Trouble with the Curve

COLIN COVERT | Updated 9/27/2012

★★★ 1/2 out of four stars "Trouble With the Curve" is an absolute home run, the total package of charming romantic comedy, poignant family drama and superb acting. Clint Eastwood gives what may be the best performance of his career as Gus Lobel, a gruff, widowed talent scout for the Atlanta Braves. His instincts for the human dimensions of the game are still top-notch. His relationship with his neglected daughter Mickey (Amy Adams), a no-nonsense attorney, not so much. (Rated PG-13.)
