Field of Dreams had a good storyline and although it seemed silly at times I managed to look past that. Kevin Costner gave a great performance.

Listening to a strange voice he heard in his field one evening he builds a baseball field and baseball legends of the past appear. The voice says "build it and he will come". After almost having to sell his home and at the end of a long journey he ends up reconciling with his Father, something he never had a chance to do before he died and baseball was common ground.

Field of Dreams was a sentimental but enjoyable movie.

Pretty moving, if somewhat corny story about having the conviction to follow your dreams. The themes of redemption are well portrayed. Madigan and Jones are great in it.

Field of Dreams, according to "The Bro Code", is the only movie a bro can cry at. Well, I can see why that is so. This movie is so dramatic and lighthearted, one of those late 80's movies that will never be made again, a rare masterpiece in filmmaking. Yeah, this movie can be sappy and melodramatic, but it's still recommended by me.

Field of Dreams means well, but its weak performances and childish grip may please only the most ardent baseball enthusiasts.

This is pure, movie magic. Never fails to send a chill down your spine and a tear to your eye. Splendid acting and intriguing story are what really propel this movie.

A fun mystical movie with an interesting story. Don't think of logic and beliefs just enjoy the movie for what it is. Flows well die to some good direction and good performances.

This movie is magical, uplifting and will make grown men cry. You don't have to know or care about baseball. This movie sucks you in with it's strange and fantastical plot and just when you think, 'I'm not going to cry', Kev goes and a says his last line of the movie and then the flood gates open.

Being 13 at the time of release and a baseball fanatic, this was by far the greatest movie of my childhood.

Gets away with quite a few conventional issues; good movie anyway.

"If you build it, he will come," has to be one of the most familiar and misquoted lines from a film from the 1980s. It stems from this charming film where Kevin Costner plays a baseball obsessed farmer who hears a mystery voice, telling him to build a baseball pitch on his land so that various deceased sporting legends can come back from the dead to play games that were denied them when they were alive. An unlikely premise maybe but it works. It is a story full of quiet appeal and lovely characters. Great performances by Costner, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and a swan song from Burt Lancaster mean that the sentimentality is pitched just right such that even the non-sporting types (such as myself) who care nothing about baseball will find a lot to enjoy.

Sometimes you just get a movie that get so enveloped in that you think you are one of the characters. What a movie!

A personal favorite. Field of Dreams is a thoughtful, compassionate movie containing a large repertoire of pitches laced with the aches of life.

*On a different note: Richard Corliss, from TIME, presented a poorly thought out analysis of the film. He criticizes reactions of men to the effects of athletics on the psyche. His reaction towards Field of Dreams is not an uncommon one. His reasoning is heavily invested in an insensitive attitude towards the movie's framework, but my criticism of Corliss' review is not over the way the movie made him feel. His necessity to generate justification wasn't intellectual.

It's a warm, whimsical, feel good film with a good performance from Kevin Costner. But this is too much of an American film that outsiders can't properly relate or call good.
