In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women's world champion Billie Jean King and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

Possible Spoilers:
It was alright. I just wish there was more focus on the politics behind the match and more on what Billie Jean fought against, rather than sole focus on the romantic relationships. She accomplished a lot more than that and I wish that was shown in the movie rather than just mentioned in the footnotes at the end. I wanted to see more of the relationship between her and John Wooden rather than it being placed in the background. And they really could have gotten stunt doubles to make the tennis match in the end more tense and exciting. In all, this movie could have been much better than it is.
