The Trouble with the Curve

Clint Eastwood is as an aging baseball talent scout who reluctantly takes his daughter (Amy Adams) with him for what might be his final recruiting trip in this sports drama. Co-stars Justin Timberlake and John Goodman.

Gus (Eastwood) has been at the top of the scouting game for years, but age is starting to catch up with him. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help him - his estranged daughter, Mickey (Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardising her own career to save his.

Robert Lorenz's square but sturdy directing debut rests on the wonderfully spiky chemistry between Eastwood and Amy Adams.

Eastwood and Adams do the best they can with the cornball sentimentality and cheesy dialogue.

The pat and occasionally preposterous story is really just a pretext, a serviceable scaffolding for a handful of expert, satisfying performances.

It's sentimental and glutinous, and the ending is almost surreal in its contrivance and unbelievability.

Any Eastwood film is notable above all for its professionalism. If the story here has certain foreseeable moments, that's not to say they aren't set up well and deliver right on time.

This amiable, old-fashioned film is no world-beater, but it underlines why, appearances with empty chairs excepted, it is always a pleasure to see this man on the screen.

A warm bit of American classicism with essential themes of humility and sportsmanship.

The old pro scores with another hit right up the middle.

You'll know exactly where it's going, but it still has Clint doing full-on-cranky and is a fun finger-up at corporate suits the world over.
