Watched It on the Way to the REAL Field of Dreams!
on September 27, 2016
We bought this movie to watch in our motorhome on the way across the country to visit that ACTUAL Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, Iowa. We didn't buy it for the bonus features or commentary, so I can't review those--we simply bought it to show our little boys this wonderful story before seeing the real field. It really is a neat plot--a farmer gets a message from the beyond to cut down some of his corn crop and build a baseball field, and when he does, the ghosts of baseball players from the past come out of the corn to play ball on the field in the evenings. A little twist here, some closure there and it's a wonderful family movie (a few bad words but nothing terrible). Kevin Costner is great, and my husband and I both shed tears when we watch it (in a sentimental way, not in a Marley and Me way!). And now that we've watched it and spent family time with our own little boys on the real field, this movie will be a family tradition and treasure for years to come. Thanks!
