    Synopsis


    Battle of the Sexes
    This sports docudrama recreates the legendary 1973 "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). When the 55-year-old Riggs brags that he can beat any woman in the world on the tennis court, 29-year-old King, then the reigning champion, accepts his challenge. Their highly publicized match soon takes on a larger meaning as a milestone in the fight for gender equality. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming, and Bill Pullman co-star. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      A Really Well Done Look At A 70's Event

      Well done film. Very well acted - Steve Carell is especially good as Bobby Riggs. The film is engaging, funny, and moving in all the right spots. The "tolerance for all" message is laid on a bit thick. It's appropriate, just a little heavy handed at the end -- and the film offers no sympathy for BJK's supportive, loyal and cheated-on husband. But it's still a very good and effective movie, and a very accurate look back at the era.

      This movie covers the adult life of Billie Jean King. It shows what happened behind the scenes leading up to the tennis match she won against Bobbie Riggs who was the top male tennis player at that time. It seems realistic based on the fact that Billie Jean King consulted on the film. Emma Stone and Steve Carrell did a great job looking and acting like the main characters did in real life.

      From what i read, this movie was filmed in a soft focus format to replicate the way movies were in the 70's. Sadly, this was NOT a good idea as it looks really out of focus. Otherwise, the movie was decent.

      If you like/or don’t care for tennis but like a true male vs female competion, this is must see. The complex lives of two famous tennis stars who battle each other makes a superb movie.

      Both actors did a teeeerific job in portraing Bobby Riggs and Billy Jean King. Even though I knew the results, this movie showed much, much more that got me caught up in this wonderful movie

      I know the story of the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs match, and they got it right when they hired Emma Stone and Steve Carell to portray them. We enjoyed the movie very much.
