Fever Pitch Reviews

Unfortunately, plot is a totally unconvincing jumble and Ryan O'Neal as a sports reporter hooked on the gambling game is wooden and unsympathetic.

The opening segments of the movie are simply odd, distracting and unconvincing. It's the movie's final act that is sick.

An old-fashioned and numbingly predicable problem pic of the kind that he used to do rather better.

You could live a long time and never see anything as awful as Fever Pitch.
