    First let me say that I've seen About A Boy and High Fidelity about 3 times each, so I am a big Hornby fan. However, this movie had nothing going for it. It's a story about a stupid guy (and a woman who was stupid to get involved with him). There's nothing redeeming about it, nothing very funny about it, and it is a *huge* disappointment compared to the two films mentioned above.First let me say that I've seen About A Boy and High Fidelity about 3 times each, so I am a big Hornby fan.

  1. This frantic tale seems at once preachy and incoherent, collapsing into a more or less random collection of disconnected, unfocused scenes.
  2. If you don't operate on the premise that soccer is the most important thing in the universe, you might not go along with everything in Fever Pitch.

    It's an amiable enough picture, and genuinely insightful about the emotional appeal of devoted fandom.
