Storyline Heading

Preparing for the final game of the season, Billy Chapel, an All-Star pitcher finds himself caught in the worst situation he's ever been in--not only is he about to be traded after 18 seasons with the Detroit Tigers, the woman he's been with for several years is about to leave him.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Drama - For Love of the Game is both a romance and a baseball movie, though there's much more of the former than the latter. The slow pace and sometimes unconvincing romance could be distracting for viewers more interested in the baseball action, while the baseball scenes could potentially be distracting for the audience that prefers romance. Fans of Kevin Costner will probably enjoy seeing him once again in a baseball setting, though the story is less intensely about baseball than previous Costner films Bull Durham and Field of Dreams.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Baseball continues to be very, very good to Kevin Costner in FOR LOVE OF THE GAME, though it's more of a solid single than FIELD OF DREAMS' ground-rule double or BULL DURHAM's inside-the-park home run. Deftly constructed as perhaps the ideal date movie -- it's a love story that also happens to be a baseball movie -- FOR LOVE OF THE GAME works reasonably well on both levels. Unfortunately, Kevin Costner remains to enigmatic for the romance to be perfectly convincing. It's fundamentally satisfying, but it's hard not to wish Costner's character had been more complete, and less one of those baseball icons he has exploited so successfully in other films.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner) is forced to re-examine his priorities in life when he is confronted with unexpected circumstances-not only is he being traded after 20 years as the heart and soul of the Detroit Tigers, but Jane Aubrey (Kelly Preston), the love of his life, is leaving him.

Surrounded by a stadium full of fans, he now stands alone on the pitcher's mound in the midst of one of the best games of his career, re-evaluating the direction his life has taken. Aware that the stakes in his life have increased dramatically, the veteran ballplayer realizes that he has some pretty serious decisions to make decisions which will not only determine his future as an athlete, but as a man.
