If last year, Brad Pitt’s Moneyball showed how tough managing a baseball team is off the field, this year, Trouble with the Curve will trace the journey of a baseball scout Gus Lobel (Eastwood)! Lobel is an aging scout who is given a last chance to prove he still has what it takes to stay in the business!
The trouble, however, is that his eyesight is fading gradually and his bosses are unaware of this fact! That is when his daughter (Amy Adams) comes into play (not to play baseball! Tee-hee)! They both go to scout players in North Carolina and the daughter tries her best to make up for her father’s fading vision!
Not to mention, there’s Justin Timberlake too! He plays Johnny, the scout of the rival team! Nonetheless, there is a past bonhomie between Lobel and Johnny and they’ll realize in the course of things that their camaraderie is still pretty much there!
By now, the film has released in some countries and has received average to above average reviews! Will these reviews anyway stop baseball fanatics from watching this film? We don’t really think so!
Directed by Robert Lorenz, Trouble with the Curve will reportedly release in India this October! Catch the trailer below and sound off in comments!
