Forty-year-old pitcher Billy Chapel is practically a dinosaur by professional baseball standards, fast approaching the end of his career. After a bad season, just before he is about to start in what could be his final game, his girlfriend tells Billy that she's leaving him...for good.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
Far more horrifying than Evil Dead, Sam Raimi's attempt at making a sports-oriented romance strikes out, forfeits and loses three times before its two hours and 10 minutes are up.

Here are two things that definitely don't go together: baseball and piano music.

Kevin Costner is back starring in his third baseball movie, and after those two box office home runs, Mighty Kevin has struck out.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Every scene away from the ballpark is in foul territory.

For Love of the Game's earnestness seems itself like a desperate cry for attention.

Baltimore Sun
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.

Like Billy this movie is good on the field, but not so much once off it.

Those flashbacks will drive you nuts. As if baseball didn't drag on long enough, almost every inning or out of that Yankees game is punctuated by a memory.

Chicago Tribune
This is no perfect -- or even half-perfect -- game. It's another movie where conventions are subbed for life lessons, where the emotions are cued by golden oldies and where the motivation (at least on the studio's part) isn't love of the game but money.

New York Daily News
The baseball sequences are fabulous, not least because Costner looks and moves like a real player a rarity for actors in sports movies... But the love story, a five-year off-and-on affair, is little more than a sop to Costner's romantic faithful.

Philadelphia Inquirer
On the field, Costner is consistent, but his exploration of Billy's romantic dilemma is superficial and often wooden.
