As a lifelong Red Sox fan, it’s difficult not to appreciate Fever Pitch, the 2005 Farrelly Brothers comedy. Sure, some of the jokes falter and the film pales in comparison to some of the early Farrelly productions, but this was a movie made about diehard Red Sox fans who had watched their team lose time and time again. And when the movie was being filmed, the Sox were in the process of breaking an 87-year losing streak and winning a long-awaited World Series.
Loosely adapted from a Nick Hornby novel, the film focuses on a boy, a girl and the greatest baseball team in the world. Jimmy Fallon is the main character whose relationship with Drew Barrymore suffers during baseball season. It’s not a great film, but it’s a solid one – especially for baseball fans and those looking for a sweet but often funny romantic comedy.
