BOBBY JONES, STROKE OF GENIUS
Jim Caviezel does a commendable job as Bobby Jones, the only golfer to ever win the four Grand Slam tournaments in the same year, but the story’s lacking dramatic arc, overlong running time, and dreadful musical score by James Horner make it a snoozefest to overlook.
Jeremy Northam (“Gosford Park”) plays Bobby’s egotistical golf rival Walter Hagen with a sharp wit that elevates the movie whenever he’s onscreen, although Claire Forlani is severely miscast as Bobby Jones’ put upon wife.
Rated PG. 120 mins.
