A seductively enjoyable, smart and well-acted film ...

Finally, a tennis movie that works. After the disappointing Borg vs McEnroe, we get another high-profile tennis film about a clash of personalities, only this one is defined by thrills, heartache, politics and passion.

Should be a grand slam right? Not quite.

Slick and fun, "Battle of the Sexes" is an ace.

This is mainstream filmmaking at the top of its game.

All that's expected from the leads is that they put forth a competent degree of mimicry; the secondary characters, meanwhile, are left with little to do but flounder.

The chalk lines in "Battle of the Sexes" stretch into the past and future, measuring how far we've come since then and how far we have to go.

The pace is swift, and the '70s setting is rich: the throbbing soundtrack, the retro click of a telephone dial, the bright colors and pageantry of the match.

Emma Stone and Steve Carell are both excellent, which makes you wish Beaufoy had done more with the story's most complicated friendship-between the two well-matched athletes.

As upbeat and entertaining as it undeniably is, Battle Of The Sexes sees that battle as ongoing.
September 28, 2017
Battle of the Sexes is almost by definition predictable - the outcome of its title tennis match is well known - but there was one scene that made my jaw drop.
September 27, 2017
Battle of the Sexes is a film as concerned with the present as the past.

Stone and Carell both give big, winning movie-star performances, even if they can't quite be said to disappear into their roles.
September 25, 2017
If Battle of the Sexes is unsurprising to a fault, it's by no means a double fault. The movie is very entertaining.

There are more artistically inspired versions of the "Battle of the Sexes" story, but in art, like in tennis, the moment dictates the shot; this moment called for a crisp forehand smash, and "Battle of the Sexes" delivered.
