Luke Chisholm (Lucas Black) is a young golfer who's about to take a swing at the big time.

Johnny makes Luke an irresistible offer: spend a week with him in the tiny town of Utopia and see if Luke can change his life.

  • Until its final seconds, Seven Days in Utopia is just a piece of gee-whiz, G-rated, nicely shot evangelism outfitted as a golf movie. Then it cuts away at the pivotal moment that's normally the life's blood of inspirational sports dramas - and becomes something vastly more obnoxious. show more

  • Until Seven Days in Utopia sucker punches you with a surfeit of faith-based platitudes, its upbeat brand of golf mysticism isn't altogether unappealing. show more

  • There's a climactic putt, of course, but by then you wish Duvall would get one more "Tender Mercies" under his belt so you can forget about this tin cup of a family flick. show more

    Just saw Seven Days and we loved it. We have seen Lucas Black in a couple other movies and really enjoyed his acting. This time he proved what a good actor he is. I told my husband he\'d look good in a \"cowboy\" hat, but he\'s not bad in his golfing hat as it turns out. I\'m telling my kids and their families to watch this, because I know they will also enjoy it.

    Quietly confident little movie that spoke the truth loud and clear. Enjoyed it.

    In a climate of violence and non existent vakues, this movie is an unexpected jewl. I\'m sure the anal retentive Oscar nomination people will pass it over for not being more secular in scope, but for those of you that actually go to see this film hoping for a valuable and entertaining life lesson, you won\'t be disappointed. The cute and uber sexy little redhead from the \'Trueblood\' series did a fabulous job and deserves massive cudos. The protagonist along with typically incredable assists from Robert Duvall both deserve Oscar nods. It\'s odd almost to the point of LUDICROUS that right out of the blue a movie of such powe and meaningful messages and presentation should appear among the typical \'Harry Potter\' cult fiction and Killer Elite fare. Do yourself a favor and visit this film whenever it comes to your theatres.
