More Info:
  • Justin Chang

    A defiantly analog rejoinder to last year's tech-savvy baseball drama, "Moneyball," Robert Lorenz's square but sturdy directing debut rests on the wonderfully spiky chemistry between Eastwood and Amy Adams.

    Variety Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Eastwood is vastly entertaining as an old-fashioned scout who disdains computers and fancy statistical charts in favor of his own time-tested instincts.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Clint Eastwood and a superb cast hit it out of the park in Trouble With The Curve, a great entertainment filled with heart, humor, family drama and fantastic acting.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Wholly predictable yet serenely enjoyable.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    In Trouble With The Curve, Eastwood plays a reminder of an older way of doing things, a professional whose likes the world won't see again once he's gone. The role isn't much of a stretch.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Trouble With the Curve isn't a great sports film, like Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby" (2004). But it's a superior entertainment, moving down somewhat predictable paths with an authenticity and humanity that appeals.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Regrettably, it is not a home run or a perfect game, but it isn't a wild throw, an errant bunt or a dropped fly ball either. Trouble With the Curve is either an off-speed pitch that just catches the edge of the strike zone or a bloop single lofted into right field. The runner is safe. The movie is too.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    This amiable, old-fashioned film is no world-beater, but it underlines why, appearances with empty chairs excepted, it is always a pleasure to see this man on the screen.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    If the modest and moving Trouble With the Curve won't overwhelm anybody, it's still an engaging winner, like a junk-ball pitcher who stays in the bigs on grit and heart.

    Time Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Here is the irony: Trouble With the Curve embodies all of the values it espouses - it is an old-fashioned, proficient, amiable, and decent movie - but it has no instinct.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    What you get in Trouble with the Curve is standard-issue late-career Eastwoodiana. The growl, the snarl, the crotchetiness are already familiar to us from "Million Dollar Baby" (2004) and "Gran Torino" (2009), his last appearance as an actor.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Predictable but appealing, Trouble with the Curve is the latest of Clint Eastwood's odes to old-fashioned attitudes and virtues.

    NPR Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Baseball movies tend to be lyrical, deeply felt, aggressively metaphorical and (consequently) terrible, but Trouble With the Curve has something most others lack: Eastwood's superb, cruel sense of humor, which reaches all the way back to "Every Which Way But Loose."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The good news is that this daddy/daughter reconciliation story connects with the ball. The not-so-good: It's a blooper.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Eastwood and Adams are just so much damn fun to watch.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The script is by first-timer Randy Brown, but it feels as if it were spit out by one of the assistant GM's computers, so regular are its beats and revelations.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark Dinning

    You'll know exactly where it's going, but it still has Clint doing full-on-cranky and is a fun finger-up at corporate suits the world over.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Saluting both America's national pastime and its oldest working icon, Curve is a solid heart-tugger that plays with a straight bat when it comes to plot, character and message.

    Total Film Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    As cheap as the whole set-up is, the actors make wonderful music together - even if there's not much left of Eastwood's vocal cords except a handful of dust.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Ends up being the kind of movie we don't see a whole lot anymore: an emotionally grounded and quietly meaningful crowd-pleaser that functions as a lovely antidote to the recently ended summer blockbuster season.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    Trouble With The Curve is an ode to the old ways of doing things, both in terms of acting and baseball.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Trouble With the Curve is easily digestible in chunks – if it were a CBS show, it'd be called "Postseason With Morrie" - and it has an affectionate view of grubby motels, greasy diners and small-town scoreboards.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There is something to be said for giving people what they want, but there are no surprises in Randy Brown's script, and Lorenz plays it safe. It's feel-good stuff; you wonder what Eastwood, a terrific director, might have done with it behind the camera.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Adams gets a delectable onscreen partner in Justin Timberlake as a novice scout who takes an interest in Mickey. Even the old half-naked-moonlight-swim gambit feels fresh with these two involved.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Director Robert Lorenz makes a nondescript debut, after assisting Eastwood on several of his directing gigs. The student hasn't learned much from the teacher about economic storytelling or deflecting schmaltz.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This is a character we have seen a million times before and Eastwood brings little that's new or original to the part. The movie as a whole can be labeled with the same criticism.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Trouble With the Curve presents viewers with a frustrating change-up: What promised to be a modest, refreshingly unforced little comedy turns out to be low energy to a fault.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Unfortunately even a clogging Timberlake can't stop the movie's march to a conveniently happy ending. Nor can he block the flow of psychobabble. It's enough to make any fan beg: Play ball. Please.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Its title notwithstanding, there's nothing that remotely approaches a narrative curve ball in this tired saga of an aging baseball scout.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Trouble With the Curve finally finds its zone when Gus and Mickey find the young baseball prodigy they've been looking for. That doesn't happen until the narrative's last inning, though, too late to save the movie. I'd call it "Neanderthalball."

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Everything about Trouble With the Curve is as streamlined and hollow as a Wiffle Ball bat.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Trouble With the Curve has a problem tipping its pitches.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Adams is absolutely winning in this role, which requires her to be a tough-as-nails attorney, grownup tomboy, and psychologically scarred adult. And she makes a good foil for Eastwood, though it's often uncomfortable to see the actor going through melodramatic paces.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    In the often illustrious career oeuvre of Clint Eastwood, Trouble with the Curve is a minor entry, a cinematic footnote.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    One of the most lifeless and predictable movies you're likely to see this year.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Even those who don't know a foul tip from a chicken wing will be able to spot the desperate plays.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Clint has a script. Actually, Clint has too much script, one of those schematic by-the-number jobs that telegraphs its every pitch.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Clint Eastwood makes his infamous chair speech look like chapter one of a season of self-parody.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Benjamin Wright

    Lacking narrative momentum, saddled with thin characterizations and uninspired plotting, Trouble With The Curve should've stayed on the bench.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Denby

    The intricate baseball knowledge that gets passed back and forth among the characters in Trouble with the Curve is much more interesting than the moral simplicities that the movie offers. [8 Oct. 2012, p.87]
