    Eastwood and Adams are just so much damn fun to watch. show more

    Trouble With the Curve has a problem tipping its pitches. show more

    Its title notwithstanding, there's nothing that remotely approaches a narrative curve ball in this tired saga of an aging baseball scout. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Trouble With the Curve finally finds its zone when Gus and Mickey find the young baseball prodigy they've been looking for. That doesn't happen until the narrative's last inning, though, too late to save the movie. I'd call it "Neanderthalball." show more

    The good news is that this daddy/daughter reconciliation story connects with the ball. The not-so-good: It's a blooper. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Trouble With the Curve is easily digestible in chunks – if it were a CBS show, it'd be called "Postseason With Morrie" - and it has an affectionate view of grubby motels, greasy diners and small-town scoreboards. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Eastwood is vastly entertaining as an old-fashioned scout who disdains computers and fancy statistical charts in favor of his own time-tested instincts. show more

    Trouble With The Curve is an ode to the old ways of doing things, both in terms of acting and baseball. show more

    Mark Jenkins NPR

    Predictable but appealing, Trouble with the Curve is the latest of Clint Eastwood's odes to old-fashioned attitudes and virtues. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Trouble With the Curve isn't a great sports film, like Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby" (2004). But it's a superior entertainment, moving down somewhat predictable paths with an authenticity and humanity that appeals. show more

    there is something about this film. is it hokey? maybe a little, but i was totally absorbed in the story, in the characters, in the pain of these people, this is something special..a GREAT friday night movie..i wish i could find more movies like this.And i like that we can feel the resentment coming off of amy adams, how frustrated she is..5 stars all the way! call it whatever you like, i have 111 minutes of pure enjoyment, and i didn\'t expect to love it

    The most boring and predictable movie I\'ve ever seen. I usually LOVE all Clint\'s movies, but this one was a bummer.

    This was an awesome movie. The storyline was very engaging and the acting was superb! I would never be influenced by the so-called critic reviews because the majority of the time they do not know what they are talking about. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and you will too!
