    Aww, I liked Fever Pitch… I’m shocked that the Farrelly brothers directed it, since I usually hate their work.

      Thanks for the comment, David! I have such a hard time with the fact that I hate it, because a) it’s about my favorite sports team, and b) anytime someone asks me why I don’t like it, I can’t come up with any specifics. Officially, my reason for not liking it is that it feels false. However, I should probably give it another shot.

      Have you seen the 1997 original? It was British and about Football, like the book. I haven’t seen it, but perhaps you might want to check it out to compare it… you might like it more!

      I haven’t seen that, though I love Nick Hornby so I should at least read the book. There’s no doubt that I was burdened by particular expectations as a result of being a Red Sox fan. I’d have no such burdens with either the original film or the book.
