Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, and some sensuality.
My Rating: 3 stars

Drew Barrymore is another of my favorite actors. She always makes me laugh. But this movie didn't ring a bell with me, even though I've always liked baseball more than any other sport. Pathetic, huh?
Lindsey is a highly successful business woman who loves her work with a passion. Little does she know that romance is just around the corner... with the most unlikely person ever.
Ben is a super-fan of the Red Sox baseball team and his devotion always seems to put off girls. He doesn't care though. He'd rather have his game than a girl any day.
But when he meets Lindsey, that changes. Life suddenly got a lot more beautiful. But can two obsessed people make a relationship work? And if they can, will it be healthy?
What I Liked:
1: Lindsey's parents. Her dad and his hair totally cracked me up every time. Hilarious! I've never seen anything quite like it.
2: Oh... I must admit it: I did enjoy the romance. :-)
3: Ben reaction to maybe having a kid was so sweet. I don't know of any girl who wouldn't think, “awww” about a dad-in-the-works buying baby clothes.
4: Very little language. Nice change.
5: Great acting.
What I Didn't Like:
1: Crude jokes... and there were a few.
2: Sex scenes... well, they stopped at kissing, but you know what's happening. It was awkward and didn't help the story in the least.
3: The story/film/etc wasn't me. I couldn't get into it.
