A poor man's Field of Dreams
26 August 2001 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

A retired pitcher (Alan Arkin) finds out his long time battery mate was elected to the Hall of Fame, but died just before finding out. The movie is Arkin coming to terms with his regrets of the past, and driving to Cooperstown, but with the ghost of Greene in the car with him. Along the way come his great nephew who practises meditation, and a girl they pick up along the way who is fanatical about baseball. The movie touches on the plight of the non-white baseball player, the "Zen" of the game, and the regrets and grudges people keep between each other.

Unfortunately, the movie had way too many silly moments and forced situations, that one best beware that this is not Field of Dreams. The pacing is glacier-like at times as well. Just a Sunday afternoon time waster kind of movie, nothing more.
