Golf has its Caddyshack. Baseball has its Major League. And now tennis, another sport that some people find boring and that sometimes comes off as a wee bit pretentious, has 7 Days in Hell. Center Court may never be the same.

It's a bright and breezy 42 minutes. Samberg is obviously having the time of his life; Harington, having shed the weight of the Wall, looks years younger, and even HBO has a new spring in its step.

Quick, easy, filthy, stupid, funny. You don't need to know anything more.

You'd have to search far and wide to find a program that hits its chosen target with such concentrated glee.

I assume a lot of viewers will find it funnier than I did, but I certainly admired the craft, and the impressive cast, that went into making this grass-court trifle.

Far from perfect but pretty good is HBO's 7 Days in Hell, a true oddity that knows to end just when it's about to get annoying.
July 13, 2015
With its nutty playfulness, 7 Days in Hell is 45 minutes of fast-moving, goofy fun.
July 13, 2015
It serves up just the right combination of silly and sly, and -- rare and wonderful in a comedy -- it knows when to get off the court.

The film fulfills the mockumentary promise it starts out with, but ends up becoming a whole lot more, mostly thanks to an all-star cast.

Funny thing is, even with its flaws, the comedy actually did do something remarkable - it made me want to sit down and watch a game of tennis.

If it were more straight-faced, "7 Days in Hell" could work better.

It's hard to imagine that the pitch session for the regrettably unfunny 7 Days in Hell... actually produced anything more than a polite "no thanks" from the usually discerning network. The bottled water in that meeting must have been gin.

Perhaps inevitably for a documentary spoof chronicling an exercise in (albeit fictional) endurance, 7 Days in Hell starts with considerable promise before gradually running out of gas.
July 13, 2015
Weirdly, in a cast of comedy greats like the above, Harington is the stand-out.
July 13, 2015
7 Days in Hell is flush with over-the-top raunch and absurdist asides, but there's a shaggy charm about this production, a sort of "let's put on a show!" quality that is easy to warm to.

[It] is often quite funny, particularly in its sillier moments, including a drunk Queen Elizabeth calling Poole to demand a win, Williams' reactions to streakers on the tennis court and a digital reenactment of a Swedish prison orgy.

It's outrageous the way Spinal Tap is outrageous: oddly believable, because 7 Days mimics (and mocks) aspects of real, and dead serious, sports documentaries.
