No trouble with the curve to be expected
Proudly and pointlessly anti-Moneyball (2011) and only marginally evolutionary for Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake, this is nevertheless a high-production value worthwhile effort even if you don't like baseball. Work and family dynamics are the heart of the matter and well worth five bucks and theatre candy prices. In the final analysis men may not have feelings, but they do have baseball. By the way, Justin Timberlake continues to play pretty much the same character, someone who seems to be pretty much himself, but that's not a bad thing at all. He may yet do something truly great.
