Did You Know?

Trivia

Timmy Price's house is actually co-writer Tom Coyne's parents' house, where Coyne was living during filming. See more »

Goofs

When Timmy is playing golf with his father and his father is squatting to take a look at his putting line, he say's "Same model putter that Ben Hogan used when he won the Grand Slam". This is historically incorrect because Bobby Jones is the only player to ever win the "Grand Slam". (4 major wins in one season) This happened in 1930 and Bobby Jones retired thereafter. Ben Hogan was one of the best players ever, he came close in 1953 winning 3 out of the 4 majors. He won the Masters, U.S. Open, and The British Open, this is known as the "Hogan Slam" but not the "Grand Slam". See more »

Quotes

Timmy Price: Well, maybe I could hit a few balls up here and you could give me some pointers.
Foster Pearse: Do I *look* like Mr. Miyagi to you? Wax on, wax off. Oh yes, Timmy-san, you hit a few balls, I give you pointers.

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.
