. Six of one…

I can think of only one bit of Tin Cup that's beautiful, imaginative, and different, and it lasts for only a few seconds: a speech delivered by Russo, before her character is transformed into the standard-issue cheerleader, is broken into fragments by jump cuts.
