It's as though the filmmakers were wary of making Kirsten Dunst's character too unlikable and so tell us she's this or that rather than showing us.

As predictable as the comfortable whoosh you get when you open a new can of tennis balls.

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.

Wimbledon is like a tennis match played with wet balls and wooden racquets - soggy and stiff.

The romance is just as convincing as the athletics - however, that is not meant as a compliment.

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

A hopelessly contrived and superficial romantic comedy.

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

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] floppiest of the floppy-haired British romantic comedies... Toothless and bland...

A wry, tightly-strung but ultimately contrived lesson in love.

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

As predictable and impotent as a John McEnroe outburst.
