Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Christian-themed golf drama (which is based on the inspirational book Golf's Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia by David Cook) has very little iffy content. There's zero language or sexuality other than chaste flirting between two young adults, and the violence doesn't go beyond some pushing and shoving and a scene of "Cowboy Poker" (trying to stay in your chair as a bull runs around you in a rodeo arena). There are some very obvious product placements by Callaway and the Golf Channel, but it's a golf movie, so it's to be expected. Although the movie's messages are overtly Christian (a scripture starts off the movie, everyone goes to church and says grace, and a Bible signifies the protagonist's conversion), non-Christian viewers could also see it as a story of redemption and believing in yourself.

Sexual Content

Luke and Sarah are clearly interested in each other, but the relationship is so chaste that she won't even accept a kiss from him.

Violence

Luke snaps a golf club in two out of anger and frustration. He also gets into a brief tussle with two rivals, but it's just pushing and shoving; no punches are thrown. Four guys play Cowboy Poker, in which they all try to stay attached to their chairs while a bull runs around them in a rodeo arena.

Language

Mild insults like "hick" and "have you choked on anything today?" are exchanged between Luke and Jake. One use of "hell."

Social Behavior

Many positive messages about unconditional love, how a father should love his son whether he wins or loses, and the idea that we need to bury the lies that keep us down. The people of Utopia teach Luke that faith, friendship, and family are all more important than winning. He learns to think of the big picture and how he'd like to live his life, rather than just pursue the top spot on the leaderboard.

Consumerism

Golf equipment/accessories company Callaway is omnipresent: the name/logo appears on clubs, caps, shirts, and golf tournament signs. At one point, Luke's father gives him a new club and mentions it's "Callaway's latest." The Golf Channel is also heavily featured, including golf commentators/analysts Kelly Tilghman and Brandel Chamblee.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character says he's going to use money for "drinks," but no one is shown drinking.
