Another vote for "Field of Dreams"
"Oh, you're from the Sixties. Get out! Go back to the past while you can!"
That's a great line.
Yeah, I almost put "Field of Dreams" on my short list. It's a terrific movie (and, like "Bull Durham," it's good despite
Kevin Costner). Ultimately, though, "Field of Dreams" and "The Natural" are about the same thing: fathers and sons connecting through the medium of baseball. And I think "The Natural" is just a better movie than "Field of Dreams." "Field of Dreams" is sentimental, "The Natural" is mythic.
Speaking of great lines, I think "A League of Their Own" has the best:
"Are you crying? Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There's no crying, there's no crying in baseball. ... Rogers Hornsby was my manager, and he called me a talking pile of pigshit. And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game. And did I cry? NO. NO. And do you know why? Because there's no crying in baseball. There's no crying in baseball!"
