Is golf really a spectator sport?
2 September 2002 | by rlcsljoSee all my reviews

You take a big swing with a wood or metal or plastic mallet, a dimpled white ball goes speeding off. There is no one to catch it or try to take it away from you, or prevent you from retrieving it. You walk or ride at a leisurely pace to whack at it again. When you get close to the hole you give it a tiny whack until it falls in. You might get caught in a "trap" or a "hazard" or in the "rough" which to anything but a helpless paraplegic is none of these things.

So what makes it exciting? Money and girls! The latter are very good in this film--the rest, like watching paint dry.
