Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor I would rather eat a golf ball than see this movie again.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average Seven Days at the Links of Utopia," caters to specific audience members who go to the movies once or twice a year seeking uplifting yet unrealistic narratives. Efficient editing helps to keep the film interesting.

NY Post Full Review
Average 'Seven Days in Utopia" obviously isn't targeted at us cynical New Yorkers. But it goes down more smoothly than you'd imagine thanks to Duvall and an excellent supporting cast,...

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 61 moviegoers:
I love it when the critics rate a movie low and moviegoers rate it very high! It certainly validates the value of moviegoer reviews.
Moviegoers are clearly saying "Seven Days In Utopia" is not even close to just an average movie, as the critics say. Roger Ebert even rated it as "Poor." These are outstanding reviews from all ages, both males and females. If you want to see a wonderful, feel-good movie, don't miss "Seven Days In Utopia."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Down-and-out golfer Luke Chisholm (Black) is about to take a detour into an enchanting small town and an incredible camaraderie that will become a game-changer in more ways than he could ever imagine. It all begins with a major, mid-tournament meltdown, just as Luke is supposed to be making his big breakthrough to the pro tour. In a blowup so embarrassing it spurs news headlines, Luke drives his father/coach to abandon him, and seemingly squanders his promising career. But when he heads out onto the Texas back-roads to blow off some steam, Luke instead blows right through the pasture fence of eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Duvall) - and finds himself stranded smack in the middle of the tiny, unsung town of Utopia . . . which will have an impact far greater than the sum of its parts.

Just as it looks like Luke's day couldn't get any worse, Johnny offers him an implausible but irresistible deal: spend the next seven days in Utopia and see if it doesn't change his life's course entirely. The next thing he knows, Luke is being lured into a wild summer adventure of dodging rodeo bulls, piloting airplanes and fishing in untamed rivers. It seems like a good old time, which Luke could certainly use, but woven through the fun comes Johnny's hard-won personal lessons about heart, faith and why becoming who you were meant to be has nothing to do with winning, and everything to do with how you approach the game.

After searching in Utopia for a lot of things - reconciliation, redemption, romantic love and a better drive off the tee -- Luke is ready take a chance on his last shot at a pro career. Only this time he's equipped with the one thing that really matters: a sense of higher purpose he's ready to put into play.
