Every summer, the most talented college baseball players come to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to compete for a spot on one of the Cape's elite baseball teams, a stepping stone--for a talented few--to the major leagues. This year local boy Ryan Dunne (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) is getting a rare second chance. But a rivalry with a hotshot teammate and the wiles of sexy, sophisticated rich girl (Jessica Biel) could keep Ryan from reaching his dream.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A cliched and predictable sports comedy that's mostly devoid of excitement or laughs, Summer Catch is strictly bush-league.

Sex, drinking, language in dated baseball romcom.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Summer Catch is a 2001 romantic comedy in which Freddie Prinze, Jr. plays a young pitcher with one last chance to find success in baseball. There's quite a bit of sexual content in the form of innuendo, implied situations, and double entendre. The baseball players stay in the homes of locals; one is a woman known for sleeping with her guests -- with implications as to how she uses grapes and cucumbers in bed. It's implied that the lead character has sex with his girlfriend on the pitcher's mound the night before the first team practice; they wake up surrounded by empty beer bottles and the lead character's clothes are gone and he's forced to show up to practice wearing the only article of clothing that was still there -- a pair of thong panties. Brief nudity -- male buttocks. One of the players is dating a "plus-sized' woman, and his teammates make fun of him in a way that comes across as fat-shaming. This player, near the end of the movie, stands on a chair in the bar where they hang out and announces his love for "curvy, voluptuous" women, and receives applause from the patrons. There's also a fair amount of drinking -- characters are shown drinking in bars, at parties, at the beach, at ballgames. Lead character shown hungover in one scene. Cigarette smoking. Occasional profanity, including "f--k." Product placement, particularly of Sam Adams beer.
