All in all, it's rather pleasant, but nothing else.
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.
October 1, 2004
A pleasant enough entertainment at a time when movies either pleasant or entertaining are in short supply.
September 23, 2004
Richard Loncraine's romantic fantasy, Wimbledon, is cruelly designed to make feeble-minded tennis fans go weak at the knees. As such, it works perfectly
September 21, 2004
A join-the-dots romantic comedy, Wimbledon is worth watching for the magnetism of Paul Bettany.
September 20, 2004
[A] reluctant thumbs down.

Slick, satisfying entertainment.
September 18, 2004
The kind of movie that allows the non-cynical movie-goer to sit back and relax in the presence of actors who work well with each other and a script whose familiarity is an asset.
September 17, 2004
The best thing about all of this is Bettany.
September 17, 2004
A curious hybrid of sports drama and romantic comedy, Wimbledon is a happy case of hitting the sweet spot with a good serve.

This is the part that will finally make the tall, freckled Bettany a star. He's exquisitely high-strung in a way that women will find madly attractive and men madly agreeable.
September 17, 2004
Beneath the surface, the film is an empty experience.
September 17, 2004
There's no hiding a hokey love story that undercuts the picture's compelling tennis scenes.
September 17, 2004
Not an ace, just a let, barely getting over the net to give its stars another serve and a chance to move into the next scene. But you won't mind watching them play out the point.
September 17, 2004
Though there is the novelty of racket action, all the film really amounts to is same story, different sport.
September 17, 2004
An ultra-predictable if essentially painless romantic comedy.
September 17, 2004
As a love story, Wimbledon is a washout. As a meditation on sports psychology, it might help improve your game.
September 17, 2004
The Bjorn Borg of romantic comedies: precise, good-looking, dependable and serviceable, if predictable.
