It feels authentic to the era. The performances are excellent, particularly the two leads. Stone and Carell are proving to be some of the finest character actors working.

Predictable and pretentious. Sarah Silverman is especially bad.

Aside for too much time spent on the relationship between Billie Jean and her lesbian lover, an overall well done movie which I enjoyed. The tennis seemed on the slow side compared to the present day level of top women players but still good enough. NIce that there was no bad language , at least that I could recall. Emma Stone and Steve Carell were good in their roles. Enough funny moments. I watched the original match back in 1973 and was pulling for Bobby Riggs. In retrospect ,pleased that Billie Jean won , especially after what she and the other women players went through.

Very well done-the main theme was about Billie Jean fighting for equality (equal pay for women in the tennis world)-no idea why it got classified as a comedy as it definitely wasn’t-it was based quite factually on a true story and portrayed it very well I thought

3.5 out of 5 I enjoyed this movie. I thought there was a great deal of depth and character to it. Emma Stone, Steve Carell and Bill Pulman were excellent--as was Elizabeth Shue. These times did exist and still do, in some racist, sexist circles. A little slow at the beginning, but hang in there. Really good writing!

Distorted history. We really are in Orwellian times. Anyone who lived through those times will not want to bother. I thought I was watching a parallel universe unfolding. If not for the wardrobe, and the vehicles, I would have thought this was another planet.

Should be an Oscar contender for both actors Steve Carell and Emma Stone!

Took a long time to actually get to the match. A lot of backstory about BJK so if that's what you are looking for then it'll be great for you

Two of today's sexiest performers in a very sexy movie. 5/5

3 1/2 stars “The Battle of the Sexes”, is based on the true story of the tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billy Jean King. Excellent acting by Emma Stone (Billy Jean), Steve Carell (Boby Riggs), and supporting cast including Sarah Silverman (Gladys Heldman). It is incredible how much Emma Stone and Steve Carell actually look like the real characters. This movie is really about women’s rights and equality. Women had to work hard to be taken seriously in the early 1970’s. Despite being labelled a feminist, it is interesting to note that King, was Billy Jean’s married name. During this time in her life, she struggled with her sexuality, fully aware that homosexuality was not accepted by society. Although thoroughly entertaining and enlightening, the one major weakness of the film is that it never truly delves deep inside the characters. We do get a sense of some of the struggles they faced and how image and stereotyping were the norm. The side story of her arch nemesis, Margaret Court is only touched upon but can be a film unto itself. She was the true female tennis champion of her time, but lost against Bobby Riggs. Billy Jean was a fiercely driven person who took up the challenge. While Bobby Riggs was an overly confident, entertainer/gambling buffoon and up until this match, was lucky.
