Just rented and saw the video. I'm not much of a golfer fan, but there wasn't anything else in the redbox that I wanted to see. I thought I was going to be bored and mainly rented it so my wife would have something to watch tonight. Well, I was pleasantly surprised and actually enjoyed it. I want to hear what other people have to say about it before I share my comments.

For those into gematria, notice the population of Utopia at 51 seconds. The movie is about more than golf and winning.

Hi Steve,

My mother-in-law visited about 2 weeks ago and brought it with her. We all liked it very much and glad she brought it. She always seems to bring us a good movie. Especially liked how Robert Duval set up object lessons for this young man. Also, liked how Robert Duval wanted him to have a passion for life and living. The young man was too worried about failing and did not view life as an adventure. He saw life only as success or failure. Those were his only two measurements and he was missing the joy of living. He learned in Utopia that life is meant to be enjoyed.

All the best,
Rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your comments. If you go to rottentomatoes.com , you will see the critics rating at 12%, but the public rating at 71%. That usually tells me it's a good wholesome movie.:lol:

I thought there were several good messages in the movie. What you said and also the problem with putting people, including ourselves, on a pedestal. The ending to the movie was an interesting twist. I obviously went to my laptop immediately after the movie.:lol:

What a clever way to share the gospel in a less intimidating way.
