An enjoyable little crowd-pleaser with likable leads and a few good laughs.
February 9, 2006
All in all, it's rather pleasant, but nothing else.
July 25, 2005
Do we really need to see another film where a gorgeous, talented and desired American woman is whisked away by a stammering insecure British man with an inner monologue?
July 21, 2005
The movie needs the stars' charm and director Richard Loncraine's polish, because the faulty script is just barely good enough to hold us for 100 minutes.
May 4, 2005
Lobs nothing but clichés.
October 24, 2004
Wimbledon ends up playing on wet clay...
October 11, 2004
As predictable and impotent as a John McEnroe outburst.
October 10, 2004
No amount of charm on the part of the stars can overcome the pall of generic conventions used in such a rote manner.
October 5, 2004
Ably, consistently directed and featuring attractive, likeable leads, yet also still so formulaic and quirk-free as to lull you into a stupor.
September 28, 2004
Trails some way behind the class of its predecessors, with a trailer that makes it look a lot funnier than it really is.

The leads' good performances are sabotaged by a script that lacks the wit and spark of Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral.

As predictable as the comfortable whoosh you get when you open a new can of tennis balls.
September 22, 2004
So determined to be ordinary that it's virtually invisible
September 20, 2004
[A] reluctant thumbs down.
September 20, 2004
Unless you're a tennis fan, this flick is about as fun as sitting through a movie about the 1980s arcade game Pong.
September 17, 2004
The generic parallel plots of sports-movie suspense and falling-in-love sap squeeze stars Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst together like so much peanut butter and jelly.
September 17, 2004
Wimbledon is like a tennis match played with wet balls and wooden racquets - soggy and stiff.
September 17, 2004
It's as though the filmmakers were wary of making Kirsten Dunst's character too unlikable and so tell us she's this or that rather than showing us.
September 17, 2004
The camera cuts back to Peter, wiping his brow as he observes, "Sport is cruel."
