Clint Eastwood is Great, Amy Adams is Brilliant (by TheTruthDoor)
"Trouble With The Curve" is a wonderful film. The casting, acting, writing, direction, were all superb. The location scenery was beautiful.Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game, he plays his part effortlessly. And, OMG, Amy Adams was unbelievable, she is amazing and beautiful, she deserves the Oscar for this film. The chemistry between Clint and Amy was perfect.This is not a baseball movie, it is a father-daughter film in the fashion of "On Golden Pond". It will make you laugh, think and cry.Another Clint Eastwood film that Hollywood can be proud of. Go see it.
A wonderful Father-Daughter film for us (by aprthdr)
If you are the daughter of a man that took the time to come to your elementary skit shows...or never missed a little league softball game...or walked around the neighborhood with a flashlight following you at a safe distance during Halloween...or hugged and kissed you every time there was an earthquake...or a thunderstorm...or the electricity went out...then go see this film. Clint Eastwood will bring back memories of your dad too, like he did mine. The movie was very touching, sweet and deep. Not every girl gets to experience having a dad that's present, but if you did, you will <more>
thoroughly enjoy this story. I used to watch baseball games with my dad The Dodgers and we would talk about the players and the opponents and we enjoyed it. It gave us our special time to be alone, because my mom was bored with baseball...and during that time my dad would talk about everything else during my day...and I didn't realize it until I was in High School. Great movie...thanks for the memories dad.
Best Actor Oscar for Clint Eastwood (by taylor_king-890-815491)
This is a terrific movie with top-notch performance by Clint Eastwood who deserves an acting Oscar for his authentic portrayal of an aged, but still gifted, scout for a professional baseball team who refuses to rely on computer stats to judge new talent. Despite the onset of losing his eyesight, he retains the energy to travel around small-town America to view young talent and confidently judge whether they can cut it in the big leagues. But, he is a grumpy old guy with a troubled past, which is where his relationship with his daughter, expertly played by Amy Adams, comes into play when she <more>
takes a break from her hard-driving law job to "be his eyes". Their relationship has a lot of baggage, however, so there are many great father-daughter scenes of frustration and misunderstanding. These are believably played by Eastwood and Adams, and made me care about the characters and become totally engaged. Our whole family loved this film.Clint Eastwood is brilliant in his ability to project toughness with vulnerability.
Just got back from seeing this movie, and I enjoyed it very much. I'm not a person who follows sports, and even though baseball terms were thrown around, I had no problem keeping up with the story. The casting was phenomenal; each character was portrayed perfectly by the actors. The story may be a little cliché, but it was enjoyable all the same. The plot is about a father and grown daughter trying to reconnect over baseball scouting. There is drama, laughs, and even a few tears along the way. I highly recommend this movie.
Much better than baseball fans would lead you to believe... (by duke-197)
This movie isn't about baseball any more than Star Trek is about how to operate a space ship. Baseball is merely the background, like music is in the back ground.As in Eastwood's other most successful recent movies this is a story about relationships, the meaning of life and the bitter sweet of partial redemption.So if you enjoyed "Million Dollar Baby", "The Unforgiven" and "Grand Torino" you will enjoy this movie just as much. The one dramatic element that isn't in this movie, that was in those others, is due to the script and not some failing by the <more>
director.This was a great first time effort by Lorenzo. Clint Eastwood has some really, really touching scenes when he's not in his grumpy old man mode. Unfortunately, since people still associate him with action he probably will not get the recognition for that acting, or Lorenzo for directing those scenes.
WOW! I'm not the one who writes lot's of reviews on movies but this one is just great. Really mature motion picture with sense of humor,some drama and lots of good lines. Loved it. If you are tired of "WOW effects" and "Good guys always win" style of movies this one is really good fun. Eastwood brings his very good acting and the rest of the actors are very believable too. Amy Adams is very convincing at playing the worrying daughter . At the end the pace is a bit too fast, and ideally the movie could take another 30~45 minutes but that would made it longer to sit <more>
through in the theater's for some people. It still kept me entertained during the course of the movie! Recommended!
I normally do not like movies about sports. I love sports; just not movies about sports. That being said, this film was not so much about baseball as it was about a father and daughter relationship. It also touched on how technology has taken over the human element of scouting for players. This film is the complete opposite of Money Ball, where technology actually helps in building a team. Gus Lobel Clint Eastwood is an aging scout for the Atlanta Braves who is struggling with his eyesight and the front office has doubts about whether or not he is still up to the job of spotting up and <more>
coming talent. Because of this affliction, Gus is a grumpy old man which actually adds a lot of humor to the film. His character kind of reminded me of the character that Eastwood played in Grand Torino. His daughter Mickey Amy Adams discovers that her father is having difficulty, reluctantly takes on the roll of caregiver and follows her father on his scouting adventure. Incidentally, she knows more about baseball than probably anyone else in this film. Johnny Flanagan Justin Timberlake is an aspiring sports announcer who was scouted by Gus years ago. The relationship that develops between Mickey named for Mickey Mantle and Johnny is fun to watch and provides some insight to Mickey's reluctance to develop a serious relationship with any man. Pete Klein John Goodman plays the mediator role that brings Mickey and Gus together. I really liked his unyielding devotion and trust to Gus. It was also good to once again see Scott Eastwood Billy Clark act alongside his father. They have acted together in several films, and it was good to see them spending some family time together. I think that the entire cast definitely made this film better and I am sure that it will draw young viewers to the theater. I do not think that this film was utterly brilliant, but it was thoroughly entertaining. There were aspects of the film that were totally predictable, but I looked forward to seeing it play out. Director Robert Lorenz may not have hit it out of the park like he did with Million Dollar Baby , but I think that it is a definite triple play. I recommend that you do not sit on the bench and go out and see this film. I give this film a green light.
A great film for sports fans and non sports fans alike. Great drama and acting by Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. They really make a believable father and daughter. Justin Timberlake was also good as a washed up pitcher turned baseball scout. It follows a story of a baseball scout Eastwood who is getting towards the end of his career, and scouting the potential number one pick for the Atlanta Braves. Eastwood is definitely getting up there but he can still act and plays this part perfectly. The film moves along good, and is enjoyable from start to finish. It has laughs, drams and some <more>
romance. Great for a couple or for the family. An added bonus if you're a baseball fan. 8/10.
It pains me to say that I've already heard many people say they will not be seeing Trouble with the Curve because of Clint Eastwood's "antics" at the Republican National Convention just a few weeks ago. Their loss. Not being able to separate the man from the actor is something that took me a while to do, but the way some do it now is childish and immature. I wonder if those same people knew Eastwood was a Libertarian/Republican when he was playing "Dirty Harry." Hard to believe it has been nineteen years since Eastwood himself acted in a film he has not directed. <more>
He lends the camera to Robert Lorenz, who assisted him in directing much of Eastwood's filmography, including Flags of Our Fathers and the acclaimed Best Picture winner Million Dollar Baby. Lorenz's captures screenwriter Randy Brown's simple but uplifting, intimate story of a man's devotion to a game and his brewing reconnection with his daughter he seemingly abandoned at a young age.I'll catch you up; Eastwood plays Gus Lobel, an elderly scout for the Atlanta Braves baseball team, who is becoming increasingly frail and ill-equipped with deteriorating eyesight. The Braves are losing faith in Gus's abilities, because in recent years, baseball has been run more by computer predictions and online statistics rather than physically sitting in the stands and scouting. Gus doesn't hold back on his hatred for computers, making them sound like limited fossils and being unable to predict more detailed outcomes. One wonders if he is mindlessly ranting or wouldn't even like a computer if he knew how to use one.Pete, played by John Goodman, on a roll now with winning films, is Gus's close friend who is convincing the Braves' organization that despite Gus's poor eyesight, that he is an invaluable asset and needs to stay. He recruits Gus's daughter, Mickey Amy Adams , to assist him in scouting a young prodigy in North Carolina, who currently plays for a high school team. Mickey's mother died when she was young and shortly after, Gus sent her to live with relatives whom she barely knew. During the scouting trip, Mickey winds up meeting one of Gus's friends whom he used to scout back in the day, named Johnny "The Flame" Flanagan Justin Timberlake , for his one-hundred mile-an-hour fastball. We can see where this is headed.We can see where much of the film is headed throughout its runtime but it's scarcely a burden because the warmth and bold character study on three of 2012's most interesting characters is a soothing and efficient one. Eastwood turns in the racism and foul rants he expertly utilized in Gran Torino for some nuanced anger as Gus, and as always, comes off as charismatic and effortlessly likable. Amy Adams does some fine work here, showing us that she is an up-and-coming female actress that is going under the radar, somewhat like Emily Blunt, and fearlessly plays the role of a woman in desperate need of answers, which her father will not give her. And Justin Timberlake continues to show is versatility and heart playing a totally different character from his last one and hitting every note properly.It would appear that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin could have possibly started a new trend with sports films that was seldom seen before his film Moneyball, and that trend is centering a story around a sport but making the center the characters and not the on-field theatrics. Never are we truly consumed in the story of this young scouter, but we shouldn't be. And never were we truly gripped by the Oakland Athletics players in Moneyball - mainly because we never saw them play or were even formally acquainted with them. Both films center around the same sport, but ones' agenda is to show the gritter business side of baseball, while the other is the story of a father and daughter reconnecting with the sport in the foreground. With both films, it's needless to say, I'm all for this brewing trend.Starring: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Lillard, and John Goodman. Directed by: Robert Lorenz.
