A FAMILY FILM FOR LOVERS AND NON LOVERS OF BASEBALL. FUN ENTERTAINMENT!!!!!!!!!!!
Whether an expert or a neophyte, lover or neutral on the sport of baseball "Trouble with the Curve" has no trouble pleasing all audiences. Clint Eastwood, the constant curmudgeon, once again hits it out of the ball park...
Eastwood's "Gus" is an ageing, almost sightless scout for the Atlanta Braves; unlike his vision his instincts for the trade are 20/20; but he is competing with the "Moneyball" generation and refuses to cave to technology and accept obsolescence; he has to witness, listen, and go with his finely tuned, archival "gut", in the scouting process; no man or machine can best him...
Yes, "Trouble with the Curve" is predictable; but predictability can be comforting, like turkey on Thanksgiving, that warm, stuffed highly anticipated elation, coming once a year; in an era of unpredictability, nothing is as satisfying, soothing as a prime, predictable film.
