"Like it or not, the game belongs to Maurice Flitcroft."
I don't play golf, I generally do NOT like biopics, & from the bits of the trailer I caught, The Phantom of the Open?
No, thanks. Not for me.
In fact, if not for putting off Lightyear & Elvis, & having seen basically everything else that's playing at my go-to theatre (despite a recent 12-day AMC hiatus), I wouldn't have wasted a reservation on it.
& I would've missed out on possibly the duckiest biopic of the decade. This flick is NUKED, y'all!
Granted it comes in hot with a handful of gimmes like Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins, & a banger soundtrack full of disco & other smooth sounds of the '70s. All of which definitely…
