Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Greatest Game Ever Played is as feel-good as any sports movie you're likely to find. It's a solid choice for family viewing, but is equally worthy of viewing by solo adults. And being a golf fan is not a prerequisite.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The technique is at the service of a game in which everything is at risk, and we like both players; our affection for them makes everything trickier, and certainly as the final rounds are played, the games themselves seem to have been scripted to create as much suspense as possible.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A story of courage, passion and of the greatest American sports hero you have probably never heard of...An amateur player from a working class family, Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf), shocked the world when at the 1913 U.S. Open, flanked by his 10-year-old caddie, he defeated his idol, the defending British champion Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane). An unlikely match-up, "the ingénue versus the seasoned champ", theirs was the greatest match the sport had ever know.
