4.0 out of 5 stars fielder's choice--
a decent drama from hallmark. Chad lowe plays a very self centered man thrown a curve in life that makes him have a choice to make. I can recommend this movie for the whole family. He is put in charge of his nephew who in turns teaches him that there is more to life than a career and himself.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Fielder's Dream" a Disappointment
As others have noted, "Fielder's Choice" is indeed a "safe" film for all family members--no foul language, no violence or nudity, etc., and the basic theme (self-absorbed single work-a-holic bachelor eventually coming to grips with the world outside of himself in the person of his orphaned autistic nephew) is certainly innocuous enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Fielder's Dream" a Disappointment, August 25, 2009
This review is from: Fielder's Choice (DVD)
As others have noted, "Fielder's Choice" is indeed a "safe" film for all family members--no foul language, no violence or nudity, etc., and the basic theme (self-absorbed single work-a-holic bachelor eventually coming to grips with the world outside of himself in the person of his orphaned autistic nephew) is certainly innocuous enough. Unfortunately, what had the potential to be a truly moving film was undercut, in my view, by a totally predictable, slow-moving and poorly-developed story-line, mediocre cinematography, and many scenes that simply did not come across as true-to-life. For these reasons, I believe most parents will discover that their kids (no matter what age) will find the movie unbearably boring--thus negating the hoped-for "quality" family time.

For those who are looking for a somewhat similar type of moving, family-safe film, I'd suggest taking a look at "The Heart of Texas" as one good alternative. It's a documentary, also moves along somewhat slowly (though the run-time is just over an hour, so about 30 minutes shorter than "Fielder's Choice"), but it is a true story that is told effectively. One caveat: watch the film when all viewers are wide-awake and can focus on the film's theme (the power of forgiveness); the "action" alone will not keep anyone awake! But I'd have to say that that warning is even truer for the much-less-effective "Fielder's Choice!"

Disappointing TV movie about a supposedly autistic boy, who is foisted
on his bachelor uncle, who naturally doesn't want his lifestyle changed.
But of course, Uncle slowly learns to love the tyke, who doesn't seem
all that autistic. An average Lifetime type movie. A happy tear-jerking ending of course. I wouldn't object if it was done in a believ-
able fashion.

This review is from: Fielder's Choice (DVD)
A sister and her son give a surprise visit to her brother giving him a chance to know his young nephew. Later on she gets in a tragic accident and is killed . The brother now must decide between his carrier or his fears of being a parent, there are difficulties that go on between them both but as time goes on a bond between them two develops. This movie shows the personal needs that some one may wont in there lives,and that at a moments notice things can change so quickly. The power and strength of a parent's true love can make things right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Hallmark Movie, March 21, 2007
This review is from: Fielder's Choice (DVD)
This is a pretty decent movie. It's what you would expect from Hallmark. "Big Daddy" presents a smililar situation in a more entertaining way and on a deeper level.
