Did you see the preview? Great... you saw the movie. Save yourself the $9.

(basically, this was the most predictable movie ever. ) And I am a big fan of both Dunst and Bettany.... not the greatest work for either of them.

I heard of it a long time ago and I thought Paul would be a awful actor in this kind of Genre! I mean C'mon he is ugly! Jeez What kind of person would see this movie.

It was a cute movie. Of course it was predictable, aren't all romantic comedies? If you're a complete sap like me, you'll probably enjoy it.

Paul Bettany is not ugly.
I want to see it, it looks cute.

I really enjoyed this movie. I'd definitely buy it when it comes out. It was different than what I expected. The tennis was realistic enough...very nice. It's a very charming film.

I think this looks like an okay movie. I don't think I'll go see it though.

Very predictable, chick flick. Amaze the girls.

i would only watch it for the tennis aspect, and then, i'd probably just criticize everything.

i'm not a chick flick kind of person. but my boyfriend is... which seems a bit backwards. oh well.

I really, really enjoyed it being a bit of a tennis/Wimbledon nut. I loved the way I felt like I was back on the courts and watching the matches.
The film only had one major flaw. Kirsten Dunst. She was completely wrong for the part. The age difference, though part of the plot, began to feel illegal in a jailbait kinda way. She's dreadful. She *almost* ruined the film, but Paul Beattany (sigh) came along and saved the day.

Yes, the movie was predictable, but I still thought it was cute. I liked Paul Bettany, and I thought the tennis parts were exciting too.

An amusing and pleasant lightweight romantic comedy

I'm certainly not a tennis fan, but I still really enjoyed it. It made me want to go out and play tennis. I thought Bettany and Dunst were cute together. (I don't think Paul is ugly either) It was cheesy, but didn't make you squirm from it, so I liked it a lot. It was funnier than I thought it would be too.

I thought the movie was good. Not how I expected it to be, but that was a good thing!

"Did you see the preview? Great... you saw the movie. Save yourself the $9."

Xfreek pretty much nailed it. There was nothing in this movie that you didn't get from the preview. I enjoy Bettany normally, but he didn't really do anything outstanding in this movie. Plus, there's my usual pet-peeve with sports movies: The actors look so incredibly awkward trying to play the sport.

Forget the awkwardness of the actors trying to play the sport. I'd rather watch Kirsten Dunst struggle to play tennis rather than watch Anna Kournikova struggle to act.

I also like how they brought the friendship aspect into it with that other guy. My best friend and I play tennis all the time when we get the chance. It's tough to get that killer instinct when you're playing someone you know like the back of your hand.

Two thumbs up from me on this one.
