Anyone have an opinion? I like Field of Dreams.

evie (ecie) | 4261 comments What's the movie with Drew Barrymore and Gina Davis?

My old brain... I 'll probably recall the name later tonight.

Susan | 6406 comments Look what Sally did with her corn field!

I like Bad News Bears.


message 8: by Suefly (new)

Suefly | 620 comments I like Bull Durham, but growing up in the 80's, The News Bears movies are also worth mentioning.

CD  | 1486 comments The best one I've seen in a long time is

Trouble with the Curve.

see IMDB -> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083383/?...

Before that I think that The Natural is my favorite. There are some other close contenders including Bull Durhan and Major League if just for the entertainment value.

That is the same one Madonna is in. I had to look it up "A league of their own", although I don't think Drew Barrymore was in that, maybe there is another one.

You're right. I think Drew was in a movie about roller derby.

I like this one too. Not that I've seen very many baseball movies ..."


Neither have I, although I thought Sally must have psychic powers. My last PM to you had been a quote from Field of Dreams.

Carol | 1679 comments CD, I really liked Trouble with the Curve. Much better than Moneyball. I couldn't understand most of the dialogue.

I'm watching Field of Dreams with my first hour class. It's awesome.


message 17: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3403 comments The Natural, probably because I read Malamud's novel first.


message 18: by Kenneth P. (new)

Kenneth P. (kennethp) I never quite connected with Malamud's novel, and I really tried because I liked several of his other novels. The movie didn't work for me either. I can't put my finger on it but it was too Myth-making, if that makes any sense. And while I like Randy Newman, his music in that movie was way over the top.

I vote for Eight Men Out by John Sayles, an underrated director.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments The Sandlot, duhhhh.

That said, I really loved the X-Files episode called "In the Big Inning." That was awesome.


message 20: by Alexw (new)

Alexw | 17 comments The Natural- best line-"Some Mistakes, you never quit paying for."


message 21: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3403 comments I agree - The Natural

Jan | 241 comments Fever Pitch.
