    Wimbledon - 9/17



    Release Date: 9/17/2004 Romantic Comedy, Sports Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hr 40 mins


    From Hollywood.com

    Peter Colt is an unlucky guy, scoring "love" both professionally and personally. Seeded near the bottom of the world tennis ranks, he manages to score a wild card, allowing him to play in the prestigious Wimbledon tournament. There, he meets and falls in love with American tennis star Lizzie Bradbury. Fueled by a mixture of his newfound luck, love and on-court prowess, Peter works his way up the ranks of the tournament players and actually stands a chance of fulfilling his lifelong dream of winning the men's singles title--if his luck can just hold out.
    Cast: Kirsten Dunst , Paul Bettany , Austin Nichols , James McAvoy

    It's just cruel to make a movie about a Brit getting to the latter stages of Wimbledon.

    I'm not sure about this one.
    I like Paul Bettany, but he and Dunst don't seem to have the makings of a good romantic comedy couple.

    That's so true, no wonder Tim Henman wasn't one of the players at the premiere!

    I agree. They lack chemistry. I'm not sure if I'd watch the movie.

    I saw this one yesterday. The age disparity between the two is pretty glaring ( I know, I know, that there are all these movies where old men end up with young women but Kirsten Dunst still looks very young, face-wise and I found it a bit of a stumbling block). Their chemistry/story was not bad - not great but not a bad movie. Way to hedge my compliments huh?

    Not to sound like an ass, but the commercials scream "chick flick" to me.

    well, yeah, somewhat. but Paul is so funny in it. I just love him.
    It was somewhat more than a 'chick flick', and I enjoyed it.

    But its no Bruce Willis movie.

    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.
