Fever Pitch – Filtered

Dove Review

Ben is a school teacher and also a huge baseball fan of the Boston Red Sox. He meets Lindsay, a business woman, on a class trip to her workplace. Ben really likes LIndsay and he goes up to her and asks her on a date. From there they hit it off. Everything is going great with the two but then baseball season starts and everything starts to fall apart with their relationship. Eventually Ben and Lindsay realize that they really love each other and that some things are more important than others. This was a very cute and funny romantic comedy. When Ben picks up Lindsay for their first date she opens the door while looking pathetic, and she starts to talk to him and then she has to run to the bathroom where she gets sick. There was a scene in which Ben is in the hallway at school and he throws a football to a classmate who throws it right into another teacher’s head. There were a lot of funny scenes, but because of the sexual relationship between the two main charachters, Dove cannot approve this film.
