169 Bagger Vance

The Legend of Bagger Vance [2000]

We don’t know if he’s mentioned it before, but Will Smith isn’t Rich’s favourate actor. So it was a bit of a surprise when he brought the SF Crew The Legend of Bagger Vance to scrutinize. Could this be the film that softens his attitude towards him…? It would be quite the task for a film about golf, but come and see the result as we discuss such fodder as: Hollywood’s Magical Negro, the extremely spiritual world of golf (apparently), the fundamentally horrible romance and many, many rich, white people problems once again! And all this for just 5 dollars, guaranteed!
