Trouible with the Curve
This movie is actually better than So-So, but not a definite Go. Clint is Gus, a baseball scout for the Atlanta Braves. He used to be considered one of the very best. His eyesight has gotten worse. Some of the boys in charge upstairs are wondering if he can still do the job including Vince(played by Robert Patrick) who would like to see him gone. The pressure is on for Gus (Clint) to get il right in scouting a hot prospect--Bo Gentry (Joe Massingill).
His daughter, Mickey, (Amy Adams), is approached by Gus's long-time friend and head of scouting for the Braves, Pete Klein (John Goodman) to find out if Gus still has what it takes.
Mickey and Gus have many unsettled issues and then Johnny (Justin Timberlake), new scout for the Red Sox, reenters Gus's life and so enters Amy's life.
Seeing Clint shed a tear or two might be enough for some to go see this movie. A young Eastwood (not Clint)can be seen at the start of the movie and a highly satisfactory ending are two more.
