12 BAD Field of Dreams Reviews: More Strikeout than Home Run [GALLERY]
It's been a year of resurging nostalgia for the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville. Sales of the 1989 Kevin Costner film skyrocketed after the August 12 contest between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees, the first Major League Baseball game to be held on the newly-constructed major-league grade field n the movie site.
It was announced two teams will battle it out there next year as well, as the beloved Cubs meet the Cincinnati Reds on August 11, 2022. We can't wait and it is sure to be as magical for fans as this year's event was. Well, some of them anyway.
We sort of take for granted the nostalgia and good vibes derived from all things Field of Dreams, but do you ever wonder: is there anyone out there who actually DIDN'T think the place was all that and a bag of peanuts? Believe it or not, some people didn't find their visit to be all sunshine and roses. To many, it was overrated at best, and to others, an enormous headache. That's unfortunate.
Most people tried their best to put their negative reviews in a positive light, despite an underwhelming experience. After all, the beloved tourist attraction may still hold a mystique to those who haven't been there. Others just felt like when you've seen it once, you've seen it a million times. Still, others minced absolutely no words that the glorification of the "Field of Dreams" in their mind was absolutely not the reality of the experience.
