An unseen(?) flick well worth seeing, though not see-able(?).
25 July 2002 | by dlwendellSee all my reviews

A soaper posing as a sports film. What's to like for this male (besides the final golf contest)? First there are three(!) knock-out gorgeous ladies who could also act, of all things. The male supporting players are excellent. So? So RJWagner shows us how it can be done--acting and explosive chemistry with the ladies. Is this a projection of the real Wagner rather than the suave cool non-superstar apparently undeterred by the fickleness of fame. And he still works and plays and makes a difference with gusto. A comparative case in point is WINNING (almost rhymes with BANNING). This Newman-Woodward vehicle--another sports-soaper--has Wagner as third banana showing the big star what chemistry with the leading lady (and Newman's wife) and with Newman himself is all about. QED.
