Fever Pitch

No, not the Boston Red Sox baseball comedy featuring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymone. This is the Fever Pitch that inspired that movie, and not to slight Jimmy Fallon (love what he’s been doing with The Tonight Show), but Colin Firth is an incredible upgrade in the actor department. Fever Pitch is a pretty awesome adaptation of Nick Hornby’s truly fantastic novel, as we watch Firth’s Paul Ashworth, a London school teacher, struggle with how to balance his love for his favorite football team, Arsenal, and his love for his new girlfriend.
