(es) wrote: Absolutely an innocent movie !!
(au) wrote: Good film, but a bit too long. 4 stars if they would've cut out 15-20 minutes.
(it) wrote: Good special effects and decent action in this movie. Love the fact that Wolfhound has a pet bat. The storyline is a bit of a regurgitation of past movies such as Conan the Barbarian but very enjoyable to watch. Oksana Akinshina looked amazing in this movie.
(kr) wrote: Terrible movie, but I love it anyway. I'm such a sucker for schmaltzy Christmas movies.
(mx) wrote: one sequel that's just as funny as the first pic
(kr) wrote: This and THE LONGEST YARD are defenitely, in my opinion, the BEST FOOTBALL MOVIES around, actually the one GOOD FOOTBALL MOVIES AROUND! Nick Nolte was just starting to come into his own with this movie and the remaining cast is pretty DAMN GOOD ALSO, especially Charles Durning. I take it back, SEMI - TOUGH is pretty Damn Good Also!
(de) wrote: An okay quirky romantic comedy, with the very likable leads of Colin Hanks and Rachel Blanchard.The film tries really hard to be an idiosyncratic indie and overshoots. Trying too hard is never cool. It's almost like: "Hey, I'm a quirky indie film, love me!"Overall, it's a one-trick pony that is lucky enough to have interesting characters.

As a big fan of both BRIDGET JONES' DIARY and NOTTING HILL I suspected the decision would mean few hours of precious sleep before stumbling out of the house on the way to work this morning. Yep, I sat their engrossed in the unfolding drama, and yes it meant I was still happily glued to the movie as my alarm clock slid past 2 a.m., but this movie not only met my expectations but exceeded them in all its free-spirited warm fuzzies. The story has been done before - boy meets girl, girls father attempts to keep them apart, boy loses girl and then well - you need to watch the movie for that answer. However this movie is a winner because the backdrop (Wimbledon) provides for some nerve wrenching moments and tension and the other movies of this ilk did not star Paul Bettany (the same actor who proved great comic timing in A KNIGHT'S TALE) and Kirsten Dunst. Dunst has never particularly impressed me before and I never found her terribly attractive, yet she looks stunningly gorgeous in this movie and plays her part of the young tennis protg to perfection. Bettany plays the part of a has-been tennis player named Peter Colt who (after being ranked #11 in the world some years before) wins a wildcard spot at Wimbledon which he accepts as a last hurrah before taking on the tennis pro position at a snooty English social club. There he meets up with aspiring young tennis star Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst) who is competing in her first Wimbledon under the watchful eye of her father (played by Sam Neill sporting a horrible American accent). Following a mix up over rooms and some other comic misadventures the two gradually fall in love (although neither seems ready to admit it) and as Colt's game improves and he advances further into the tournament, Lizzie's game deteriorates. I'm not sure if I bought Bettany and Dunst as a couple, the two certainly have a chemistry and Bettany is his usual charming self, but something about it didn't quite gel for me. But this is a minor quibble because everything else works perfectly and I don't think I have ever seen tennis portrayed so dramatically on screen. The movie also features a number of tennis greats in front of the camera (including Chris Evert and John McEnroe) to add a further sense pf realism to the proceedings.
