Fever Pitch

Way back when, M and I tried to go see Fever Pitch on opening weekend for his 30th birthday.  Silly us didn’t think that it would be sold out – we were wrong, and we saw Sin City instead.  Then a couple of weeks ago we found Fever Pitch on the super-cheap DVD shelf at Target and picked it up.

It’s definitely a sweet movie.  Not deep, not going to change the world, but sweet.  And something that every Red Sox fan should definitely see.  I love Jimmy Fallon, and loved him in this as well.  For some reason I kept seeing flashes of Gertie in Drew Barrymore, though – maybe because she played Lindsey as such a very young 30.  Even at work, where she was clearly doing Very Serious Stuff, she was all cutesy.  *shrug*

Oddly some of the last bits, the ALCS bits, were actually hard to watch.  I know why, of course – I associate that series very strong with the NICU.  (In between stuff like this, M and the other dads and the nurses were huddled around the computer at the end of the pod watching the live updating box scores  on ESPN.)

  1. The chemistry between Fallon and Barrymore makes this film so much better. I just wish there was so much more to like, check out my review when you can!
