    It's too bad. Jones deserved better than a biopic with a TV-movie heart. show more

    It's too much feel-good movie to take in one sitting, but Stroke of Genius captures just enough detail from the greatest sportsman you've never heard of to keep the historical drama interesting. show more

    Bobby Jones plays out much like a round of golf - slow, old-fashioned, tediously long, and lacking in drama. show more
