Field of Dreams

Critics Consensus

Field of Dreams is sentimental, but in the best way; it's a mix of fairy tale, baseball, and family togetherness.

Movie Info

When Iowa farmer Ray (Kevin Costner) hears a mysterious voice one night in his cornfield saying "If you build it, he will come," he feels the need to act. Despite taunts of lunacy, Ray builds a baseball diamond on his land, supported by his wife, Annie (Amy Madigan). Afterward, the ghosts of great players start emerging from the crops to play ball, led by "Shoeless" Joe Jackson. But, as Ray learns, this field of dreams is about much more than bringing former baseball greats out to play.

Critic Reviews for Field of Dreams

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (52) | Rotten (8)

  • 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.

  • All of this would work better if Robinson built up the reality of the town more, made the citizens a more palpable presence, as Frank Capra did in Hollywood's greatest fable-fantasy, It's a Wonderful Life.

    March 20, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 20, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite a lovely cameo turn by Burt Lancaster, Field of Dreams is the male weepie at its wussiest.

    March 16, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The life-equals-baseball masterpiece still packs an unexpected kick.

    November 3, 2007 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Despite Costner, Field of Dreams is magical. It is certainly the best movie about baseball ever made but it also speaks to lost opportunities, missed connections and chances of redemption.

    It's delightful for what it is...but what it is is a movie about ghost baseball players that I wouldn't watch over and over again, unlike Die Hard. Once is enough :~P The beginning has a nice thrillery feel, and I enjoy how Ray's wife is happily supportive, but when it becomes a buddy road trip movie, the flimsy connections between Terence Mann and Doc Graham just don't cut the cheap ballpark mustard.

    Field of Dreams is more like "The Ghosts of Baseball's Past" that follows every character's unresolved issues with faith, imagination, and optimism.
