Goofs

After Dylan Baker (the father) and Mason Gamble (the son) are playing their first round of golf together and Baker realizes Gamble can play, the two walk down the fairway. The film is reversed. Both are previously shown playing right handed with gloves on their left hands, but gloves are now both on their right hands and when they stop to shake hands on a bet, they shake with their left hands.

This isn't for golfers, it's for movie-lovers.
20 May 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I am not a golfer. I don't enjoy watching golf. I don't enjoy talking about golf, and until yesterday, I didn't enjoy seeing movies about golf.

What "Gentleman's Game" showed me was that the subject isn't always the motivator and pinnacle of the film's heart. The characters and the writing is what makes this piece work and sustain my interest.

This was a very well made film with a strong cast that should be viewed by a larger audience. Gary Sinise isn't the star, but he has a good role in this film. The star is Mason Gamble, best known as "Dennis the Menace". He will be someone to watch as he grows into his acting abilities even more in the future. Mason has a strong command of the screen and is self-aware as to his presence there. (Trivia...his first role was in "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray, whose brother Brian Doyle-Murray costars in this film. Mason was also in Rushmore, again with Bill Murray.)

Dylan Baker is wonderful and understated, and Phillip Baker Hall spews country-club snobbery and hatred.

First rate cast, strong direction from a first-time director (who co-wrote) and a glossy appearance all help this film be elevated from so many out there and stand out as a wonderful little story. Nothing massive happens, just life, which is massive enough.
