Critic Reviews for Wimbledon

All in all, it's rather pleasant, but nothing else.

Top Critic

The movie needs the stars' charm and director Richard Loncraine's polish, because the faulty script is just barely good enough to hold us for 100 minutes.

Common Sense Media

An enjoyable little crowd-pleaser with likable leads and a few good laughs.

I strangly enjoyed this movie, i enjoyed it more because Sam Neill was in it but it is a good and amusing movie. Its a sweet enough Romcom with quite a few laughs.
