Theatrical Release: March 25, 2005
DVD Release: March 25, 2005


Peter Colt (Bettany) is an unlucky guy, scoring “love” both professionally and personally. Seeded near the bottom of the world tennis ranks, he manages to score a wild card, allowing him to play in the prestigious Wimbledon tournament. There, he meets and falls in love with American tennis star Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst). Fueled by a mixture of his newfound luck, love and on-court prowess, Peter works his way up the ranks of the tournament players and actually stands a chance of fulfilling his lifelong dream of winning the men’s singles title – if his luck can just hold out.

Dove Review

This was a really interesting movie. There’s a man whose whole life has been playing tennis but he is now faced with the fact that his career may be over. Even his own brother is betting against him in his matches. But he gets a wild card and he is able to play in Wimbledon. There’s a woman whose whole life has been playing tennis, and the only one harder on her than her dad is herself. She is ranked high and is expected to win Wimbledon. The two meet and they start to fall in love. But the love they have for each other takes their focus off of their game. Lizzie’s dad tries to make the two stay apart for the sake of his daughter’s game and her career. Peter can’t stop thinking about being with Lizzie and it messes up his game. But the two finally figure out what’s important and they help each other with their lives, not just their game.
