4.0 from 0 reviews

Harmlessly predictable romantic comedy set in the tennis world, where weary 30-something Brit Peter Colt (Bettany) is coming to the end of his career with his final Wimbledon tournament. He meets cute with aggressive American super-player Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst), who's managed by her control-freak dad, Dennis (Neill). Lizzie's up for a little serve-and-volley and Peter suddenly finds his game (not to mention his love life) reinvigorated. Suddenly, he's a contender! But Lizzie is having second thoughts when love interferes with her concentration. After all, love in tennis is a big zero. Bettany is all self-deprecating charm while Dunst manages to be both smug and vulnerable.
