Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in "Trouble with the Curve" - 2012

This movie is about Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) who has been the best talent scout in baseball for many years. As he has aged, his eyes are going bad, and being as stubborn as he is, refuses to get his eyes looked at by a specialist.

With three months left in his contract, Gus leaves for Asheville, North Carolina to watch some high school games and make a decision on who will be the Atlanta Braves draft choice. He claims he can tell a pitch by the sound of the bat.

He has a rocky and distant relationship with his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), but she is concerned for him so she surprises him up in North Carolina to help him choose. Mickey is a high-powered lawyer trying to become a partner in a prestigious law firm in Atlanta. However, Mickey wants to save her father's career while unknowingly jeopardizing her own. Johnny (Justin Timberlake), a former baseball player, finds himself interested in her.

Clint Eastwood seems to take on roles lately of a stubborn, old, senile man with a gruffy voice. I think he does a good job. Also he seems to talk to himself a lot in these movies. Sound familiar?

Scenes were shot in Young Harris, Georgia; Dunwoody High School in Dunwoody, Ga.; baseball fields in Jasper, Ga.; Turner Field in Atlanta; Luther Williams Field in Macon, Ga.; Dawsonville, Ga.; and in Athens, Ga. Robert Lorenz directed the film while Randy Brown wrote the screenplay.

The movie lasted 111 minutes. I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it.

OVERALL RATING: B
