  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Once a rising-star, Peter Colt (Bettany) has never made it to the top. But while preparing to play at the famous "Wimbledon" he meets and falls in love with hot-shot player Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst). With Lizzie on his side and "love" in the air, Peter suddenly discovers that he's in top form and his game has improved so much that he just may have a shot at winning. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits pleasing image quality throughout. Colors are richly saturated and well-balanced, with fleshtones often appearing quite natural (though somewhat orange on occasion), and deep blacks. There is often a warm glow about the picture. Images are sharp and detailed, with satisfying textures and definition, though Paul Bettany
