Storyline

Tom's playing tennis, and Jerry is carrying his equipment for him. However, Tom's opponent, a cigar-smoking cat, is much better than Tom and is soon (literally) beating him soundly. Jerry comes to the rescue with a special "killer" tennis ball. But before long, everyone seems to be playing against everyone else. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Love Deuce
12 October 2008 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Tom attends a Tennis championship, with Jerry in tow as a ball boy (or mouse) of sorts. Cigar-smoking Butch is his rival, and is a much better player. When he realizes that Tom is out of his depth, Jerry manipulates the players into using increasingly deadly tricks against each other, without any kind of reaction from the viewing crowds.

There's enough visual humor in this one to make it worthwhile and it's a welcome break from the usual chase through the generic house. I just wish that the extent of the jokes went beyond the characters batting stuff at each other and tripping over the net.

Above average.
