It's a odd love story about a guy who screwed up his life and realizes it after a former lover of his commits suicide. Mark Harmon's best movie. Jodie Foster is brilliant.

Great coming-of-age romantic drama. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will be moved. Jodie Foster shines as Katie Chandler and Mark Harmon is amazing as Billy Wyatt. Buy this movie today! It is one of the best movies I have ever seen. One of my all-time favorites.

Great movie, very underseen/underrated. Never heard about it until this week. Ebert hated it. Ebert's weird about movies like this. He hated Inventing the Abbotts too. Anyway, this is really good.

Yes it's melodramatic but Foster's really good in this bittersweet trip down memory lane.

It's hard to believe Mark Harmon used to be a big screen leading man. I've largely forgotten this, but remember liking it back in the day. I think Jodie Foster is what makes it work.

I just happened to come across this movie in storage and so I watched it. It is now one of my favorites. I love how it is not only a baseball movie but also a movie about love, loss, and growing up. Excellent movie.

The music is incredible, such a beautiful story of growing up and of love and of loss. Makes me cry everytime.

One of my favorite movies of all time. A real tear jerker. Jodie and Mark are outstanding in this film.

Always amazed at what one will find in the library or hidden within the shelves forgotten by everyone. This is your standard coming of age story of an American boy which has all the typical trimmings with it. 50s music, baseball and men starting to like girls. I only remember Jodi Foster as a kid playing tomboy roles and playing strong female roles of the 90s so this seems very weird to see her play a teenager. Either way a standard issue coming of age story.

Eighties movies are, in general, a pretty bad lot. There were some good ones like Dirty Dancing and...well that's probably about it. Stealing Home falls short of even the low bar I set for movies from that decade.

Mark Harmon is a "washed-up" baseball player who finds out his first love has killed herself. Good enough premise. Except Harmon still looks the same now as he did 22 years ago...smug and unlikeable. On top of that is one of the worst sounding scores, if you can call it that. Simply awful. The story is nothing profound. She pushed him into baseball, and when he's in the gutter all those years later, it is her memory that gets him back on his feet.

I love Netflix, but the service failed me again. This was supposed to be a tearjerker. The only emotion I feel is one of frustration for wasting my time. But oh well, I nodded off a few times so it wasn't a complete loss.

If ever theres a love story, worth remembering , this , is it .
First, I have adored Jodie Foster since the early 1970's . Any movie
She's in , is always a hit . This one, is no different . Actually, this
one almost surpasses a lot of her previous movies . If you envy
emotion , then you should watch this movie . I don't want to say much,
because , this is one of those movies, you watch alone, or with
someone you love . Either way, you'll be thinking , of where your
life is going, and where you'd like it to be . Who you'd like to be in it, with you . Before it's too late .

Odd little movie, which I can't figure out why I like it...or if I really do like it...
