Whether you view it as Capracorn or Capraesque would depend on your values, but there's no denying the film evokes the vastness and grandeur of Middle-America

A movie for a thorough tear-duct cleansing - the only film that makes tears stream down the cheeks of this hardened critic, and it gets me at least twice every time.

Anyone who loves their father or baseball -- or both -- will find it difficult -- no, impossible -- to resist this hokey, wonderful film.

Say what you want about Kevin Costner, but you can't say he never played Jesus Christ.

It seems much easier to fall into Field of Dreams than to resist its warm, intelligent, timely appeal to our most idealistic selves.

The finest and most sentimental baseball movie ever made. If the ending doesn't bring tears to your eyes, you are made of stone. A must-see.

February 13, 2002
An engaging film that uses baseball as a launch pad for musings on human aspirations, righting old wrongs, and going the distance.

A dedicated cast acts out this gooey fable in deadly earnest.

Field of Dreams will not appeal to grinches and grouches and realists. It is a delicate movie, a fragile construction of one goofy fantasy after another. But it has the courage to be about exactly what it promises.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

The movie may steal a base here and there, but there are no homers.
