Trouble with the Curve Reviews

Benjamin Wright
The Playlist

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

Willamette Week

It is a funny world in which everyone always witlessly says what they mean, every life episode is dubiously calculated for your favorite character's benefit, and every incompetent person is also morally repellent and physically grotesque.

The Aristocrat

It's a shame that Kevin Costner had already taken the title The Postman as it perfectly defines Curve - a film where every single plot development is telegraphed in advance.

Watching this film (agonisingly protracted at almost two hours) is a little like spending time with an curmudgeonly uncle you hate visiting.

HeyUGuys

The efforts to become a crowd-pleaser eventually just result in the film feeling a little condescending, and so lightweight that it's barely worth picking up at all

CraveOnline

A clichéd motion picture with a couple of rip-snortingly bizarre moments that undermine its own credibility as mainstream, comfortable entertainment.

To call this film corny would be an insult to corn.

As fresh as a twelfth inning ballpark hot dog and half as entertaining.

It felt stale, repetitive and I knew everything that was coming. Very disappointing because I love baseball!

Schmoes Know

The biggest problem with this movie is the relationship between Eastwood and his daughter Adams. They keep having these scenes where she wants to heal their relationship but he backs off, and it's so repetitive, she runs away. This happens five times.

Slant Magazine

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

Crudely exploits our attachment to Eastwood as an icon of old warrior machismo, in a mixture of carefully applied grumpy git and the occasional glimpse of cockle-warming reconciliation.

It's all ridiculously overstated and completely obvious, bolstered by lame jokes and flat dialogue.

It will have all but Eastwood's most diehard fans staring at their watches long before the seventh inning stretch.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

If you're surprised when the uptight lawyer and the cocky hotshot start going clog dancing, skinny-dipping and making googly-eyes at each other, then we can presume that you've never seen a movie before.

It's great to see Clint still willing to crack gags and play to the gallery, but the trouble with Randy Brown's debut script is that it curves off target.

Palo Alto Weekly

Slogging through the first 75 minutes of Trouble with the Curve is akin to watching a scoreless baseball game that doesn't get exciting until the ninth inning.

This isn't the worst performance Eastwood has given in his 57-year career, but it's his least inspired in about a decade.
