Trouble with the Curve by Robert Lorenz, 2012 (PG-13)

with Clint Eastwood (director of Hereafter, J. Edgar, Invictus), Amy Adams (Julie and Julia, The Master), Justin Timberlake (The Social Network, Bad Teacher), John Goodman (The Artist, You Don't Know Jack, The Princess and the Frog), Matthew Lillard (The Descendants), Robert Patrick, Scott Eastwood, Joe Massingill, Matt Bush (Margaret), Chelcie Ross
Duration: 111 minutes

Slowed by age and failing eyesight, crack baseball scout Gus Lobel takes his grown daughter along as he checks out the final prospect of his career. Along the way, the two renew their bond, and she catches the eye of a young player-turned-scout.

Is Clint Eastwood ever in a good mood in the movies? Anyway, to tell the truth, I found this movie just right, with an interesting topic, four characters with a solid base, three of them pretty much accomplished, the last one (Justin Timberlake) convincing enough to get a career in romantic comedies. I got the very little of my knowledge of baseball from "Moneyball" so this one is making an opposite point, still valid. It is a feel good movie with a happy ending, straight forward... The only thing missing is a spark to make that movie unique, it wasn't memorable...
