‘Bull Durham’ Movie Summary

Durham Bulls devotee Annie Savoy picks a new player to bring under her wing (and into her bed) each year. This season she’s singled out a loose-cannon pitching prospect named Nuke LaLoosh. He’s a big-league talent with a rock-bottom maturity level. However, she’s unable to shake Crash Davis, the veteran catcher brought in to give Nuke some on-the-field seasoning.

Watched this on TV in the late 80’s or early 90’s and enjoyed it. The film has become more of a cult classic since then. I like the simplicity of the ear it depicts. I like the dialogue and the cast that i think; works well together. The film almost seems like it could be set during the 50’s or 60’s although I believe it is set during the 80’s. Kevin is as likeable as ever and at home in these type of films, Robbins is miscast and Sarandon is quite sexy IMO. I remember being quite taken with her in this film when I was younger.
i give the film 4 stars
Great review guys
