Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gus refuses to be benched for what could be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveries, revealing long held truths about their past and present that could change their future.




  • Loved it!

    Excellent, engaging film. Easy to watch again and again. All the actors did an excellent job. Nobody has mentioned how great the kid that they were all scouting did at portraying an arrogant punk. So funny!

    This is a TERRIFIC movie. Eastwood is classic, and Timberlake and Adams make a dream team! The plot is heartwarming, and the future success of a baseball faranchise keeps you coming back. A must see.

    These are the movies I grew up with. No CGI but a good story told very well through Clint Eastwood. Good baseball scenes and great acting, thats what makes a good movie and that's why "Trouble With The Curve", gets my vote for a very good movie, definitely worth seeing at the theater or home. Oh, The reason Justin Timberlake keeps getting movies is because he can act.

    Great movie. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed the story. When I saw the previews many months back, I knew it would be one to watch.
