Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: I enjoyed ‘Trouble with the Curve’.

    There are a few too many moments of cringe for my liking, renditions of ‘You Are My Sunshine‘ included, but as a whole it’s a solidly entertaining sports flick – with added love drama.

    The cast are the film’s major plus, with Clint Eastwood – in his first strictly acting role since the early 1990s and last to date of review – and Amy Adams naturally sticking out most. Other cast members include Justin Timberlake, Matthew Lillard, John Goodman and Scott Eastwood – the latter shares a scene with his father, which is nice.

    A few different choices by the filmmakers and I’d be rating this a tad higher, but as is it’s a good film – one that is worth a watch.
