Movie Info

Directed by Richard Loncraine, Wimbledon follows the plight of aspiring tennis-star Peter Colt (Paul Bettany), whose bad luck seems to manifest itself just about everywhere. Professionally, Peter is near the very bottom of the world tennis ranks, and personally, he can't find love despite his best efforts to do so. In a rare turn of events, however, Peter is chosen as a wildcard to play at Wimbledon, the tennis world's most prestigious competition. While there, he meets American tennis ingénue … More

Critic Reviews for Wimbledon

All Critics (149) | Top Critics (39) | Fresh (87) | Rotten (57) | DVD (27)

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

Time Out
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.

A pleasant enough entertainment at a time when movies either pleasant or entertaining are in short supply.

[A] reluctant thumbs down.

Slick, satisfying entertainment.

Full Review… | September 18, 2004
Top Critic

The kind of movie that allows the non-cynical movie-goer to sit back and relax in the presence of actors who work well with each other and a script whose familiarity is an asset.

Top Critic

Works better as a sports movie than a love match.

Full Review… | December 29, 2010
Common Sense Media

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

Full Review… | October 30, 2006
Dark Horizons

The story plays out predictably with a happy ending -- think The Natural on Wimbledon's Centre Court -- and all in all, it's a decent romantic comedy.

August 25, 2006
Christianity Today

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.

Full Review… | December 6, 2005
Film Threat

Do we really need to see another film where a gorgeous, talented and desired American woman is whisked away by a stammering insecure British man with an inner monologue?

Full Review… | July 25, 2005

Lobs nothing but clichés.

Lessons of Darkness

Bettany and Dunst make a cute couple that is as fiercely competitive in their love lives as they are on the court.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Trillada? Relativamente Complaciente? Absolutamente Buena? Podr vivir sin verla. Pero definitivamente si la ve... saldr gratamente complacido.

Wimbledon ends up playing on wet clay...

Talking Pictures (U.S.)

Não é um filme inovador, é verdade, mas foi competente o bastante para fazer com que eu me importasse com o destino do casal principal sem ficar entediado durante o processo.

Cinema em Cena

As predictable and impotent as a John McEnroe outburst.

Full Review… | October 11, 2004
Movie Boeuf

No amount of charm on the part of the stars can overcome the pall of generic conventions used in such a rote manner.

Full Review… | October 10, 2004

Ably, consistently directed and featuring attractive, likeable leads, yet also still so formulaic and quirk-free as to lull you into a stupor.

Full Review… | October 5, 2004
Entertainment Today

Joins 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Notting Hill' and 'About a Boy' in that distinctly British niche of 'chick flicks' that can be enjoyed without a lobotomy.

September 28, 2004
Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Trails some way behind the class of its predecessors, with a trailer that makes it look a lot funnier than it really is.

Full Review… | September 28, 2004

Don't pigeonhole this sweetly funny journey of self-discovery as a romance - it deserves your attention as a movie about the greater concept of commitment.

Full Review… | September 26, 2004

Bettany is charming, and thankfully he and Dunst are appealing together.

Audience Reviews for Wimbledon

In fairness i never though a tennis related film would be so good.

Scott Green

Super Reviewer

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.
