Although Kevin Costner plays the 'older' more experienced ball player, in real life he's only three years older than Tim Robbins (33 and 30 respectively during filming), and Susan Sarandon was actually in her early forties (42). Additionally, Costner is about three and a half inches shorter than the very tall Robbins (almost 6'5"). See more »

I remember the first time I saw this film. I had won tickets from a local radio station and I saw it at a private screening at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I remember as I was watching it that it was one of the greatest experiences I had in a movie in a long time. This film is not only a great sports film, but it is one of the great all around films I have ever seen. This film has it all from romance to comedy to witty dialogue. Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner and Tim Robbins all brought Ron Shelton's script to life and the three of them displayed some of the greatest chemistry ever captured on film. This film is a timeless classic.
