In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted and Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw "smokers," and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land.
A high school swim champion with a troubled past enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard's "A" School, where legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall teaches him some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
Roy 'Tin cup' McAvoy, a failed pro golfer who lives at the run-down driving range which he manages with his sidekick and caddy Romeo in the West Texas tin pot town of Salome, ends up signing over ownership to a madam of 'show girls' to pay off debts. His foxy novice golf pupil, female psychiatrist Dr. Molly Griswold, turns out to be the new girlfriend of McAvoy's sarcastic one-time college golf partner, slick PGA superstar David Simms, who drops by to play into Roy's fatal flaw: the inability to resist a dare, all too often causing him to lose against lesser players, in this case gambling away his car. Falling for Molly, Roy decides to become her patient; in order to earn her respect, he decides to try to qualify for the US Open, after starting off as Simm's caddy 'for the benefit of his experience'. His talent proves more then adequate, but over-confident negligence of risks, while pleasing the crowds, is murder on his scores, while Simms spits on the fans but never wastes a point...Written by
In the scene where Roy and his entourage meet at the Waffle House, an argument breaks out about whether the Waffle House near Salome is in Midland or Odessa. Doreen (Linda Hart) declares she is certain it is in Odessa because she is from there, settling the argument. In truth, there is no Waffle House in either Midland or Odessa. See more »
When Roy visits Molly at her office, his collar is sometimes well-adjusted and sometimes the left side larger then the right. See more »
Dr. Molly Griswold:
Oh, you amuse me, Roy, but I'm the only woman in America born after World War II that thinks astrology's a crock of shit.

This movie is fun. This movie is funny. It has the best of casts. The golf, even if you don't understand golf (and I don't) is great. The music is perfect for it. The ending isn't what you'd expect. This movie is a 10 plus all the way. The best part about it? Kevin Costner totally. Along with Cheech Marin, they make a great comedic team. Wish they'd team up again. Rent it and have a good time.
