Rating: 2.5/4 -- Like Billy this movie is good on the field, but not so much once off it. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Vanity is one thing, but Costner's act is beginning to feel like a particularly self-righteous -- and tiresome -- form of pathology. Someone should tell him that an actor's job is to disappear into his characters, not vice-versa. Full Review

...Stirring visuals and feelgood plot...An uplifting sports drama...

...Costner is intrinsically convincing as a star athlete, and it's pleasant to notice how he's been able to improve his work within his specific range...

For Love of the Game asks whether the same qualities that make an athlete a champion don't also destroy his happiness. The answer, unfortunately, is long-winded and redundant... But some of the baseball scenes are good.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- On the field, Costner is consistent, but his exploration of Billy's romantic dilemma is superficial and often wooden. Full Review

Rating: C -- Every scene away from the ballpark is in foul territory. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Sam Raimi follows up his 1998 hit A SIMPLE PLAN with a movie that completes Mr. Costner's unofficial trilogy of baseball films. Told almost entirely in flashback, the film concerns an already legendary 40 year-old pitcher, Billy Chapel, pitching the last game of his career that also marks the end of what has been, at best, a mediocre season. Going up against the Yankees, Billy remembers, while on the mound, his failed affair with the woman he still loves (Preston). As the game unfolds and it becomes apparent that he's on track to pitch a perfect game, Billy begins to wonder if he can win her back, and if his ailing arm can make it through nine innings.
