There are a few classic movies, and this is one of them.

Because of it's very "adult" theme, Bull Durham is definitely NOT for children. However, it's great for adults who want a different type of baseball movie. While most movies focus on the ultimate; winning, this one simply deals with a minor league team and the "rival/friendship" between the pitcher and catcher-both who vow for the affections of Annie. Bull Durham has some classic lines and is absolutely hilarious! If you are tired of the everyday baseball movies, rent Bull Durham!

Watching this again for the first time in years, I now understand why my screenwriting instructor commented on the first act of this film as being one of the best written, and it's true. The dialogue is smart, funny and sad, all at the same time, and sets up the story perfectly. Good flick.

An American classic comedy and homage to baseball that also highlights the talents of Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, and Tim Robbins. Costner plays Crash Davis, a minor league catcher toward the end of his career who can't believe he's tasked with mentoring the crass, undisciplined but talented “Nuke” LaLoosh (Robbins). Sarandon stars as the ditzy groupie ---who is actually anything but---who's reconsidering her place in both life and the league. While frequently profane, there's a zany good sense of humor (poetry as foreplay; a mysterious rain-out; a lesson in wearing garters) and the deeper recognition that real relationships take work, making this a solid story.

Classic 80's movie with that 80's feel. Incredible soundtrack. One of the most progressive baseball movies I know of. I am glad to have found this on the shelves.

Average baseball movie about a woman who is attracted to two ball players and the one who she teaches to play ball and one who she'd rather sleep with. Could have been better.That's why I'm only giving it two stars.

Kevin Costner was never better in this wonderful baseball movie, with great performances by Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins as well. A classic.

Crash Davis: 'Relax, all right? Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.'
