Works better as a sports movie than a love match.

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

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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

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.

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?

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.

Lobs nothing but clichés.

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

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

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.

As predictable and impotent as a John McEnroe outburst.

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

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

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

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.
| Original Score: 3/4

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 | Original Score: 2/5

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 | Original Score: 4.5/5

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