Today’s Double Feature: Go and Wimbledon

December 11th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Hulu continues its string of double features with Go and Wimbledon today. These Hulu for the Holidays picks are our way of giving you a chance to “get away from it all” during the holiday festivities.

For grocery store cashiers Ronna and Simon, it will be a night unlike any other. From attempted drug busts and car wrecks to strip clubs and shootings, the kids featured in Go attract a lot trouble. Ronna (Sarah Polley) just wants some rent money, so when two guys (Party of Five‘s Scott Wolf and Action‘s Jay Mohr) approach her looking to score some ecstasy, she’s willing to oblige — and even use her best friend, Claire (Katie Holmes), as collateral to make the score. And from there, it’s all downhill. There’s the undercover cop (Prison Break‘s William Fitchner) who’s out to make a bust, an angry drug dealer, and a little problem with a Miata at a Christmas Eve rave. Meanwhile, Simon (Desmond Askew) is having a boys-gone-wild weekend in Las Vegas, where he runs into trouble in the back room of a strip club. And while the film seems to take more than a few cues from Pulp Fiction, director Doug Liman (Swingers) ensures that it strikes a chord with a Gen X point of view.

Today’s second feature, Wimbledon, is a lighthearted look at love on and off the grassy courts. Kirsten Dunst stars as a bad-girl tennis superstar; Paul Bettany is a has-been tennis pro taking one last swing at Wimbledon. Can their romance survive the competition? Watch and see.

Hulu for the Holidays is back on Monday with a classic animation block. We’ll take you from a junkyard to Eternia and on to Frostbite Falls for some classic cartoons from our youth.
