Wonderful family movie that endures through the ages.
This is simply a wonderful movie that endures the passage of time. While it is a baseball field, it is not a baseball movie. It is a family movie that helps people see the wonders of what a family can do when they pull together. Obvious fiction involved, one must see through the story and look at the specifics. It does not have cell phones, tablets, or laptop computers. There are no video games in this movie. It shows the simplicities of life and how issues and struggles that most all families face can bring a the family together as a unit rather than destroy it as so often takes place. I highly recommend this movie.

Fields of Dreams
I can't help but LOVE this movie. Just like Costner's character, Ray Kinsella, I was born in 1952. A South Side Chicagoan, I was born a White Sox fan, and was disappointed to discover the BLACK spot in their history. Luckily, I didn't have the kind of issues with MY Dad that Ray Kinsella had with his. Mine taught me to catch, took me to my first major league base, hockey and football games and was a great example for me.
For me, there isn't a bad performance in this film. Costner and Amy Madigan (A hoot at the PTA meeting!) are excellent. Doc "Moonlight" Graham a great role for Burt Lancaster's next-to-last big screen performance. James Earl Jones is outstanding (big surprise, eh?) as Terrence Mann as is Ray Liotta as "Shoeless' Joe Jackson. They both deliver moving monologues and if Jones' "People will come" sermon doesn't put a lump in your throat you'd better check your pulse.
1 MINOR quibble. There is a player in catcher's gear among the original 8 "Black Sox" who appear from the cornfield. This does a great disservice to 1919 season White Sox catcher, Ray "Cracker" Schalk, who not only did not particape in the fix, but was eventaully inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame.Read full review

Brngs back memories of a great vacation.
I bought this movie just because I like it,and,I like because it is a great movie,and the fact of the matter is ,it brings back memories of the time that I took my vacation from work one summer just to go see the ball field in person and stand on home plate. It was the best time on vacation that I have ever had.This movie doesn't compare to any other.

for the baseball lover
This movie is a great piece for the baseball freak like me.
It is a classic, along with "the natural", which also tells the true story about the game.
I would say "The field of dreams" is to baseball what "Young blood" is to hockey.
All great to watch with the kids.
