Bull Durham (1988)

US 108m, Colour
Director: Ron Shelton; Cast: Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Trey Wilson, Robert Wuhl

bull_durhamBull Durham is a goofy romantic sports comedy about a rookie pitcher, a veteran catcher, and a woman who acts as a lucky charm for any player she chooses to get involved with. The Durham Bulls are a minor league baseball team whose fortunes brighten when the three learn to work together. Thin on plot, the film tends to drag on in the final act, and while there is a fair bit of humorous dialogue, there is not much of a point to this dated minor league production (Klaus Ming March 2016).

    We’ll disagree on this. I think it’s a great screenplay well acted. I like the characters and I love the story. I think there’s something essential in it.

      Yeah, I just don’t see it. I like Robbins and Sarandon as actors, and even think Costner was pretty good in this. It felt like there could have / should have been more to the story.
