Release Date: 21-Sep-2012
Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader does an impression of Clint Eastwood where his pants are pulled way up, he growls a lot and says things that old angry men would say. Clint Eastwood’s character in Trouble With The Curve, is an impression of Bill Hader doing an impression of Clint Eastwood. He growls, has his pants pulled up high, and says things that an angry old man would say. He is put next to Amy Adams playing his daughter and they fail to communicate and do not see eye to eye, as with all families in movies.
There is nothing wrong with Trouble With The Curve, it is a simple story, about baseball, family discovery and the people you do not choose. That is all this movie is though. There is nothing outside of the story you have seen in the previews already. It doesn’t stray from it’s predictability in any way. Which is fine, but it just felt a little slow and a little old. I feel like this is the prefect movie for older people who never have movies made for them anymore. They will relate to growling Clint and unless your parents are pushing 80, you might not have that experience yet.
I don’t think you need to run out and see this one in the theater. It just sits there and will be on TV for the next 20 years. You will catch it sometime on a Sunday when you are doing laundry and you will get to the end and say, well that was a nice movie, and forget you ever saw it.
