''Fever Pitch'' is a wonderful romantic comedy. The cast is superb, and the intensive devotion of British football (i.e. soccer) fans to their favorite teams is incredible. Colin Firth is such an amazing actor. He won our hearts as the aloof but passionate aristocrat ''Mr. Darcy'' in the brilliant BBC/A&E ''Pride & Prejudice.'' In ''Fever Pitch'', Firth's protrayal of the passionate Arsenal fan ''Paul Ashworth'' is so convincing. He is fabulous!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Colin Firth is truly fabulous! He is in top form as the football (soccer) obssessed fan and dedicated teacher. He looks rumpled and boyish, and is definitely THE best buddy to go to the ballgames with! The movie is set in 1989 (with flashbacks to Paul Ashworth's childhood). Even though it is mainly about English football (Paul's favorite team Arsenal's incredible season), devotees of any sports would enjoy the film. Get the DVD version (for English subtitles to understand some of the English slangs!) Based on Nick Hornby's bestseller, but the film is much better as one is not overwhelmed by football statistics, and is treated to a sweet love story. One complain: The artwork on the US version features a nude woman with a pair of soccer cleats. The ''R'' rating is for language. The kissing is very modest, and they do talk in bed, but there is absolutely no graphic bedroom scenes like many other ''R'' rated movies. The British release features a ''Battle of the Sexes'' type photo of Colin Firth (''Paul'') and Ruth Gemmell (''Sara''), which is more true to the romantic spirit of the movie. Hard to find in rental stores. Worth buying!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
