‘Fever Pitch’: A Fun Home Run of a Comedy

June 24, 2020 1 Comment

One of those films I remember as having liked but rarely re-watching, Fever Pitch has an advantage, not just of a fun plot, but also its leading lady.

Fever Pitch (2005) Film Review

Lindsey (Drew Barrymore) is a career driven woman who suddenly begins to wonder and worry over the lack of a special someone in her life. Instead, work is all she seems to have time for. This is a contemplative question she ponders after she turns down a date invitation from a nice but not “right” potential mate. Still this leads her to second guess her choice, and she decides to go on the date.

Ben (Jimmy Fallon) is indeed a nice guy. In fact, the teacher may actually be the perfect guys despite their rough meeting. It isn’t long before Lindsey and Ben are quite in love, but what she doesn’t know is Ben has something of an unusual, or not so, obsession with a little game called baseball.

This may be an “old” movie, but it’s one of those super cute movies that just makes a viewer happy. It’s got all of the right rom-com elements, and it hurts nothing that Drew Barrymore is the leading lady. Anything she plays in seems so very likable and Fever Pitch is of the same ilk. There’s plenty of cute things in this film sure to entertain you.

It’s the kind of film that a starts out as optimistic and breezy before it morphs into a romance with a more serious approach, one in which relationship troubles trip up this pair we want to – and do! – cheer on. Fallon does a good job in this role; he’s a likable hero who’s kind of the “cute” boy-next-door kind of guy. In other words, he’s easy to root for as the “right” one to get the girl. There’s lots of sweet moments between he and Barrymore as their respective characters, and he makes the combination of goofy and “good guy” look easy.

If you enjoy cute, feel good movies, Fever Pitch is one you’ll really like. It’s got everything it should to be just this, plus the end is romantic comedy perfection!
