High school teacher Ben Wrightman (Jimmy Fallon) is a good catch. He's charming, funny and great with kids. When he meets Lindsey Meeks (Drew Barrymore), an ambitious business consultant whose spirit is as luminous as her beauty, their attraction is immediate. Sure, they have their differences. She's a workaholic; he loves his summers off. He lives and breathes the Red Sox; she doesn't know Carl Yastrzemski from Johnny Damon. But true love overcomes all...at least until Red Sox spring training rolls around. As Ben's beloved Bosox launch one of the most incredible seasons in baseball history, Ben and Lindsey must decide if they, as a couple, will strike out or fight to keep love alive through extra innings.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's sad to watch the kingpins of gross-out try to dial down to cute. Swung at and missed.
Fresh: One of those nicely grooved pitches with which even a novice ought to be able to connect.
Fresh: Stripped of almost all the brothers' usual crudeness, Fever Pitch proves what we've suspected all along: That beneath the gross-out gags and freak-show humor, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are just a couple of lovable romantics.
Fresh: The film turns out to be a substantial pleasure as the spirit of the Sox shines through.

So Good. So Good. So Good!
Fever Pitch shows the life of Ben, a teacher in Boston who has season tickets to the Red Sox. Then, he meets Lindsay, and they start to fall in love. This shows the historic 2004 season of the Red Sox when they reversed the curse. I loved this movie.
