For some reason, Jim was quite hesitant to go see this movie. Though for him, a movie’s gotta be GREAT — otherwise, he feels that he’s just wasted 2 hours of his time.
I, on the other hand, can appreciate most movies in one way or another. If nothing else, I am thankful for the fact that we managed to drag ourselves out of the house and AWAY from the computers — that alone, makes virtually ANY movie more exciting than a computer screen!
Plus the fact that I get to call it a “date”. 🙂
What Made Fever Pitch Worth Seeing?…
Mostly the way they were able to work in actual footage from the recent World Series games where the Boston Red Sox actually won!
Some of the scenes were even shot right there on the field during, before, or after a game.
Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon are both perfect in their roles. Both independent and head-strong. Both with their unique quirks.
Here’s my complete review of the movie, Fever Pitch (…plus lots of other movies we’ve seen).

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
