Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Stars Freddie Prinze Jr. (strike one), features more male virgins trying to lose it (strike two) and disses the legendary baseball league in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, by filming this mess in North Carolina (strike three). – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 8, 2014

Rotten: The interplay of Ryan's professional and romantic challenges rings true, but unfortunately the writers pile on contrivances and needless distractions that seriously diminish the film's overall effect. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Aug 8, 2014

Rotten: Depending wholly upon the blinkered empathy of daydreamy teen viewers, a typical FPJ movie skims over character, plot, and dialogue. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Maybe the filmmakers figured that the audience for Summer Catch is too young to have seen Bull Durham. – Malcolm Ritter, Associated Press, Jun 14, 2013
