I’ve seen Bull Durham once in my life. I hated it. I forced myself to sit through it again so I could write this review, and I hated it all over again. Kevin Costner is seriously the only enjoyable part of this comedy? romance movie? or baseball movie about the relationship or a crazy pitcher and his wise old catcher. Tim Robbins would go on to star in much better films which is a blessing considering how bad he was in the role. I often wonder why Bull Durham is considered one of the top baseball movies when it is just so bad. This isn’t a story about the game of baseball, it is more of a train wreck story about the people who play and follow the game. I know the majority of baseball fans love Bull Durham, it just wasn’t the kind of movie I’d recommend to anyone. 2/10
