[--- Wait for Rental ---]by Ron Higgins VIP MemberSep 21, 2012

While there isn't anything wrong with the movie overall, it's a paint-by-numbers film. All the elements are there, and they are presented with no surprises. Personally, I enjoyed John Goodman's character the best, wishing that he had gotten more screen time. There are a good number of other people who you will recognize, but their on-screen time is also very limited. The picture is mainly about Gus (who has eyesight problems) and his lawyer daughter along with Justin Timberlake in a romantic interest role.

The movie will play well for the over-50 crowd, but it's no Million Dollar Baby. Clint Eastwood plays his character well, but I wouldn't expect to hear about the film come Oscar time.

Overall it's a fine movie, but certainly nothing special.

Did you catch Clint Eastwood at the RNC as he's standing on stage as he talks to a chair? In "Trouble with the Curve," he doesn't need a chair to give a good performance. A good performance, not a great one. He plays a baseball scout who who tries to get in touch with Amy Adams as her daughter. Adams is the best reason why I like this movie. She shrines above the other performers including Eastwood and Justin Timberlake. Adams's performance has kept the rally going. I like the way they are seen going fdrom ballpark to ballpark and scouting would be baseball superstars. Even you don't like baseball,then you'll find this film to be a real hoot.
