Trivia

"Seven Days in Utopia" is the third film credit which Robert Duvall and Lucas Black share. In addition to the 1996 film "Sling Blade" in which they shared no screen time, they appeared in the 2009 film "Get Low" which also starred Bill Murray and Sissy Spacek. See more »

Goofs

The morning after a torrential rain near the end of the film, Luke is instructed to bury a box in a small hole dug into the earth. The dirt - whether recently dug or not - would have shown some moisture retained from the storm and would not have been the fine dusty powdered dirt in this scene following that size of a thunderstorm. The hole, too, would have shown some moisture absorbed into the earth. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Johnny Crawford: How can a game have such an effect on a man's soul? The way I see it, how can it not? You don't chose the game, it choses you. And when it does, life and golf become forever connected. That's how it was for a young man named Luke Chisholm.

Nice cute story....ruined by the religion thing at the end
22 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this site and rely on it a lot as a movie lover but needed to add a regular person review here. Kind of getting tired of these "christian" movies. Really...I watched the whole movie only to be told to find out if he won the damn tourney after the movie was over on a religious web site. Give me a break.

Don't waste your time on this one. I love fun and happy going movies and am not anti-god....but this is just silly. Don't waste your time. Lord have mercy. The acting was cute...and the story line was even OK...acting was medium but having a movie with an ending that says....if you want to find out what happens go visit my web site so I can preach to you is just ludicrous. It's about as solid as Rick Santorum for president. I would give it a 3.0 as a movie because of the stupid tactics.
