A game for the ages!

"They could theoretically play forever, which is scary for somebody like me who doesn't much like watching tennis."

Jake Szymanski's 7 Days in Hell is a spoof of sport documentary films similar in style to the 30 For 30 ESPN series. This hilarious 40 minute short written by Murray Miller, stars Andy Samberg and Kit Harington as two famous tennis players who made history when their Wimbledon match lasted seven days. Since the film is made in documentary style format we get fun interviews from the likes of Serena Williams, David Copperfield, and John McEnroe among others. Samberg plays Aaron Williams, a wild athlete who was raised by the Williams' family (A racial reversal of The Blind Side as Serena jokingly claims). Despite his wild behavior and crazy hair he quickly climbed the tennis ranks. However when he was about to reach the pinnacle of his career, a crazy incident during a final match forced him to abandon tennis and retrieve to Sweden. During his absence, a new star arose: Charles Poole (Kit Harrington),a well mannered mama's boy British player who is not too bright. During an interview he claimed to be the best tennis player of all time and that is what sparked Williams to want to return. Upon his comeback, the two face off in court during the first round of Wimbledon and what ensues is simply hilarious.

Sport fans everywhere will have a great time with this short spoof documentary full of silly and witty humor. It is absurd and overly raunchy so the humor might not work for everyone. We all know what Samberg is capable of, so Harrington is the one who truly surprises here with his comedy. Williams reminded me of a young Agassi and of course they went over the top with this character. The side-stories that at times seem to be getting off track work to the film's advantage. They include animated scenes in Swedish prisons and a short bio of a famous jury cartoonist. The producers knew exactly how far they could go with this premise and at 40 minutes they seemed to reach the perfect running time before the joke ran out of steam. It would've been a mistake to make this a full length feature film.

Game set and match

7 days in Hell is a sports mockumentary from HBO about a fictional account of the world's longest tennis match, which took place in the summer of 2001 and lasted for seven days. The match was between Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) the Andre Agassi lookalike with a John McEnroe temperament who is also the adopted brother of Venus & Serena Williams and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) the pride of Britain who is as dumb as he looks.

The narrator, Jon Hamm gets very dramatic with the biographies of the two players and creating tension where none exists. The short film also has real life celebrities from Serena Williams, John McEnroe, Chris Evert and at one point David Copperfield with some magic.

Its refreshing silly take on the pomposity of tennis and court rivalries. Here at one point the Queen gets involved in putting pressure on Poole to win Wimbledon for Britain and thus heaping more pressure on the vulnerable simpleton.

Some of the humour is a bit hit and miss, its probably overlong as it feels like a long comedy sketch with a big budget and star cameos that eventually runs out of gas. There is also a bit of smut here and there which kind of reminded me of a British orientated comedy than a US one.

great fun

It's a fake documentary of a 2001 Wimbledon tennis match between Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) which lasted 7 days. Aaron grew up in a reverse Blind Side situation with the Serena Williams' family. Charles is one of dimmest people around with mommy issues.

Samberg is great and completely within his element. It would be nice to have an equal for his counterpart. Harington is a solid dramatic leading man but his comedic skills are not sharpened. There are ways to play a ridiculous idiot but he's falling a bit flat. The material is full of hilarities. It's only forty three minutes which gives it a weirdly shorten feel. This is great unusual fun.
