Adapted from the decidedly British Nick Hornby novel (where the "Pitch" of the title indicated soccer as the idolized sport of the story), the Farrelly "Pitch" takes the action to American shores, basking in the red and white glow of Boston Red Sox lore. For every missed joke or bungled scene, the Farrellys make it up to the audience by creating pure baseball excitement, helping to keep the pace of the film when it occasionally becomes sidetracked. From the Green Monster to Fenway Franks, the filmmakers adore every nook and cranny of the team, and their eagerness to envelope the audience in the ambiance of the field and the spectator stands keeps "Pitch" delightful.

I found that...

I'm from Boston where the movie takes place so I have a special feeling for Pitch... Also the fact that when the Red Sox won it last year they had to change the story really makes me wanna see it
