Tin Cup

I do enjoy this movie. It's a sports movie, which I suppose is a little incongruent for me, but it's got a lot of romance in it too. It's so trailer-y because Kevin Costner is this balls-to-the-wall golf-pro who runs a driving range, used to date a stripper, lives in a trailer on a hill above the range, wears dirty wife-beaters. Renee Russo is in it as this woman who is originally with his arch competitor, but winds up with him. it's all very trashy. They talk trash, they're slightly trailer trash, and the movie didn't do very well, but I really enjoyed it...

A sports movie that is less about sports and more about the people who are compulsed to play.
