Bull Durham (1988)

 Rated R, but most of that is just to quote the delightful(ly wicked) dialogue.

The 101st edition of the Next 100 Project (yup, 101 out of 100) delves into humour and romance and also Ryan’s passion, having poetry read to you while being tied up. Wait…no! Baseball! The performances in the CostnerSarandon / Robbins love triangle are fantastic, but Ron Shelton’s script (with all that delicious dialogue) is the key to the movie. Plaaaaay podcast! Oh, but first hit up Sparkplug Coffee and save yourself 10% on your premiere order if you use the promo code “Top100Project”.

For The Record: At one point, Ryan says RKO281, but meant to say 61*.
