The movie directed by the Farrelly Brothers starred Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore.
While filming, the Red Sox won the World Series for the first time in decades and a new ending had to be filmed.
Jimmy Fallon said the original ending would have resembled the ending of the book the movie was adapting: “It’s a love letter to the fans, which is why we picked the Red Sox because they lose... So I think the original ending was just we rip the contract up... So if they hadn’t gone to the World Series, it would have probably just ended on that. Just them kissing on the field.”
