Wimbledon DVD Review

Wimbledon DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The newest romantic comedy for 2004 from Universal Pictures, Wimbledon, stars Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany and is all about the world famous tennis tournament.

If you're in the mood for a romantic comedy this fall, then maybe Wimbledon is the movie for you. Starring Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany, this flick is about a washed-up tennis player who gets one last shot at playing at Wimbledon. I know, you're thinking, 'Why would I want to watch a movie about tennis?' Well, check out Kidzworld's review to find out!

Wimbledon - Where Dreams Come True

Peter Colt is ranked 119th in the world of tennis. Once an athlete that could compete with the best, at 31, Peter's kind of lost his hunger for the game. But, when he gets a wildcard spot at Wimbledon, he decides to play the tournament, but retire from the game, right after. Peter (and the rest of the world) expects that he'll be eliminated in the first round - but his luck changes when he meets American tennis superstar, Lizzie Bradbury. She's young, she's feisty and she has a thing for Peter! Peter suddenly has some fire back in his serve... but is his new found love for Lizzie enough to keep him playing in top form? (You'll have to watch the movie to find out!)

Wimbledon - Serving Up Some Love

There's just something about a British accent that gets your heart fluttering, and there are plenty of accents in this film. Paul Bettany is kind of bumbling and awkward in his attempts to win Kirsten Dunst over (like a school boy going in for his first kiss), that it's hard not to root for him. There's plenty of breath-taking scenery and enough quick wit to keep you giggling. Wimbledon also keeps you on your toes with all of its suspenseful sports moments. Who knew tennis could be so exciting?

Wimbledon - Double Fault

The biggest problem with Wimbledon is that it's a bit too predictable. There are no real good twists, but all of the characters in the movie are really likable, so the predictability factor won't really matter that much.

Wimbledon - DVD Features

On the Wimbldon DVD there are some cute featurettes about how the movie was made, and how the special effects in the movie were created. You might not think that a sports movie would have too many special effects, but this cool featurette shows you that effects are used in all sorts of movies - not just action flicks. Hear commentary from cutie Paul Bettany and the director, Richard Loncraine. If you're into tennis, or just a fan of Kirsten Dunst, this is a great DVD to pick up.

    Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
