What is clear, over and above everything else, is that these women, who are often in need of a best friend, have it in each other.

The filmmakers remain admirably unbiased, a rarity in biographical documentaries. They neither worship nor vilify their subject, but allow her to define herself on her own unapologetically complex terms.

Through it all, there remains, not sibling rivalry, but a rare closeness, unselfish mutual boosterism and enviable love.

Devoted, protective and domineering, Richard Williams all but steals the film, his personality dimmed not a whit since the days he learned tennis from a book so he could teach his young daughters on the public courts of Compton, California.

Once Venus and Serena flips through the duo's collection of greatest hits and hissy fits, it settles into a groove of lip service from famous people ...

Opting for inspiration over insight, Venus and Serena is a starry-eyed pop doc that cannot transcend its scattershot, for-fans-only filmmaking.

A lot of the sibling bond, a little of the sibling rivalry and just a hint of the controversy that makes these tennis players so fascinating.

...those hoping to better understand the physical and mental struggles that Serena and Venus Williams have gone through in their commitment to tennis, will be richly rewarded.
