Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All in all, it's rather pleasant, but nothing else."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"[A] reluctant thumbs down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Works better as a sports movie than a love match."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"You aren't likely to see a film with more warmth and good humor anytime soon, or one that does more to give feel good filmmaking a good name."
‑ Rick Kisonak, Film Threat
"Bettany and Dunst make a cute couple that is as fiercely competitive in their love lives as they are on the court."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"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."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), Houston Chronicle
"Slick, satisfying entertainment."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"An enjoyable little crowd-pleaser with likable leads and a few good laughs."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"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?"
‑ Uri Lessing, www.kcactive.com
"Trillada? Relativamente Complaciente? Absolutamente Buena? Podr vivir sin verla. Pero definitivamente si la ve... saldr gratamente complacido."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"A pleasant enough entertainment at a time when movies either pleasant or entertaining are in short supply."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"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."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The story plays out predictably with a happy ending -- think The Natural on Wimbledon's Centre Court -- and all in all, it's a decent romantic comedy."
‑ Mark Moring, Christianity Today
"Lobs nothing but clichés."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Wimbledon ends up playing on wet clay..."
‑ Tony Toscano, Talking Pictures (U.S.)
