During the season opener the announcer mentions that hitter Billy Brubaker has been struggling with the wood bats this season. Obviously he would not know this nor is it possible since this is the season opener. See more »
Freddie Prinze Jr. only knows how to do teen movies. I mean he's going to be labeled a teen heart throb forever, even when he is old and gray. I don't think he knows how to do any other roles than that of the teen hunk who gets the girl. Okay, so I guess that's why he said he'd do Summer Catch. Yeah, so he gets to be a baseball player in the movie. That's supposed to shed his teen hunk image? I think not.
Love stories. Every single teen movie is a love story. And every single movie Freddie's been in has basically been that... a teen love story. In Summer Catch he plays Ryan Dunne, aspiring baseball player. What do you think happens? Ah yes, young Ryan falls in love with the rich Tenley Parrish (played by Jessica Biel). What do you think happens? Lots and lots of heartbreak followed by lots and lots of love. That's the same situation in all of these teeny movies.
The thing I don't get is that Jessica Biel says she wants to get away from these teen type images like in 7th Heaven, yet look who she plays in Summer Catch. And Freddie? Well he's probably going to be seen playing the dumb hunky jock in She's All That Part 2 or The Dinner Club. Ah, let's not get started. He might actually take me seriously.
