We gave it an A

One of the most ingratiating romantic comedies in a while. Ben (Jimmy Fallon) and Lindsey (Drew arrymore) fall in love, but Ben is already married. . .to the Boston Red Sox. The Farrelly brothers provoke tender chuckles rather than guffaws, as Ben’s baseball ardor becomes a metaphor for the arrested male’s inability to surrender himself to love.
