Watching this on the jumbotron, inside a MLB stadium, after a game, the day before Father's Day, was a bit of a unique experience for my first time seeing this classic baseball movie. Although my father, instead of watching this slightly underwhelming, yet oddly endearing schmaltz with me, went out with his new girlfriend. But it's cool, in 20 years I'll just build a baseball field in the middle of Iowa so I can have a catch with his ghost. That'll make up for the lack of our relationship.

So you thought the synopsis for 'Star Trek iV: The Voyage Home' had got to be the craziest in history to ever get the green light? Well, I'll take time travelling whales over this non-sensical, sentimental bullshit any day of the week! How something like this receives rating colors other than reds, I cannot begin to comprehend.

"People will come." It's one of the best (if somewhat overly self-important) speeches in movie history. Baseball puts me to sleep faster than listening to your work stories, but I still love this movie. Plus a Ray Liotta ghost!

There's something special about this kind of unflinching, no room for doubt-80s cinema. It's weird in all sorts of ways, and I'm not sure if it even means all that much. But man, did I like it.

I had a lot of time for this. A pleasant, magical little tale with a nice vein of feel-goodness, and the added bonus of James Earl Jones. I might have gripes, but I have little interest in exploring them. Nice.

A well made film, but one's whose syrupy feel good message gets really tiresome. The film constantly acknowledges it's own fantasy, but in a way that just makes it more ridiculous. It still got to me at times, and maybe without Madigan's annoying laugh I might have left with an overall positive impression.

Everyone talks about how it transcends sports but I just see a fanservice feel good sports movie with idealized rural dynamics. Probably speaks more to people with love for baseball and unresolved feelings toward their fathers. You know what's happening and what's going to happen as far as emotional moments go. I like time travel and literary characters. Fav scenes: pandering town hall speech by the wife, who really doesn't do much here except stand by her man; JEJ being kidnapped.

I don't care how manly you are, if you don't tear up at least a half-dozen times during this flick you've got no soul. It's about baseball, it's about fathers and sons, it's about redemption...Kevin Costner at his wide-eyed best as the simple farmer caught up in something he can't understand (and Ray Liotta as effective and understated as he's been).

An A-budget fantasy that has a religious approach to baseball(!!!) and that makes up the "rules" as it goes along really shouldn't work, but it does, and brilliantly. One of the most unique films of its kind ever made, which is all the stranger noting the star cast

The rare movie that's melodramatic and manipulative, and you know it the whole time, but damn if it works and you just don't care. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball.

This is a great film, some may only say it's good but I, on the other hand, say it's great. I don't know about everyone else but I find the plot device of no one believe another person's extraordinary events really annoying. This, however, has a nice mix of people believing and not. I loved the surreal touch to the film and Costner and James Earl Jones are both fantastic. Really I don't even like baseball but this is a great film.

I don't care for baseball, in fact I find the sport fairly boring, so admittedly the premise for this movie, was lost on me from the get-go. That being said: This has GOT to be the most stupid metaphor ever told.

If you take a step back and really think about it, this is one of the weirdest premises for a movie. It does somehow work though, and much better than a lot of other fantasy family movies. I watched this like 30 times as a kid because I only had about 10 VHS options available to me at home.

Although it is a terrific film, even with Kevin Costner, I found this hard to watch a second time. It's a great story with an interesting mix of real and surreal, and it's full of many incredible performances, but you can't get a whole lot out of multiple viewings. Really good!

Aside from Ray Liotta swinging the bat from the wrong side (Shoeless Joe was a lefty at the plate), I don't really have many gripes with Field of Dreams. It's a cool journey with a good supporting cast, and a last 15 or so minutes that usually leave me choked up or in tears.

This is obviously a great movie and has been known as one for a long time. I am a huge basebal fan which made this movie even better, but someone would not have to know anything about baseball to love this movie. It envokes family unity as well as personal accomplishment. This is a very uplifting movie that everyone should see at least once. I give it only an 85 simply because its slow at some points and for the yonger generations it may seem to drag on. Still a great movie.

If the first act were not so dreadfully slow, it would be ranked among the best baseball films. It has a lot of heart and takes some risks with its boilerplate premise.

Utterly charming and captivating fantasy shouldn't work as well as it does (especially for someone in whom baseball holds no sentimental appeal) but the sincerity and utterly straight acceptance of what's a fairly outlandish idea sells the Capraesque fantasy perfectly (we also get a Jimmy Stewart shout-out as if there was any doubt!). Costner is perfectly warm and stoic here, matched by some of Jones' best work and a lovely cameo from Lancaster. Touching, moving and even profoundly spiritual.

On my first ever trip to America, my American cousin took me to watch a local baseball game. He was trying to explain the rules to me and I didn't understand shit. After the game, he introduced me to one of the players, big guy and told him "this is my cousin, he's from Europe, so he doesn't like baseball". Then big guy turned to me all puzzled and said "What do you mean you don't like no baseball? Are you a communist???" That line cracks me up every time I think of it.

It can me a little manipulative, tis true; but after this movie you won't be blue. It can be said that the field is not all that's made of corn; this is a fine movie of a son's love forlorn. "If you build it, he wil come", say the voices in Ray's head; but who would have guessed, allthe players in the field were dead. Costner, Liottam and Jone are masterful; my poetry, sadlt is pitiful.
