Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Bull Durham is a film with spring fever, a giddy, playful look at life in baseball's minor leagues. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, May 6, 2014

Fresh: Shelton locates the tension and the humor between pitches, between ball games, between the sheets. It helps too that he has written the wittiest, busiest screenplay since Moonstruck, and that his three stars do their very best screen work. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Mar 16, 2011

Fresh: Costner is a natural as the dyed-in-the-wool ballplayer. His best lines are when he's philosophizing, like on being an All-American male who hates anything by Susan Sontag. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 6, 2014

Fresh: [Shelton is] uncanny at putting us inside his players' heads when they're on the mound or up at bat, running their private litanies of encouragement and subversion to psych themselves up. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, May 6, 2014

One of my favorites!

So glad this movie got added! It's one of my all-time favorite movies.

One of my all time favorites!

It’s about time iTunes stopped “Lollygagging” and made this movie available!!!


Yes, we live in a world where iTunes users rate What Happens in Vegas and the spoof movie The Hangover Games four stars, but Academy Award nominee, critically acclaimed and even professional athlete favorite hit romantic comedy BULL DURHAM is ranked lower.

Written by a former semi pro player, Bull Durham is not only a witty and often hilarious romantic comedy but also a great and revealing look at semi pro sports. It has heart and laughs and some fantastic performances from the whole cast. A true classic.
