Storyline

Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., aka "Bobby Jones" rises from complete obscurity to become a golfing legend. Jones overcomes his own fierce temper, intense passion, and perfectionist tendencies to master the game and win the Grand Slam, the U.S., British, and Amateur Opens in golf, a feat unequaled even today. But it is Jones's style, personality, and character that separate him from the other professionals in his field. When Jones realizes that his unparalleled success may be destroying those he loves he's presented with an astounding proposition, one that shocks the world. Written by IMDb Editors

Fine biopic
26 September 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I did not know anything about Bobby Jones before watching this, and it is the first of the director's films I've seen, as well. Once you forgive the terribly cringe-inducing pun in the title, you may find that the writing is actually quite good. The plot is interesting, its thematic well-presented, and the characters credible and consistent. There is an appropriate amount of humor in this, and it's pretty funny. Particularly that line about "I checked the law; you don't have to go". The acting is marvelous, with Caviezel and McDowell shining as usual. Every performance is solid, even the children are rather convincing and in general, tolerable(which is sadly not always a given, even when they're not meant to be annoying). The cinematography and editing are nicely done. Dialog is great, and well-delivered. The "moral" is predictable, completely black and white, and has little to offer, though it remains a positive thing to promote. There is infrequent, moderately strong language in this, and nothing else objectionable, apart from some potentially disturbing content. I recommend this to fans of those involved, the man who is the subject of it, and/or golf. 7/10
