nonbaseball fans have nothing to worry about and should go see this movie! it's not all about baseball. it's actually a very good human nature love story between a father and daughter.
amy adams is a lovely actress and justin timberlake is versatile and shows great potential. eastwood is eastwood ;)

Three couples went last night in spite of the low rating by the critics. I had heard that Eastwood's character was similar to the one he played in GRAN TORINO. That IS always the character he plays...crusty but a softie on the inside. All of us truly enjoyed the movie. Our ages ranged from 55-72. Amy Adams was good, but Timberlake even more enjoyable.

I am surprised by the number of negative ratings for this movie. I found the acting to be very good. The female lead is a natural and there is nothing forced in her line delivery or affect. I didn't know anything about Justin Timberlake except that I was not a fan of his music until I saw him on SNL and thought he was good at delivering comedy and not a bad actor. He did a nice job in this film.
Clint Eastwood has become a bit stiff in his old age, but he IS Clint Eastwood and I like him.
Baseball fans will enjoy the plot and those looking for a love story and family dynamics story will like it. It is a good film without being too corny. It is appropriate for most age groups (perhaps over the age of 13 or so). There is no sex, but some bad language.
Go see it.

I went into this movie thinking it would be an at best a D+ dud as Clint Eastwood is aging rapidly! ( although I still LOVE him!) I was pleasantly surprised with how good the movie was AND made me feel upon leaving! Clint Eastwood STILL HAS IT even at his tender older age!! Even though his gruff character was a little depressive and grim alot of the time (but comical at the same time), he pulled it off making it a 'feel good' movie! I was glad I made the choice to go see it and I recommend it to all!
