Remarkable lookalike Emma Stone joins Steve Carell to recreate what may 
be history's most famous tennis match -- in 1972, between Billie Jean 
King and male chauvinist Bobby Riggs.  Surprisingly, the script mines 
BATTLE OF THE SEXES for a triple entendre deeper than the title brawl. 
Executed with amiable gusto, the movie will likely be most enjoyed by 
those who remember something of the actual flap.  Recommended.

Sir! Sir!
Can we do some tennis puns? Please sir?


Although it served up some reasonable efforts and I believe that it'll net
the producers a tidy profit, I'm just over movies about racketeers.
