Gus Lobel has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gus-who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat-refuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickie, an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm.

Terrible movie, complete waste of time.

Clint Eastwood stars in this lite comedy/drama/romance about a baseball scout and his daughter. It comes from the opposite idea that was depicted in “Moneyball” (which stated that scouts sans statistical analysis are unable to efficiently select prospects. Here, the thesis is that the old scouts, without any statistical abilities are just great at detecting the weaknesses of some prospects. I would rate it 3 stars, but I give it an extra star for the rather rare opportunity of watching Eastwood act in a film he doesn’t direct. The story is somewhat formulaic, yet it is enjoyable and humorous.

This is my idea of an entertaining movie. It was not perfect but it dealt with real things - family relationships, getting old, falling in love, i.e., life. The acting was great. The story was sweet. Some of it was a little corny and predictable but not in a bad way.

One of Eastwood's straight entertainment movies: not great, but decent lightweight amusement.

Dull, boring, predictable, unfunny. Seen it all before and much better. I think Eastwood must have owed someone a big favor to be in this.

A mediocre script in the hands of dazzling performers, like Clint and Amy, still makes for a decent flick. The TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE was that it wanted to be Oscar bait, but fell flat with very little story to tell other than the advancement of the struggle between father and daughter. Nothing pointed to its conclusion; it was just Clint's verbal diarrhea in a hope to be shocking. In that respect, it felt trashy and exploitative. Yes, this film suffers from a classic case of the subplot-turned-main-conflict syndrome, so if you're looking for a baseball movie, look elsewhere. I enjoy Timberlake, Eastwood, and Adams as much as the next guy, but the film wasn't even close to their strongest.

Clint Eastwood, a great American actor. I have followed since the days of Rawhide, yes plays the cranky old man with a daughter that is trying to find her father in the midst of baseball and the scouting of talent. Well written, much like the game of baseball a bit slow but works out. Overall it was a very good movie.

I love Clint Eastwood's performance and his character's relationship with his daughter. Thought it would've been a whole lot more touching but it was okay.
