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.

I mean, you're forcing me to choose between two of my greatest loves: Harry Potter and Star Wars.  BUT... if I  had  to choose one **drum roll** I would have to say...Rogue One. *cringes away from angry mob of Potterheads* yeah, I know. Rogue One was really freaking sad and how could I not love the ever adorable Newt Scamander. I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult this choice was. But Rogue One's plot..and how well it connected with the prequels and the original trilogy-that was awesome, and thus it wins by a miniscule margin :P I will say that Fantastic Beasts is a much more light-hearted film and ergo a film I'd likely watch more, especially since Rogue One is right before A New Hope which would probably cause me to go on a Star Wars Movie binge. Not that Fantastic Beasts wouldn't cause me to go on a HP binge. I mean, given the choice between the two on TV I'd prob chose Fantastic Beasts but I still think Rogue One is the better made film, for lack of a better phrase. exactly mate.
