'Tin Cup'

Scene from this movie Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy (Kevin Costner) has always gone for the spectacular hole-in-one, rather than the safe shot. Consequently, he has never made it to the big leagues, while his lesser rival, David Simms, has learned how to play par and hit the big time. When super confident therapist Dr. Molly Griswald (Rene Russo) shows up for lessons, Roy is smitten. For one thing, she’s wise to his ways. For another, she’s going out with Simms. Mad enough about her to do anything, Roy decides to win the U.S. Open. With Romeo at his side, he’ll trounce Simms once and for all, win Molly and set himself up as a pro. -- Desson Howe
