Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It seems much easier to fall into Field of Dreams than to resist its warm, intelligent, timely appeal to our most idealistic selves.
Fresh: Field of Dreams sustains a dreamy mood in which the idea of baseball is distilled to its purest essence: a game that stands for unsullied innocence in a cruel, imperfect world.
Fresh: In Costner, writer-director Robinson has found the perfect player for a personal-stakes game, a guy with a leg-it-out intensity and kidlike enthusiasm. It's Costner's eye-on-the-ball exuberance that carries Dreams past its often mechanical aesthetic ...
Fresh: The sentimentality, of which there is plenty, is nicely balanced by a humor of ironic pragmatism, as when Ray, having built his baseball field as a monument to human dreams, decides to charge tourists $20 a head to visit it.
One of my all time favorites
This movie is not just for guys. Anyone will love it and I highly recommend it!
"If you build it, he will come."
Arguably one of the best baseball movies in history. You have some veteran actors, as well as some new faces at the time of this movie's filming. Next to "Field of Dreams" and a few other films, this is worth the money.
I'd never heard of this movie until I married an Iowan and moved to a town about 20 miles from where this was made (Dyersville) Now it is one of my favorite films. I've always liked Kevin Costner's work and this is one of his best. The supporting actors are also very good, specially James Earl Jones and Burt Lancaster. The director did a great job of capturing the essence of rural Iowa and the storyline is great. Needless to say, theres probably not many Iowans who don't already own this movie. I first saw the movie shortly after my father died........I still can't watch the ending without a tear or two....
