    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, where he didn't even try to have a British accent like everyone else did

Horrified, it slowly and painfully dawned that it was nothing but a Message in a Bottle/The Bodyguard-esque chick flick deceptively packaged as a sports movie. The producers must've been used car salesmen with that bait and switch. Never have I felt so cheated.

    Bull Durham was awesome.

    Easily Field of Dreams. Though he's only truly played one character, far as I can tell, his entire career. Which, as far as I can tell, is pretty much his actual personality. So is he playing the character or IS THE CHARACTER PLAYING HIM?????????

    In my mind Costner gets a free pass for all of his terrible movies since he gave the world Field of Dreams and Bull Durham (and maybe even Tin Cup).

    Field of Dreams: One of the best movies of all time!

    John Wayne could only play one character too, but Duke gave it a twist: he was worth watching.

    Dances with Wolves earns him a pass for every other garbage movies he's done.

    I agree with all of the above...with the exception of those I don't agree with. Costner's acting chops go all the way from A to B. But, you know what....he has succeeded on a large scale in a very tough business...and, as a result, he gets to perform the classic "laughing all the way to the bank," dance. BTW...I thought he got jobbed on Waterworld.

    Actually his latest turn as Devil Anse Hatfield was pretty good. Fits his demeanor perfectly. Stoic, always looking like he is either passing gas or deliberating how to kill you.

    Tin cup, untouchables, dances with wolves, bull Durham, and yes I'll say it....the bodyguard. Yes I think he's great. Oh and I'll throw one out for the one with Duvall too. That was a great flick!
