Summer Catch is a romantic comedy film that revolves around the journey of a young baseball pitcher named Ryan Dunne, played by Freddie Prinze Jr. Ryan is a townie from Cape Cod who comes from a working-class family but has big dreams of making it to the big leagues. Ryan's life takes a turn when he meets a rich young woman named Tenley, portrayed by Jessica Biel, who's vacationing in Cape Cod for the summer. The two have an instant connection, but Tenley's father, a wealthy businessman named Rand Parrish, played by Bruce Davison, disapproves of their relationship due to Ryan's low-income background.

Ryan's real chance comes when he gets selected to play for the prestigious Cape Cod League, a summer baseball league where young prospects can showcase their talents in front of scouts. Under the guidance of veteran coach Chet Steadman, played by Fred Ward, Ryan must prove his worth to the league and also win back the affections of Tenley.

As the summer progresses, Ryan faces several challenges on and off the field. He must confront his inner demons that stem from his past failures and learn to channel his emotions in a positive way. He also finds himself facing off against top-notch players from around the country, including his own childhood friend and rival, Billy Brubaker.

Despite the odds, Ryan's talent shines through, and he becomes one of the best players in the Cape Cod League. He impresses many scouts, including the legendary baseball coach Darryl Van Horne, played by Brian Dennehy. However, Ryan's success comes at a cost, as he finds himself drifting further away from his hometown and his roots.

Throughout the movie, Ryan and Tenley's relationship is tested by her father's disapproval and their own personal demons. But in the end, they both learn to overcome their differences and follow their hearts.

Summer Catch is a heartwarming story of love, friendship, and pursuing your dreams. The excellent performances by the cast, especially Freddie Prinze Jr. and Jessica Biel, bring these characters to life and make the viewer invested in their journey. The stunning scenery of Cape Cod serves as a backdrop to the film's summer vibe, making it an enjoyable watch for audiences of all ages.

Summer Catch is a 2001 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1 and a MetaScore of 21.
