Sports comedies aren’t always the easiest thing to pull off, but when done right, the results can be pretty enjoyable. Case in point: Jay Karas’ Break Point, a new film revolving around tennis and in particular, “two estranged brothers who reunite to make an improbable run at a grand slam tournament.”
Despite being a bit too predictable and not really breaking the mould, the flick is breezy, harmless and full of heart, offering up an amusing watch with some strong performances from the cast and a handful of genuinely hilarious moments.
Our very own Alexander Lowe reviewed it back at SXSW and had the following to say:
Thanks to witty writing and excellent performances, Break Point turns out to be one of the funniest sports comedies that we’ve seen in years.
A few weeks back at the film’s LA press day, we caught up with stars David Walton and Jeremy Sisto for an exclusive interview. Eager to talk about their hilarious new movie, we discussed what it was like working with young actors, the dynamic between the characters, having J.K. Simmons play the father and more.
Check out what they had to say in the video above and be sure to catch Break Point as it’s now playing in theatres.
