Twitter Capsule: Just as frisky as Bull Durham. Shelton proves again that sports are a ripe field for grownup character comedy.

VOR:   Proof that Durham's jockish masculinity and sneaky exploding of same was no fluke. Inventive, pitch-perfect star pairing that kept paying off. Sporty but open to non-fans.
