A "little" league tale with "big" league charm
20 October 2003 | by (Pasadena, California) – See all my reviews

Heretofore a paucity of made-for-TV movies snatched our attention, tickled our fancy, or caressed our hearts. The avid TV viewer scoffs at the small screen's ability to spawn reputable high quality cinema. "The Man From Left Field" lays this stigma to irreversible waste. Nothing prepares you for this breathtaking tour de force and the sheer brilliance that it exudes. Shot on location in the tropical xanadu of Jupiter, Florida and the adjacent almost-paradise Indiantown, the very setting mesmerizes from the get-go leaving you vulnerable to sensory overload before the first commercial! Film legend Burt Reynolds delivers an epic performance that shakes the foundations of your soul. Country diva Reba McEntire's crossover debut establishes her as one of today's leading ladies and no one could fill the role of antagonist like football guru Joe Theisman. His athletic notoriety is a testament to this film's artistic credibility. No movie has ever before tackled the sensitive issue of retrograde memory loss like "The Man." Reynolds' portrayal of a wandering transient amnesiac is so bone-chillingly real you'll curse the Emmys for passing him over. Few films can simultaneously split your sides, draw your tears, and strum power chords on your heart strings like this one. See the majestic triumph of "The Man From Left Field" and let your spirit soar!
