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.

What a wonderful, caring, delight. The cast is fantastic, I didn't think Clint Eastwood could outdo his performance in Grand Turino but he managed it once again! What a fabulous movie.

Clint Eastwood did not disappoint me. He was great in this movie. The only part of the movie I didn't like and felt was unnecessary was the first scene. The rest of the movie was great.. I enjoyed seeing John Goodman. His part wasn't too big, but he was sweet & fuzzy..
It was a good movie for all ages

Some critics and reviewers need to separate their political views from a movie review! The movie is an all round movie for many viewers not just a select audience. It's about people that work in baseball and their family relationship not just baseball. All the actors delivered their characters just as they should have. You will see the club,feel for the loss, dislike the jerk, and hope for healing and love. The movie was just the right combo of drama, comedy and love with enough baseball thrown in to satisfy baseball fans (not fanatics). The only bad thing about the movie is a line that mentioned the Kardashian family. I liked this movie so much I will buy it when it comes out on DVD.
