[Movie Review] Trouble With The Curve

Trouble With The Curve
Starring: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake
Directed by: Robert Lorenz
Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures

Last Year's Moneyball which stars Brad Pitt and which is directed by Bennett Miller is my favorite movie last year and somehow topped my all time movie list, Trouble With The Curve is a pretty decent title to add on my favorite movies this year and could probably winding up in my all time favorites.

Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) 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. He may not have a choice. 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 is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his.

This is actually Eastwood's first acting project since 2008's Gran Torino and his first acting role since 1993's In The Line of fire, Robert Lorenz which is the director is best known for his collaboration with Clint Eastwood.

I Simply adore and love this film, somekind of sentimental and somehow tremendous in every way, a very easy chemistry between Eastwood and adams and a charming chemistry between Adams and Timberlake, a fun-filled, sweet, gentle journey all-through out the film, well acted albeit kind of underwhelming and predictable.

Trouble With the Curve is a treat that where you all can find which is laugh, love, sorrow and a very solid entertainment, I was hooked through this film, Eastwood and Adams proves thay they are sincere and fully committed, Critics say that Eastwood's perfromance is out of his range and i beg to diasgree, But then again a pretty well made film and an outstanding cast with exceptional chemistry.

Movies & Everything Nice
Rating: 4.5/5
