The fact that you are red in the face and screaming “IOWA, IDIOT!” just goes to show you how memorable this movie is. It is definitely Kevin Costner’s most quoted baseball movie. “If you build it, he will come.” Classic line. “Ease his pain.” Another classic line. And anything James Earl Jones says is classic from “Moonlight Graham” to his “People will come” speech.
This is a great feel good family film. It deals with family, faith, hope, and baseball. Baseball brings us together, and this film proves it. I never played catch with my dad (he wasn’t the athletic type). But we did watch this movie together, and that was almost as good.
