(RNN) - There was no fairy tale ending for the "Italian Stallion" in this particular bout. Rocky ducked out of the semifinal in one of the closest matchups of the tournament.

A mere 18-vote difference was the deciding factor that sent Caddyshack to the final round. It will face Field of Dreams, and fans will decide which is the greatest of all time.

Let the arguing and clicking begin.

No. 2 Caddyshack vs. No. 2 Field of Dreams

Caddyshack, 1980

Stars: Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Bill Murray

Synopsis: A kooky playboy with a Zen outlook (Chase), a crotchety judge (Knight), a "new money" loudmouth (Dangerfield) and an assistant groundskeeper with a gopher vendetta (Murray) are among the oddballs gracing the fairways of Bushwood Country Club. Through all the hilarity, caddy Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) tries to figure out how he will make his way to college.

Field of Dreams, 1989

Stars: Kevin Costner, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones

Synopsis: After hearing voices ("If you build it, they will come"), Iowa corn farmer Ray Kinsella (Costner) turns the voices to a vision and then makes it a reality by building a baseball diamond. When he does, the infamous 1919 Chicago White Sox show up - as does as his late father.
