Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Reality, it seems, forced a re-write of the film's ending. Handled better, the "have your cake and eat it too" resolution might have been more satisfying, but the finale seems rushed. Having had the actors and a few cameras at the Red Sox's first World Series victory since the 1910's might have seemed like manna from heaven, but whatever footage the Farrellys captured is underused.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The movie has been directed by the Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby, who tend to make a different kind of movie...Here, they're sensitive and warm-hearted, never push too hard, empathize with the characters, allow Lindsey and Ben to become people we care about.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Tolerable Fever Pitch's comic temperature falls short of lukewarm, but on the subject of men and women, it's on to something. Full of sexual fracas-ing sparked by 'guy' obsessions, the Farrelly brothers' latest movie is a sort of undercooked Diner.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's a love triangle - but with a twist. Instead of revolving around three people, this story involves twenty-eight: a man, a woman…and a Major League baseball team. High-school teacher Ben Wrightman (Jimmy Fallon) is a good catch. He's charming, funny and great with kids. When he meets Lindsey Meeks (Drew Barrymore), an ambitious business consultant whose spirit is as luminous as her beauty, their attraction is immediate. Sure, they have their differences. She's a workaholic; he loves his summers off. He lives and breathes the Red Sox; she doesn't know Carl Yastrzemski from Johnny Damon.

But true love overcomes all…at least until Red Sox spring training rolls around. As Ben's beloved Bosox launch one of the most incredible seasons in baseball history, Ben and Lindsey must decide if they, as a couple, will strike out or fight to keep love alive through extra innings.
