    An excellent sports film. Costner, Robbins and Sarandon are great!

    Clever little humdinger which is more enjoyable the less seriously one takes it. Remember, this is the minor leagues, so they should be easier to relate to. And though it has been recently stated by austute authorities on the subject, it is again worth pointing out that Sarandon and Robbins have no chemistry whatsoever.

    I loved all of the baseball aspects of the movie. Both Costner and Robbins were great. I disliked every moment Sarandon was on the screen. She just rubs me the wrong way. She has no chemistry with any of the other characters.

    Though his film is like no other baseball movie, it may remind you of Paul Newman's hockey comedy Slap Shot: a knowing look at sport's underbelly - punctuated by jelly-belly laughs. [15 June 1988]

    It's just that when a movie is this close, with so much of the sports flavor (co-producer Thom Mount is co-owner of the real Durham Bulls), you like to see it perfect. [15 June 1988]
  3. The movie evokes Howard Hawks (in spirit if not to the letter) with its tight focus on a snug, obsessive world of insiders and camp followers where the exchanges between buddies and sexes have a euphoric stylishness and a giddy sense of ritual.
