A Comedy About The Game Of Love.

According to Red Sox super-fan Ben Wrightman (Jimmy Fallon), finding romance is about as unlikely as his beloved team winning it all. But when Ben scores a beautiful new girlfriend named Lindsey (Drew Barrymore), suddenly anything is possible. That is, until the baseball season begins and Lindsey finds herself competing with an entire baseball team - the Boston Red Sox - for her boyfriend's heart and soul.

Will Ben's obsession with the Sox put his passion for Lindsey on the bench or will love win out? And can his team finally break the curse of the Bambino? Hilarious and wildly entertaining, Perfect Catch scores a home run!

Like High Fidelity before it, this is an American remake of another Nick Hornby novel, the seminal soccer fable Fever Pitch!

Decent little film about Men and Women, and their Habits.
Based on the book by British writer Nick Hornby, and already made into a film in the U.K called FEVER PITCH, starring Colin Firth.
And having read the book and seen the original version, the American version is good but a little light.
Saying that, it is still a decent couple of hours enetertainment, with a good cast, moments of humour and warmth, and it makes you wanna sport the Red Sox. Lol.

 No Ernie/Vivienne........Dont Eat That!!!!

Its strange how the dog in this film is a female playing a male.....well........I spose we have human transvestites, so why not dog ones! The reason I say that is, the dog of Ernie in this film, is actually played by Drew Barrymore's dog in real life, who is female and goes by the name Vivienne! How I came across this insightful piece of info is from my dear friend Lisa, (shout out to Lisa if she is reading, lol)! and so now when I watch this film u can kinda see that the dog really does react to Drew! SWEET!!
Anyway, the film, lol, I think this film is SWEET, funny, clever and laugh out loud all the way, except the parts where u shead a tear or two! I love Jimbo, dear Jimmy Fallon (loved his work on Saturday Night Live, he is one funny man) and Drew Barrymore is so loveable full stop!
I really love this film, great music 'SWEET Caroline!!' being just one, the end with Drew running across the baseball pitch.......maybe she had 'fever pitch'! and also the whole baseball side of it is great, and another piece of info Lisa told me is that, while they were filming this film, the Red Sox finally, after all these years, won the series! Isnt that cool!!

 Lovely!

Lovely is a fairly small word, but it is a beautiful one, and it actually sums up this film! I LOVED it - and so agree with the other review here (can't believe there's just one other review!) Jimmy is scrumptious! Drew is her usual funnnnnnnny self! And yes the bit where the dog is eating her vomit - ha - so funny! I didn't know what to expect from this film, but I was hugely impressed and it is now a keeper... !

A++++ Brilliance ...

 A hidden gem!

Being a chick flick fan I'm surprised I hadn't come across this sooner - bought it in the sales so had reservations, but it surpassed my expectations, in fact I loved it! Typical rom com from Drew Barrymore! Now buying it as a present for a friend who I know will also love it! Oh and the guy in it is pretty cute too which can't hurt right?!
