Math teacher Ben meets unlucky-in-love career woman Lindsey. Looking for a change from the usual (successful) guys she dates, she agrees to go out with him, and a relationship ensues. Then the other spike drops. He's an obsessive Red Sox fan and must choose between his love for Lindsey and the Sox. Standard romantic comedy is raised a level by coinciding with the Red Sox' historic 2004 comeback against the Yankees and subsequent World Series victory. Adapted from Nick Hornby's novel about an obsessive soccer fan. A solid outing, but the brothers Farrelly show signs of losing a little zip off their fastball.

This isn't one of my favorites. It is an alright movie to watch when there's nothing else on. When relaxed and charming Ben Wrightman meets workaholic Lindsey Meeks she finds him sweet and charming, they hit it off and when it is winter Ben can spend every waking hour with Lindsey, but when summer comes around the corner Lindsey discovers Ben's obsession with the Boston Red Sox. She thinks it is perfect until everything goes downhill for them.
