During the big 1930 golf match, there are numerous scenes of drinking in a very socially acceptable and legal manner. From 1919 until 1933 the U.S. was under Prohibition. Although there was much laxity in enforcing this law, which led to its being repealed in only 14 years, this was a situation where someone could not have gotten away with violating it. See more »
After viewing this film, I am feeling really good about myself right about now. This movie was uplifting and inspiring. You will feel good about yourself after seeing it. And that is probably what Robert Redford has hoped would happen. Hehe. That little s***. This movie has the exact feel of those other feel-good movies that have come before it. Ex. THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, OCTOBER SKY, etc. But, for some reason THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE seemed to be one of the better films of that genre. It almost made me cry, which very rarely ever happens. Matt Damon is a good actor. I hope to see more of him everywhere. If you are in the mood for a happy movie that will make you feel good about yourself, see this one.....5/5.
Oh, and it was good to see Jack Lemmon in this film. Especially since it is the last one he ever plays in.
