    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Plays like an unholy union of "The Natural" and "The Prince of Tides." Too bad...Build a movie as a shrine to baseball and they will come. Suckers! show more

    It is impossible to think of anyone but Costner in this role. His commitment and sincerity are never in doubt. show more

    This sentimental drama is wildly uneven as it switches between ballpark scenes, which are very involving, and romantic episodes, which are badly overplayed. show more

    The real love affair in For Love of the Game is between Costner and himself. show more

    San Francisco Examiner

    A piece of baseball fluff...Costner cinema, pure and simple. show more
