A romantic comedy about a man, a woman and a football team. Based on Nick Hornby's best selling autobiographical novel, Fever Pitch. English teacher Paul Ashworth believes his long standing obsession with Arsenal serves him well. But then he meets Sarah. Their relationship develops in tandem with Arsenal's roller coaster fortunes in the football league, both leading to a nail biting climax. Written by
When Sarah asks Paul to quote Lord Byron, he quotes a famous couplet, "The Assyrians came down like the wolf on the fold; / Their cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold." But he changes "purple and gold" to "black and old gold," the colors of the Wolves football team. See more »
The final game of the season at Anfield kicked off at 8:05pm, it was nearly 10pm and dark by the time the match had finished (as you can see from the actual footage of the game) yet when the celebrations are going on back at Highbury it's still light. See more »
I haven't been interested in sports since I was twelve but this film made me care about Arsenal, Paul and other sports enthusiasts. The acting was perfect. The film was funny and lovely. Colin Firth proves his versatility again. For those of you who can't tell, this is the same actor who wowed everyone in Pride and Prejudice as the reserved, haughty, unapproachable Mr. Darcy. Bravo. Brava. Thank you, Nick Hornby
