Trouble With the Curve
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.

Very good movie. Clint Eastwood is fantastic, as always.

A fun little time waster. Eastwood is as canned as ever, too much hollow emotion. This is really a Disney movie. The way all the loose ends are tied up at the end is ridiculous. Could watch with kids, but they'd be bored.

Average movie, Clint Eastwood was great in his role, as was Amy Adams.
Justin Timberlake played a small role, as did John Goodman.
If you want to good, faster baseball movie, see Moneyball. Better pacing and better acting, imho.

Predictable and the romance seems a bit forced. I was a fan of Gran Torino, but Clint Eastwood seems cliched in this role. Since I saw it for free, I'm not complaining, but I would have been less happy if I paid for the Redbox, let alone the movie theater tickets

Another good quality Clint Eastwood directed and acted-in movie. I especially liked Amy Adams role. She is such a babe. LOL!

yes, Clint plays the same character yet again, but this time he is a baseball scout, has a daughter, and a different old car! I didn't mind this movie, I don't know what people who watched this were expecting, it's about an old broken down baseball scout - they really are not exciting! The daughter trying to connect with her dad, broke my heart a little. If it came on tv, I would probably watch it again.

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.
