When Ben attends his first game in 1980, as he and his uncle walk up the ramp and sit down, the score board on the Green Monster changes from the old version (AL scores only) at Ben's first glance, to the newer version (including the NL scores) faintly visible behind batting practice players and back to the old version.

Quotes

[first lines]
Al: [voice over] Eighty-six years of bangin' our heads against the big green wall, but we finally did it. That part you know. That part everybody knows. But I got a story you don't know. It's about this schoolteacher friend of mine named Ben.

A Decent Enough Distraction
17 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fever Pitch is a fun enough movie. It has a lot of funny moments (including a hilariously disturbing shower scene). Like most romantic comedies, it has a "dead zone" in the middle where all the heavy, "she's breaking up with me" stuff happens, but other than that it continues to be funny until the end.

Even though the plot revolves around fanaticism towards the Red Sox, it's not overloaded with sports. You don't have to be a fan to enjoy this film.

Of course that's easy for me to say: I've been a Red Sox fan since I was a boy, too.

7 out of 10.
