I thought this was a COMEDY!
23 December 1998 | by emmSee all my reviews

I took a sharp glance at the tape box front cover for this film, which featured illustrations of gals on the beach. Funny thing is, stuff sells! And even if SPRING FEVER (1981) didn't turn out like another sleazy bimbo comedy, it occasionally delivered a few gags. This is a drama about hard times in and out of the women's tennis finals. There are some levels of seriousness that builds up along with the story. Not what you'd expect when checking this out at first, but then again, you might as well press "FAST FORWARD" until you find any greater interest with the movie. Sad to say, it's not interesting.
