Bull Durham, the 1988 movie starring Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Robbins, is easily the best movie about baseball ever made. Yet you can love it without knowing a thing about the game.
That’s partly because it’s also one of the greatest sex movies ever made.
Here’s how Annie (Sarandon) introduces herself as she introduces the movie: “I’ve tried every religion, and I now worship at the church of baseball. There’s no guilt in baseball, and it’s never boring—which makes it like sex. There’s never been a ballplayer who’s slept with me who didn’t have the best year of his career.”
