But a studio executive told New York magazine that a test audience in Arizona gave a thumbs-down to Costner's manhood. "The audience giggled at Kevin's penis... Then, in focus groups, they said, 'Do we really need to see Kevin Costner's penis?'" See more »
At the end of the seventh when Tuttle argues with the 1st base umpire, the Yankees manager is seen running out to 1st to argue with the ump, too. A few frames later when there is a close up of Chapel walking off the mound, although it is blurry in the background you can see the Yankees manager running to 1st base again. See more »
Few movies leave me breathless. Fewer still leave me speechless.
This was one of those rare events where you find yourself clicking through channels and luck upon the beginning of a movie so engrossing that the world completely stops until the credits roll. This is Costner's greatest performance, with a depth of emotion that we've never seen before.
This is much more than a baseball film. It's a love story about love and baseball, and life and facing the future when you finally "grow up." It's about the choices behind us and the chances ahead.
