David here: This is a guest post from one of my frequent readers:
I would like to propose a new award, perhaps given out on the JimDandy blog,
that celebrates bad tennis in movies. I would propose that we call it the
"Terry Thomas Hard Cheese Award". My inspiration for this award comes from watching "Bridesmaids" which portrayed
a vicious women's doubles match. Where a player gets tubed maybe one a season this
match depicted four or 5 tubings of the gals boobs. The strokes were awful to watch.
Indeed, i challenge you to find a worse tennis scene in the movies, excluding those
with Dick Van Patten including the tv series "8 is enough".
Here is the clip that helped to inspire the Terry Thomas Hard Cheese Award, starring
non other than Terry Thomas in "School for Scoundrels"
The phones are open and operators are standing by. Bad tennis in movies or tv. Let's
here what both of you have to say.
