Are you going to watch "Wimbledon - the movie"?

"It must be a comedy if a British player is winning at Wimbledon"
quoted from Serena at Wimbledon this year.
I dont think I'll be watching it though, are you going to be watching it?

If only they'd chosen George and I to star in it. It would've been a sure fire Oscar epic.

I love Kirsten Dunst and I love tennis so I'd probably see it.

Yes. Hoping to arrange a reunion of the group of people I go to watch tennis with to go and see it in Wimbledon; it should be good for a laugh!

I saw a screening of this in NYC last weekend. A friend of mine got me in

It was a cute, fun, romantic comedy with tennis thrown in. I approved. If you don't hate Romantic comedies, I say you should go out and see it.

It seems a little too chick-flicky and I hate Kirsten...but I'll prolly see it just to laugh at the amount of skill the "pros" have.

If the lead dame doesn't do a couple of numbers or end up in the gas chamber, I don't watch.

There were a few things in the movie that would like, absolutely never happen (ie: playing a mens semifinal on an outer court at the same time as the womens semi on center, the grass still being all green and beautiful for the finals)... but overall, they didn't do anything too ridiculous with the tennis bit. Well, aside from a Brit nobody doing well at Wimbledon, of course

It's really not as bad as I thought it would be!
