Trouble with the Curve - Not good reviews from Rotten Tomatoes but I enjoyed it. Just a warm, fuzzy film with another great performance by Clint Eastwood.and good performances by Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake.
Clint gets super grumpy and curmudgeonly in this so-so pic that could be described as the opposite of Moneyball. Instead of the concept that baseball can be won solely by stats and using computers, Eastwood and his daughter (played by Amy Adams) use their instincts and "feel" for the game. Justin Timberlake is shoehorned in as a love interest. One high-point: Nobody plays slimy better than Matthew Lillard.

Amy Adams, one of my favorite actresses. Junebug was were I saw her for the first time, and her first of many to come Academy Award Nominations. She has been Lois Lane, Julia Child's blogging mentor of the future. "The Arrival" most likely will give her another nomination from the Academy. She makes you relate to whomever she is playing. "Trouble with the Curve" with Clint Eastwood & Justin Timberlake makes you think she knows everything about baseball. She is lovely.
