Fever Pitch

Theatrical Release: April 8, 2005
Fever Pitch


When Lindsay Meeks (Drew Barrymore) meets Ben Rightman (Jimmy Fallon) they fall for each other at the first sight. They are in love. Until Lindsay sees baseball season starts up and Ben has a new love… The Boston Red Sox. Now Lindsay must make this come to a halt to win Ben back through his Red Sox obsession.

Dove Review

Fever Pitch is a lighthearted comedy about an obsessed baseball fan and his workaholic girlfriend. We witness their meeting and several months of their dating as Lindsay learns how to cope with Ben’s deep love of the game.

The language in this film is fairly mild for a PG-13 movie, and many people will enjoy this sometimes slow but mostly funny look inside a relationship. Unfortunately, the entire movie surrounds an unwed couple who are clearly having a sexual relationship. At one point in the film, Lindsay confronts Ben with the news that she is “late” (and I don’t mean for an appointment). Due to this single reoccurring element Dove is unable to award this film our “Family-Approved” seal.
