Davis P Bull Durham is a comedic baseball film starring Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Robbins. The film centers around an older baseball player and a vary talented rookie. Then, there's a woman who hooks up with a baseball player every season and kinda takes him under her wing. She does that with the rookie (Tim Robbins) this season and that's where our movie begins... The acting in this movie and the on screen chemistry between the characters is what makes this movie work. Yes, it's technically a sports movie, but it doesn't really center around baseball too much. It focuses on the characters and their relationships with one another. It really has something in it for everyone. It has really good comedy that works, some romance, sports of course, and some serious moments. There are many lines from this film that I would consider to be some of the best lines in cinema. No wonder it's writing got an academy award nomination. I really like this movie, it's just good entertainment. 8/10 for Bull Durham.
Mr-Fusion For a baseball movie, this was a bit of a curveball, but I liked "Bull Durham" for a number of reasons. One of them being its treatment of baseball as a daily grind; that these are just shlubs in the stadium workplace. Another is the writing; this is some great dialogue and a few of those lines just seem to come out of nowhere. It works pretty well as a romantic comedy, but even better as a clash of wills between two competing players - which takes a somber note as Kevin Costner dishes out wisdom only to find himself spit out the bottom of a middling career in baseball. that aspect drew me in more than I 'd expected. And I must surely not forget to mention the film's most winning feature: the utterly magnetic Susan Sarandon. The movie just charges right up when she's around.7/10
851222 Greetings from Lithuania."Bull Durham" (1988) is about baseball and about falling in love. Sounds corny, but it's all about that actually. It works both, it not a deep romantic story, but it sure knows a lot about baseball. Performces are very good in here, especially by Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon. Susan Sarandon should have been probably even considered for Oscar for best role, she is that good in here. Kevin Costner is more or less is Kevin Costner is here, which is also a good thing.Overall, "Bull Durham" is a very enjoyable romantic sports movie. Story is very simple, and the approach to it is also easy and enjoyable. At running time 1 h 40 min this movie barely drags and it's an entertaining easy ride.
edwagreen You often wonder why certain guys never make it in baseball given the fact that they have potential. We see this in the film.Kevin Costner is absolutely wonderful as such a player. An experienced catcher, he has what it takes, but only lasted in the major leagues for a brief period. He is resigned to the Durham minor league team where he meets up with fan and announcer Susan Sarandon who acquires a great southern accent for her role.Tim Robbins is the pitcher that Costner is assigned to work with. His appearances are memorable. Strikeouts and walks are the same high amount. Watch out when he throws, anyone there is vulnerable. That's what happens to the film-the vulnerability of the Sarandon-Costner- Robbins relationship comes into question.
