Product Description

A rich girl whose family summers on Cape Cod has a romance with a local boy who hopes to become a major league baseball player.

Amazon.com

Fans of Freddie Prinze Jr. will no doubt enjoy Summer Catch, which features Freddie running through sprinklers on a baseball diamond wearing nothing but an orange thong. Freddie plays Ryan, an aspiring pitcher at baseball camp. Ryan grew up in the New England town that hosts the camp, mowing lawns with his landscaping father, so he's torn between his local friends and his new baseball buddies. Meanwhile, he's being pursued by a rich and beautiful local girl with the odd name of Tenley (Jessica Biel), whose father doesn't approve of her cavorting with the lawn boy. Ryan's an incredibly talented pitcher--everyone agrees, especially his bartending brother who also wanted to play ball but lacked the gift--but he's haunted by fear of failure and the recent loss of his mother. The strong supporting actors (including Matthew Lillard, Brittany Murphy, Brian Dennehy, Fred Ward, and Bruce Davison) do their best, but the script doesn't help. --Bret Fetzer

Despite the other reviews, this was a nice change from all the other movies out there. Just basic and enjoyable! Refreshing after a long day. Simple and sweet. Really enjoyed it!

Overall I found this movie to be more of a love story than a baseball movie, which is what I expected anyways. I enjoyed the baseball feeling towards the movie though, reminds me of where I play baseball in the summer. Acting in the movie was decent, the baseball players didn't really impress me all too much, which is what happens when you have actors that have probably never played the game, for starters: none of them looked like ball players to me. All in all I enjoyed the movie and would most likely give it a 2 and a half star rating if I were a newspaper critic.

Contrary to some of the reviewers, this movie is not all bad and is not for baseball lovers only. I don't care for sports at all, but didn't mind seeing baseball as a backdrop. It was nice to see Jessica in a more 'adult' role and Freddie Prinz, Jr. is not one of my favorite stars on a good day, but you can relate to his inner struggle of known vs. unknown life choices. The scene where his two long-time friends put him in his place is a real tear jerker and worth the time to watch the movie. Glimpses of Mark Blucas (Riley, BVS) and Christian Kane (Lindsey, "Angel") were also treats. I don't know that I personally would pay for a copy, but check it out on tv and decide for yourself. It's worth a peek! A nice stress reliever after a hard day.

This was one of Freddie Prinze best films yet. His acting was excellent, and very convincing. He is so handsome and really has good chemistry with Jessica Biel. Would love to see him in another romance comedy!

Before any of you rant and rave at me for giving this five stars, all I have to say is Jessica Biel. This was the first movie I saw her onscreen and she just blew me away. I bought her falling for Freddie Prinze, Jr., so really what else did I need?

Having said that, I enjoyed the premise a ton and this despite my being a huge sports fan but not much of a sports movie one. The Cape Cod League is one of baseball's best minor leagues and I felt the movie totally captured the feel of that summer league. Loved them using Curt Gowdy as the Chatham A's radio announcer and there's even a Hank Aaron cameo that was a total out-of-the-blue surprise.

The supporting cast is solid from Brittany Murphy to Fred Ward. Now looking back you can see Matthew Lillard, Marc Blucas and Wilmer Valderrama (pre-Fez!) as well as Annie Potts made appearances. The girl who plays Jessica Biel's sister steals the entire movie with her attempts to become the mascot of the A's. Just wait till she finally nails the perfect mascot persona near the end of the flick.

this movie was disgusting! i hated it. the way they treat people who are overweight is shallow, and cruel. when the "hot guys" in the movie sit around and make fun of an overweight girl, thinking it is hillarious, are we really supposed to laugh? i watched this movie with a friend of mine, who is, overweight, and there was no mistaking the pain in her eyes when her favorite actor, Matthew Lillard made cruel and heartless fat jokes. it is not funny at all. i know the people in the movie are all actors, but why they would agree to do a movie
in which overweight women are sought out, targeted, made fun of and ridiculed is beyond me. this movie is a disgrace. and it wasn't even good even if you could look beyond the prejudice of it. the plot was old, reused, recycled and tired, and unfortunatley the characters in the movie are horrendous.

I watched Summer Catch yesterday and, must say, I enjoyed this movie. I think the message is just to follow your heart, accept the support of others, while at the same time, do not let others negatively influence you.

The main character in the movie is Ryan Dunne (well played by Freddie Prinze Jr.), an aspiring professional baseball pitcher who is playing for a Cape League team during the summer, namely the Chatham Athletics. After previous career disappointments consisting of quitting his college team and being kicked off another team, this is his last chance to make the roster of an MLB team. While playing for the A's, he also works for his father's landscaping company and falls in love with the daughter of a wealthy client, Tenley Parrish (played by the beautiful Jessica Biel).

While this is going on, he is getting both encouraged by his friends, teammates, coach to succeed on the baseball field while being discouraged by setbacks during two games as well as by constant taunting from a very strong rival pitcher on the team. In addition, Tenley's domineering father is trying to push her to pursue his career of choice although she longs for another career and does his best to destroy the relationship between Ryan and Tenley, including threatening to cut of Ryan's father's business if he doesn't stay away from Tenley. In addition, Ryan's father tries to convince him that a relationship between a rich girl and someone from his background is not possible.

Overall, a good movie. There are other good characters in the movie such as Ryan's teammates who bring humor into the movie such as Billy Brubaker (played by Matthew Lillard) and Domo (played by Wilmer Valderrama). This move is worth a watch.
