Bull Durham

BullDurhamposterBBBB.5

(out of 5)


One of the most enjoyable sports movies ever made is this classic comedy by Ron Shelton.  is lethally sexy as a boy-crazy baseball fan who every season picks a member of a minor-league baseball team to ‘sponsor’; her inspirational techniques with men guarantee a red-letter season, and this season she’s decided to take on two players for the price of one.  is delightfully goofy as a catcher who is recruited from another team to come and help a star pitcher () through his difficulties, and the both of them encounter conflict when they both fall for the lethal Lola. Terrific dialogue and Costner’s most likeable performance will win you right over.
