Summary: Directed by Richard Loncraine, Wimbledon follows the plight of aspiring tennis-star Peter Colt (Paul Bettany), whose bad luck seems to manifest itself just about everywhere. Professionally, Peter is near the very bottom of the world tennis ranks, and personally, he can't find love despite his best efforts to do so. In a rare turn of events, however, Peter is chosen as a wildcard to play at Wimbledon, the tennis world's most prestigious competition. While there, he meets American tennis ingénue Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst), and his confidence on the court and off improves tenfold as he falls further in love with her. Driven by his newfound luck, Peter climbs to the top of the tournament players at record speed, until he actually has a fighting chance of winning the men's singles title -- the question is whether or not his good fortune will hold out long enough for him to get the trophy. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Karl Williams

An underrated romantic comedy that triumphs thanks to the power of its canny casting and a script that, while leaning too heavily on the work of Richard Curtis for inspiration, nevertheless succeeds in creating tension, humor, and what the screenwriting gurus call "rooting interest." Director Richard Loncraine is to be congratulated for letting the genuine chemistry between leads Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst play itself out onscreen. The scenes that work best are those that feature the lovers lobbing verbal volleys back and forth, Tracy-and-Hepburn style; they prove what Curtis' Notting Hill (1999) and Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) already taught us: there are few situations better designed to inspire dazzling dialogue than a stubborn, obsessive American arguing with a witty, fatalistic Brit. Meanwhile, the plot point-driven, "rom-com" cliches, such as her possessive father (Sam Neill, trying to swap his inherent affability for a Machiavellian quality but instead ending up seeming just sort of cross) or her arrogant boyfriend, are instantly forgettable, and the filmmaker smartly minimizes their impact. It may be derivative, but Wimbledon (2004) is a grand slam. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
