Editorial Reviews

Pro tennis "hot shot" Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst) is a rising star who lives to win. But when she falls for long-shot contender Peter Colt (Paul Bettany) amid the glitz and glamour of Wimbledon, Lizzie discovers it's not if you win or lose, but how you play the game…of love. A deliciously witty romantic comedy about chasing your dreams and risking your heart, Wimbledon is a fun and charming story of love across the net.

    A bunch of people have said that Wimbledon was 'too predictable.' Well, it's a romantic comedy. Of course it's predictable: boy meets girl, they fall in love, trouble pursues, they get together in the end.

    The point of seeing a love story is to see HOW all this happens. Wimbledon does a great job coming up with an original plot (love and tennis) while presenting the story in a way that draws in the audience. You really care about the characters. Kirsten Dunst, especially, creates a wonderful portrayal of Lizzie Bradbury. Lizzie is a very bold, driven, somewhat selfish character, but Dunst makes her lovable. And Bettany (Peter) plays off Dunst's performance incredibly well.

    I love this movie. It's incredibly sweet, and funny without the groaning and eye-rolling junk. It is an amazingly well-directed, well-casted, and all around well-done movie that immediately made it to the top of my favorites list.

    It's hard to define what makes 'Wimbledon' work so well where the vast majority of other romantic comedies are such utter flops. The ending is somewhat predictable, the story follows the same basic line, there's the usual healthy interspersing of sex and jokes. But still, there's something special about this movie that makes it simply a joy to watch.

    Certainly, the chemistry between Paul Bettany (as the seasoned tennis pro) and Kirsten Dunst (as the enfant terrible of the game) goes a long way toward what makes 'Wimbledon' so worth watching. Whenever these two are on the screen together, from their first meeting to the final shot of the film, they seem utterly meant to be together. They seem to share a genuine warmth and easy attitude together, never a put-on or an act. Rarely have I seen an on-screen couple that seemed so natural and unforced.

    The humor of the film is also of a higher caliber than most similar movies. Always clever and sharp but never overdone, the laughs in the movie are many, and they are also remarkably genuine.

    The style of the film, capturing the tempestuous game of tennis both on and off the court, helps a great deal as well. Most romantic comedies don't go the extra mile of capturing their subject so well, but I came away at the end of 'Wimbledon' energized equally by the sportsmanship I'd seen (an illusion remarkably well pulled off for the movie) as I was by the flowering romance essential to the story. From dynamic, 'follow-the-ball' camera shots to timed-exposure and uniquely dramatic angles and editing, I found myself enjoying the film for its technical wizardry as much as the story -- and I didn't even realize until it was over and I watched some of the DVD extras just how much of the film was crafted after the fact!

    It's funny how a film, any film, can split the opinion of so many.

    Reading the many reviews on Amazon I often wonder if people have actually seen the same movie. However, this film more than any other proves to me that personal taste is completely unpredictable.

    I should'nt like this film - I play tennis every week and used to play for the county when younger - and neither leads look like they could actually hit a four year old chipanzee off the court, let alone have a ranking. Admittedly, Paul Bettany's character carries off the ball skills a little better (what is Kirsten Dunst's service action supposed to be doing?), but the chances of him winning any match are fairly slim.

    I'm English - a film that focuses and sort of celebrates our complete inablity at producing a tennis champion seems a little like a kick in the b**ls. That he only succeeds because he finds inspiration from an American lass is like grabbing my nipples whilst kicking me in the ba**s.

    I live in Wimbledon - just two minutes away from the All England Club, and every year I curse the arrival of thousands of tourists, eagerly clogging up the streets, clutching their ticket to experience what is essentially two people hitting a pressurised rubber ball at each other. The sudden and frequent down pours and extortionate strawberries only seem to increase their enjoyment.

    I grew up in Brighton (the seaside town where Peter keeps his flat) - how romantic it all looks, all lovely Victorian lamps and run down tennis courts in prime reality. So where di they hide all the brides-to-be that are found running around town every weekend with a kiss-me-quick hat on and an L plate attached to her back? Cos without them, this isn't the Brighton I know.

    For me, there's nothing like a good romantic comedy, and when the story is set in the sports world, my interest level can be counted on to double. This one has a tennis theme, so naturally I checked it out as soon as it became available on DVD.

    British journeyman pro Peter Colt, played in a bit of stellar casting by Brit actor Paul Bettany, has never quite made it to the top, and is now resigned to the end of a long career. He's got a wild card for Wimbledon, and plans to announce his retirement after the prestigious tournament ends. When a mistaken room assignment brings him to the suite of American star Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst) - romantic sparks fly as the repartee flows - she behind the frosted shower glass, he bags in hand in the hall. It's all great fun, and we know right away this one's gonna be good.

    When in a surprise, Peter wins his first match on court 17, things begin to look up for him. The romance is right on track too, as the two discuss the merits of fooling around on the night before a big match - over fish and chips, no less.

    For Peter, fooling around seems to have hurt his game. His second round match is a budding disaster. He's headed for defeat until who should show up but Lizzie to cheer him on. In a stunning turn of events, he plays for her and wins. A streak that continues when in round 3 Peter dispatches his best friend and practice partner Nikolaj (Dieter Prohl) - despite the increasingly evident disapproval of Lizzie's driven father and coach, Dennis (Sam Neill), and the re-appearance of Peter's long absent agent Ron (Jon Favreau).

    Meanwhile, Peter's dysfunctional family add really great touches of color.
