Story: Gus Lobel is a veteran baseball talent scout proves he still has the knack of looking for real baseball talent despite the threat of old age.
Review: Clint Eastwood is known for action films way before I was born. He is known to many Western movies and Dirty Harry movies.
Years after Clint Eastwood retired from doing action movies, he started doing movies that fans didn't expected him to do. Directing and starring in drama movies. Despite that it was unexpected, the movies were given positive reviews from critics.
It was only couple of years back when we last saw Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino. Even though it is not action, Clint Eastwood still has this toughness in him despite his years that will intimidate. He has this stare and snarl that will make you think he says, don't get in my way or I'll ram you down.
Unlike Gran Torino, Trouble With The Curve has no depressing tone in it. It even has slice of comedy. Even though it is a PG-13 movie, it has lessons about family life especially if there are unresolved relationships between a parent and a child.
As for the baseball aspect, I learn to appreciate the game more. Like any team sport, the game play is not the only concern, it also starts with the selection of players. Trouble With The Curve stars Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman. Released and distributed by Warner Bros.
