Owen "Game Set" Match is one of the top tennis pros in town, employed by the prestigious Fountain Club, with sun-bleached hair, gimp knees, and tan lines that make the women swoon. But when a history of bad decisions finally catches up to him, he's forced to pick up the pieces of his faltering career at the local YMCA club, where dysfunction is the norm. At the Y, a gang of culturally diverse, potentially psychotic, ADHD, OCD, and potentially half-special pros eagerly await Owen's tutelage. Owen immediately takes a liking to his new boss, Sherry, and befriends her son Jake in an attempt to hook up with the mother. But can Owen find meaning in life in the most unlikely of places? Can T-Shirts really talk? How many hard-boiled eggs can a tennis pro eat? Can an arm really die? What's it like to crap in a van with no windows? Owen reunites with his crazy high school coach, bringing inspiration and folly to the Y, sparking a series of showdowns, Chinese buffet throw-downs, and borderline ... Written by Anonymous

Not Close To An Ace Service Game
10 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

A rom-com sports movie that tries to be different, but ends up really not connecting the shots. While the movie for the most part has a slightly different and uplifting tone and script, it is tremendously let down by the poor tennis that is supposedly the primary backdrop of this movie. Many of the subplots don't get sufficient attention and development such as the tennis manager's son's social development and relationship with a girl he likes. The title of the movie (2nd Serve) is perhaps one of the best of elements of the whole movie. Probably one needs to stick with and look out for such sports movies as The Cutting Edge (1992) that was able to, at least, adequately portray a pseudo-ice skating presentation as well as offer a much more intense and extended focus on the romance angle and drama.
