This is a truly wonderful romp.

Some might not be ready for more tennis humour after Wimbledon 2Day's madcap take on furry-ball thwacking, yet it's worth enduring one more rally for this loopy sports comedy.

Funny in its broader-than-the-net way and packed with attention-getting "interviewees," it should play quite well when it premieres.

7 Days In Hell is something that will entertain you for 41 minutes. If you have time to kill this summer and are flipping channels, check it out.

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.

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.

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