Critic Reviews for The Battle Of The Sexes

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

  • A witty, inspiring documentary that charts Billie Jean King's drive to put women's tennis on the map.

  • A lot of the material is reused, and the timeline of events overlaps with itself on a number of occasions, which smacks of a dearth of material for a film which barely runs to 80 minutes.

  • A fascinating excavation of a crossover sports/pop culture moment from the early 70s - the novelty tennis match between Billie Jean King and 55-year-old Bobby Riggs.

  • A smart, gripping and enormously enjoyable parable.

  • Has much more to do with politics and personality than it does with hitting a ball over a net.

    Dec 20, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As fascinating as it is to relive, James Erskine's documentary struggles to make the episode a metaphor for sexism in society - an issue too big to be boiled down to one gender-politics sideshow.
