AllMusic Review by

Robert Redford's photogenic adaptation of Steven Pressfield's The Legend of Bagger Vance features an equally pretty, traditional score by Rachel Portman. Pieces like "Hole in One" (the film's main theme), "Bagger Offers to Caddy for Junuh," and "Savannah Needs a Hero" are string-laden, vaguely anthemic compositions that match the film's somewhat bland sentimentality. Though it works well within the film's context, Portman's score isn't quite compelling enough on its own to succeed as an album.
