This documentary shows that the Williams sisters have always been judged by a different standard than everyone else, except in terms of wins and losses. It is the Williams family against the world, and they like it that way.

They've made the sport more interesting, both as black athletes and as women...we left Venus and Serena inspired us to get out in the sun and get moving. And call our siblings.

It doesn't quite get inside their heads, but it's brimming with vigour - rather like the girls themselves.

They're perfect American drama queens. All that's missing is a last act.

An amiable enough overview, with the occasional 'say what?' moment.

An engaging, warts-and-all look at the Williams sisters.

The film works better as a thrilling but superficial celebration of two incredible athletes instead of a personal portrait of two world-famous women who continue to make sports history.

Less hagiography than a movie about an unusual, fascinating bond between sisters.

May 10, 2013
Fans probably won't learn much they don't already know, but the film covers enough ground to feel like the movie equivalent of one of those lengthy, in-depth articles you used to get in the magazine of your Sunday newspaper.

The movie offers up much fascinating then-and-now footage.

Think of this movie as a greatest-hits package, with some good stuff to show but nothing very new to say.

What is clear, over and above everything else, is that these women, who are often in need of a best friend, have it in each other.

Lively if slightly worshipful ...
May 9, 2013
The filmmakers remain admirably unbiased, a rarity in biographical documentaries. They neither worship nor vilify their subject, but allow her to define herself on her own unapologetically complex terms.

May 9, 2013
Through it all, there remains, not sibling rivalry, but a rare closeness, unselfish mutual boosterism and enviable love.
May 9, 2013
Devoted, protective and domineering, Richard Williams all but steals the film, his personality dimmed not a whit since the days he learned tennis from a book so he could teach his young daughters on the public courts of Compton, California.
