>DROPPED BALL: FIELD OF DREAMS In a sermon on the gospel according to wishful thinking, Kevin Costner plays an Iowa farmer who hears a disembodied voice telling him to build a baseball diamond in his cornfield. He follows orders, and soon phantoms of lots of old major leaguers, including Shoeless Joe Jackson (played, with glove on the wrong hand, by Ray Liotta), show up. So does Kevin's dad, whose flawed parental techniques led to this whole Freud-meets-Abner Doubleday mess. (MCA)
