Okay, you have to like baseball or this movie will bore you. In the course of playing the last game of the season, the pitcher (Costner) reflects on the last few years with the woman he loves.

In the course of playing the last game of the season, the pitcher (Costner) reflects on the last few years with the woman he loves. Loved and lost. His life is told with baseball events as the markers. A subplot is the business side of professional sports teams today, but the real story is the interpersonal relationships with his love and teammates. I don't have many DVDs but this one is in my collection. Expand

On the surface, this movie is a cheesy romance flick, but what makes it unique is it's backdrop. An aging pitcher, at the end of his career, looks back on how it all started, while in the middle of pitching what could be his final game. AlongOn the surface, this movie is a cheesy romance flick, but what makes it unique is it's backdrop. An aging pitcher, at the end of his career, looks back on how it all started, while in the middle of pitching what could be his final game. Along with the flashbacks of his baseball memories, come flashbacks of his romance, which are long and lame. The baseball part of it is what attracted me and is great. If this was strictly a sports movie, it would be 5 stars. The story of his career is much stronger than several other films dedicated to just the game. With this film you have to take the good with the bad. At times it seems like two entirely different movies and it really takes away from what is otherwise a great film. Expand

Parce que là, le réalisateur se retrouve sans imagination. En effet, il nous livre un film du genre, tout ce qu'il y a de plus banal, avec surdose de bons sentiments et de musiques appuyées. Bon, ce n'est quand même pas désagréable à regarder, d'autant plus que les acteurs ne s'en sortent pas trop mal et que les passages de base-ball se montrent plutôt intéressants. Mais bon Dieu que c'est mou du genou! Et il n'y a rien qui empêche d'ennuyer le spectateur : histoire d'amour sans intérêt, dialogues qui semblent bâclés, montage en flashes-back dispensable... Sans compter une VF des plus loupées, les doubleurs se faisant rarement comprendre ni même entendre (cela marmonne trop!). Pour l'amour du jeu n'est qu'une pure guimauve hollywoodienne comme il en existe déjà tant. Et comme les autres, il vaut mieux l'oublier rapidement. Collapse
