Other than them using God's name in vain it was a good movie. I'm not sure why they have to feel like they need to use bad language in movies.

I usually don't take the time to write reviews on movies, but I had to on this one!
My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It had some comedy, drama, and a little romance. I highly recommend it!! Clint Eastwood did an outstanding job! What a great cast altogether!!!

Great movie, had us at tears one moment and laughing the next...Clint Eastwood never fails as one of the greatest actors of all times. Will recommend to all my friends!

Contrary to several reviews, I did NOT find the movie slow, but rather appreciated it's willingness to develop a few characters. I read several negative references to Money Ball similarities, but wasn't that the point? Every plot/subplot could be boiled down to "it's not about the stats." In fact, the only negative note I had was that Mickey (Amy Adams) uses the phrase "it's not something you can put down on paper" on 2 different occasions when pushed by her "on paper" perfect boyfriend to be exclusive. It's like twice using a fancy adjective you looked up in a thesaurus and pretending you didn't notice. Justin Timberlake was irresistible (is there anyone who didn't love this character and his performance?). Eastwood's ability to subtly snarl and exhale at the same time was magnificent, even for Eastwood -- it may be Eastwood's new stereotype but who better to play the part? Loved the soundtrack. I'll never be able to hear You Are My Sunshine again without crying.

Hubby and I loved it. Not a Clint Eastwood fan, but loved him in this movie. Big fan of Amy Adams and she didn't disappoint. Even enjoyed Justin Timberlake. Very good acting.
Nice storyline. Heartwarming. Really enjoyed the whole film, no parts to "get through". Other than some strong language it's a great movie for the whole family.
