About the Movie
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
Fresh: One of those nicely grooved pitches with which even a novice ought to be able to connect.
Rotten: The Farrellys, New Englanders by birth, love the Red Sox so much that they forgive their lead character a multitude of sins that, in any of their other movies, they'd be too gentlemanly (and too humane) to ever allow.
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.
I'm in love with Jimmy Fallon!
I love Jimmy Fallon, anything with him is pretty much hillarious. But it's hard to find good movies that he has done. This is a classic Fallon greatness!!!! Rent it for sure!
I love this movie! I have watched it so many times. It's one of those movies that you can sit and watch or just have on in the background. It's just the right amount of chick flick without being overly sappy.
