If you plan to sit through this you're going to need one of two things; a) a strong stomach, or b) no brain.
*** Spoilers follow *** The main characters in this movie are an ageing Pro-Golfer father and his golf obsessed daughter. Their entire range of conversation is talking about golf and expressing their love for each other, and absolutely nothing else. The mother walked out five years before, and listening to these two it's hardly surprising. There's also an uncle around occasionally who's no more interesting.
The daughter is convinced her daddy is the greatest golfer in the world, and turns out to be some sort of caddying prodigy. She makes a bet with him that if she can beat him in a round, he'll carry on his career, which of course she does. Good to hear betting is OK in the eyes of The Lord.
Thus they embark on a golfing tour, although oddly they always seem to be staying in the same hotel throughout. There's also this inane, creepy, grinning woman who keeps turning up and talking even more drivel to them.
Then we get to the drive of the story as the daughter is diagnosed with leukaemia. At last, a new topic for the characters to talk about. The mother turns up at the hospital to see her sick daughter, and we discover that no one's even bothered to tell her that her daughter's got leukaemia. Further, the dad and uncle refuse to let her even see her own daughter, because "she's done fine without her over the past five years." These people are sick.
I really couldn't take any more, but my guess is that the father was inspired to win, got together with the boring woman, and the daughter recovered. Thus the cycle of generational mental illness continues.
And I viewed this on God TV. I found it to be repugnant.
