I generally consider She's All That to be my least favourite movie of all time. I caught Summer Catch on a plan trip, and in comparison to She's All That, it's worse.
Congratulations, Summer Catch!
Where to begin? The plot? Oh, that! The main plot has the poor Freddie Prinze Jr trying to overcome the hardships of being a poor gardener's son to become a great baseball player. Meanwhile, he falls for rich girl Jessica Biel. Uh oh, here comes a clash of cultures! I'm sure Jessica's father would not approve!
There are a bunch of subplots relating to the rest of the cast being wacky baseballers, including Marc Blucas falling for a fat girl, Fez from that 70's show having a The Graduate experience, and Matthew Lillard doing whatever it is that Matthew Lillard does in movies. I liked Scream, but the boy needs to stop. There's also a little girl who does something. You'll notice that I'm calling the people by the actors' names, and not by their characters' names. That is because there is not a single memorable character.
No redeeming qualities. At all. This movie simply should not have been made. Unoriginal, uninspired, nothing more than a moneyspinner, and it failed. It won't stop these movies being made, but perhaps it will stop a few from watching them.
On a side note, Brittany Murphy: you have talent. Go elsewhere.
