What is “Challengers” about?

“Challengers” centers on Tashi Duncan (Zendaya), a former tennis prodigy whose career is seemingly ended after a bad injury to her knee. From there, she pivots into coaching, aiming to help her husband (Faist) snap a losing streak.

Per the official logline of the film: Tashi’s strategy for her husband’s redemption takes a surprising turn when he must face off against the washed-up Patrick (Josh O’Connor) — his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend. As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win.

    Don’t buy into the hype (or the suggestive threesome promo’s). There is no 3-way other than 2 guys kissing.
    Thought I was trapped in a Lifetime Channel teen romance flick.
    This film is mediocre at best.
