Overview

Fever Pitch

Nick Hornby's acclaimed memoir about one man's struggle to balance his love of a woman and his love for soccer was the basis of a well-reviewed British film in 1997, and now gets a Americanized rewrite with this picture, in which the game is changed from soccer to baseball. Ben (Jimmy Fallon) is a high-school teacher who meets Lindsay (Drew Barrymore), who has a successful career in business. Ben and Lindsay don't appear to have much in common on the surface, but they hit it off and are soon involved in a serious romance. But when spring rolls around, Lindsay becomes aware of the true love of Ben's life -- the Boston Red Sox. Despite the team's lamentable record, Ben has been a fiercely loyal Red Sox fan since childhood, and Lindsay finds it hard to compete with his passion for baseball, while Ben is forced to choose between the obsessions of his youth and the enthusiasms of a responsible adult. Fever Pitch was shot in part in Boston during the 2004 baseball season, which to the surprise of the filmmakers saw the Red Sox winning baseball's world series for the first time since 1918.

I LOVE this movie, it's hilarious and it's a romance, my two favorite mixes. They couldn't have made this movie at any better time, with the world series last year and everything. It has so much great baseball footage and it's sweet. I ADORE this movie. If you a fan of the red sox and you like romances watch this movie.

this movie is one of the best. as i am a red sox fan growing up in boston right now, i enjoyed and understood this movie more than someone from Minnisota would, but it was still excellent. you have to watch it!!!!!

This is absolutely the most funny, sweet, and original romantic comedy since "Sleepless in Seattle", and I laughed until I cried. Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon have great chemistry, and they should make more movies together. I loved it! I hope to own the new special edition DVD one day.

This is a great "date" movie! You guys will like it as much as us women. It has laughs, romance, baseball, and Johnny Damon!! A great way to revisit the 2004 Red Sox season through their World Series victory. It has some thoughtful moments as well as being very funny. This is the best "romantic comedy" I've seen, but then I usually avoid such movies so I don't have much to compare it with.
