By A Customer
This review is from: Fever Pitch [DVD]  (DVD)
Being married to a football (USA) "nut", I really enjoyed this film. (The football in this film is "soccer" to us.) My husband and I watched it and he could see himself in many scenes. Colin Firth is a great actor, his frustration and love come through those gorgeous eyes of his. Ruth Gemmell was perfect also. I have not read the book, the film made us laugh and we did care about the characters. We had trouble with the English slang and other English eccentricities, like fans wearing red when their team wore yellow, we were confused at first but were able to catch-on. The actors were believable in their roles, it moved at a good pace, and Colin Firth was able to capture the man/boy conflict. Very enjoyable film.
