TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE (2012) starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake was an easy choice for me. For over half a decade, Clint has proven to be a profitable box office draw, and once again he did not disappoint. While combining the life of an aging baseball scout with the painful missteps of an evolving father-daughter relationship, the plot drew me in and I was able to sit back and comfortably enjoy the ride. A two hour journey tempered with tests of loyalty, a concept popular in many Eastwood dramas.

Sadly, I think Clint Eastwood's days as a leading actor may be drawing to a close. At 83 years of age, he's obviously fighting to project his voice, many of his scenes delivered in a little more than a struggled whisper. Playing a father to a 33 year old daughter was also a bit of a stretch...but Clint's amazing talents overshadow any of the questionable casting.

Enjoy the movie; we may never know when it will be this legend's last performance. My husband and I both recommend this movie.

Although TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE was an early favorite for a Best Actor nod in 2013, Clint Eastwood was ultimately snubbed by the Academy. Drama, 111 mins, PG-13 **** 4 stars out of 5
