Movies for Valentines Day
Now, as he assumes the mantle of The Tonight Show, it may be a good time to finally give Jimmy Fallon his due although his film career has more than its fair share of bad movies Taxi, anyone?, he put together an oddly endearing performance in this underrated, underseen flick. The premise makes you think it will simply be about Fallons character learning that love is more important than his die hard Boston Red Sox obsession, but it ends up having a slightly deeper perspective on issues of vulnerability and abandonment. Fallon is undeniably charming, both funny and sympathetic. Drew Barrymore on the other hand is rather ditzy as the female lead, but compared to some of these other films Fever Pitch is fun, popcorn entertainment. And its a great way to get a sports fan to watch a romantic comedy.
