Kids say: Not yet rated

No surprises, no nuance, no inspiration in this disappointing underdog sports story; kids and golf deserve better. Despite an engaging, solid performance by lead actor Boyd Kestner as William "Hutch" McGee, the movie simply doesn't work. Situations are hackneyed, characters are one-dimensional, and the direction is by the numbers, with Jim Valdez making many questionable artistic choices and allowing some of his performers to overact mercilessly. On the plus side, Valdez has enlisted some fine character actors for the film: Rob Morrow and Mark Moses are fine in smaller roles. Given the number of available meaningful, entertaining, and rousing sports stories centered on kids, teens, and coaches, this one is a time-waster.
