Bull Durham is a jaunty, refreshing comedy that mixes sex The ambling pace and inventiveness of Bull Durham are the doing of Shelton, a filmmaker worth watching. This film is a tidy summing-up of one aspect of America`s favorite sport.
Writer-director Ron Shelton tells a wonderful story of how a veteran ballplayer and up-and-comer collide in the world of the minor leagues, and how they are loved by a baseball groupie who's also a philosopher and poet.
Shelton, nominated for a best-original-screenplay Oscar, nails the details of minor-league ball visually as well, from the players' superstitious pregame rituals to the dead, painted-green grass on the field.
