Bull Durham (1988) (C)
"Two big thumbs up!" Siskel & Ebert.
Baseball season gets off to a rocky start when the Durham Bulls' new catcher, "Crash" Davis (Kevin Costner), punches out the cocky young pitcher, "Nuke" Laloosh (Tim Robbins), he's just been hired to train. Then sexy Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon) informs both men that each season she chooses one player to share her bed - and Nuke and Crash are this year's "draft picks." After Crash passes on the offer, Nuke eagerly enlists as Annie's summer fling... until Crash's jealousy takes over and he convinces Nuke that sex with Annie will jinx the Bulls' newfound winning streak! Costner "strikes sparks" (Time) and Sarandon "gives one of the juiciest performances in all of American comedy" (Rolling Stone) in this "treasure of a movie" (Roger Ebert) about America's other favorite pastime! -- (C) MGM Home Entertainment, 1988, USA.
