“Trouble With the Curve”? Nothing ~

If  you’ve read the Ronni Redmond “bio” elsewhere on this blog you already know I have an emotional connection between my love of baseball as it relates to my dad.  Most women and a lot of men probably feel this way and that’s one of the reasons I think this movie is going to be a real hit at the box office.   I’m not a real Clint Eastwood fan and if I had been, his speech at the GOP Convention last month would probably have taken care of that.  No, I don’t really think this movie has anything to do with Clint Eastwood.   Eastwood was the main character, but let’s face it, a lot of salty old guys could have played the part.

“Amy Adams with Clint Eastwood”

Amy Adams is the real star of the film.    I only choked up a few times so didn’t really need a Kleenex,  and the movie’s pretty predictable except for the ending.  I didn’t see it coming and I loved it!

I was surprised that the preliminaries on the “Trouble with the Curve” scored only a 5.5 out of 10.  Not a lot of romantics out there I guess, or maybe patrons are comparing the new baseball movies to last year’s “Moneyball” which isn’t fair ~ Moneyball was a true movie based on a lot of statistics and this movie could be true, but isn’t.  As far as I know it’s just a good old-fashioned chick flick with (base)balls.

The Trouble With the Curve?  If you’re an Amy Adams fan, and even if you’re not, absolutely nothing.

  1. Thank you, Ronni! Enjoyed your review and will now probably go see this movie. Agree with your assessment of Eastwood, but due to my love of baseball, and your favorable review, am now anxious to see this film.

  2. You’ll like the movie David. My hubby wasn’t too thrilled about going, but had to admit he really liked it after the fact. Appreciate your comment ~ Ronni
