Field of Dreams is considered one of the greatest baseball movies of all-time. Now I whole heartily don’t agree with that, since this is a movie about personal drama than the game of baseball. Some may consider Kevin Costner’s character to be crazy and I probably would have never believed him either. Thankfully he has the world’s most supportive wife ever, since she allows him to see his field of dreams come to life. It is pretty unique situation with some pretty cool players who come back for one more visit, yet this is really unrealistic in every way possible. I understand this is not the point of the movie, that the point is making peace with tough situations in life, and that if you just believe miracles can happen. I applaud everyone’s performances, which earned the film an Oscar nomination, but this isn’t one of the greatest baseball movie of all-time. 6/10
One thought on “Field of Dreams (1989)”
This will always be my dad’s favorite movie. Kevin Costner is his very favorite actor of all time.
