Bull 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).
