    Slick, satisfying entertainment, as is the chemistry of Dunst and Bettany.
  2. 75
    This is not a great movie, and you will be able to live quite happily without seeing it, but what it does, it does with a certain welcome warmth.
  3. 70
    You aren't likely to see a film with more warmth and good humor anytime soon or one that does more to give feel good filmmaking a good name.
  4. Reviewed by: Angie Errigo
    The tennis itself is ridiculously far-fetched, and yet this may still be the best tennis movie ever made.
  5. Surprisingly, the weak link is Dunst, who's previously been the delight of all her movies.
  6. 50
    The best thing about all of this is Bettany.
  7. There's no hiding a hokey love story that undercuts the picture's compelling tennis scenes.

    As somebody with only a passing interest in the game of tennis, I must admit to finding this movie quite enjoyable. It was nice to see somebody other than Hugh Grant play the awkward English gentleman and the chemistry between Bettany and Dunst is believable. I felt the supporting cast we not really given enough screen time to properly develop but this does not detract from the main storyline which proceeds along at a nice pace. A typical rom-com but one that is well worth a watch. Expand
