A sports comedy that isn't laugh out loud funny but succeeds mostly because of its slightly goofy and lovable characters. Costner and Robbins have an interesting chemistry that drives most of the film's funniest scenes. I didn't really love Susan Sarandon's character that much and found some of the romantic subtext a little cheesy.

I hate sports but still liked this show. I loved Robbins as the not-so-bright but talented pitcher. I never like Costner in anything but even with him in it, it's a fun, funny flick.

One of the better baseball/sport movies. Costner and Robins do well and the comedy is nice. Though it never impresses on the true facts of baseball, some will enjoy it more than others.

Bull Durham review

"Crash" Davis (Costner) is a wise veteran helping out a wild cocky Ebby LaLoosh (Robbins). A peculiar girl named Annie (Sarandon) gets to know the two men who plays for the Durham Bulls. Simple premise yet the screenplay and soundtrack were wonderful. Chemistry between Robbins and Costner good, though Crash seems to be like the Yoda of baseball. Certain scenes kind of dragged. Had some steamy sex scenes and some characters were too weird ala members of The Cleveland Indians from a comedy flick. Best lines: Annie - "The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self awareness." Crash - "Why do you get to choose? I mean, why don't I get to choose, why doesn't he get to choose?" Bull Durham is a baseball romantic drama with touches of slight humor and symbolism's of the game and ...

Strikes out on laughs

In Durham, North Carolina, the minor league baseball team, the Durham Bulls, are having a horrible season. However, things may be looking up for the team as they have signed a promising rookie pitcher, "Ebby Calvin LaLoosh (Tim Robbins).

The team hires a catcher by the name of "Crash Davis" (Kevin Costner), who is nearing the end of his professional baseball career in the minors in a career that included three weeks in the major leagues (or "the show", as it is known in the minors), to teach the rookie. "LaLoosh" also gets some coaching by well-known groupie, "Annie Savoy" (Susan Sarandon), who hooks up with a player for the season, which many consider a good thing due to her unusual coaching ways in the sport she legitimately loves.

Although "Annie" has picked "LaLoosh", whom she g...
