About this movie

Shia LaBeouf stars as amateur golfer Francis Ouimet. Armed with nothing but talent, the working-class youth has a seemingly impossible dream: to compete against the world's greatest player, his idol Harry Vardon. Soon, with the help of his spunky, 10-year-old caddy Eddie, Francis boldly breaks down all barriers with a thrilling display of unrivaled drive, skill, and heart...and challenges the golf pro for the U.S. Open Championship! You'll feel the breathless anticipation of the crowd and practically smell the grass on the green as you immerse yourself in the action. Based on an inspirational true story, THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED is an adventure in courage that will entertain your whole family.

All that the American Dream was once based on. A brilliant and constantly thrilling story about merit and talent versus aristocracy and wealth, about love and dedication. MUST SEE! Up with love and merit! Down with corporations!

What a hart warming and beautiful story. This is early and Shia LaBeouf's career but you can see his charisma on screen. I don't even follow golf or like golf but it's still a movie about the American dream. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it has some very lush production values and is a movie the whole family can enjoy.
