Well, it's one of these romantic comedies you can watch with your girlfriend, it's not bad but it's not the best either...

There is some tennis action (with a computer tennis ball), it's not too realistic (some points are just too even Roger Federer couldn't reach such balls), and also the preparation for the matches isn't exactly a professional one, but all that taken aside, it's not so bad... Kirsten Dunst is and the Paul Bettany guy is quite funny! At least an English movie without Hugh Grant

I would say it is worth seeing, it shows Wimbledon quite a bit and Brighton (near where i live!) As said it is not the best but the actors and actresses are good!

I haven't seen it. Wanted to but most of my friends said it wasn't worth to watch...dunno if they're still showing it.



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love


A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep

I just saw it!!

I loved it lol But then again, I love romantic comedies But romantic comedies + tennis is wonderful for me And plenty of cute guys and girls!! I even recognized Alicia Molik playing a backhand when they showed an alround view of Wimbledon!

Worth to see I don't know anyone who didn't like it!

Watch a movie titled 'Dick'. Kirsten Dunst stars in this, and it's way superior.

Make no mistake, it's a girlie movie first which just happens to have a tennis theme. Don't expect it to be realistic about tennis, just like all girlie movies aren't realistic.

I disagree. I know plenty about tennis and I enjoyed it. The problem is going in with that attitude. Don't expect it to be "realistic' in terms of tennis. Appreciate it for what it is - a MOVIE. And not exactly the best movie of all time at that. Go in with my attitude and you'll like it, so long as you don't mind romantic comedies

In fact, if you don't know shit about tennis, you wouldn't get half the tennis references and jokes that they pop.
