Movie Info

Peter Colt 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. 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.

Audience Reviews for Wimbledon

  • Mar 27, 2013
    Charming and funny, Wimbledon is a delightful romantic comedy that's inspirational. During his final Wimbledon tournament Peter Colt meets a fellow tennis star on the women's circuit that helps him to regain his competitive edge. Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany lead the cast and give great performances. The two have good chemistry together and a feel for this type of comedy. However, there are some superfluous subplots that break-up the momentum of the film. Wimbledon has some flaws, but overall it's a heartwarming and entertaining film.
