Didn't Mind This, Eastwood Is A Relatable Character When He Plays The Angry Old Man. The Other Two Actors Are Added In To Make It Relevant To The Younger Crew, Add In A Coming-Of-Age Story & You've Got Yourself A Pretty Good Flick. Soundtracks Not Too Bad Either.
Robert Lorenz makes his directorial debut with this tight and well written family sport drama. Sure his direction is following the classic rules but it works and gives the film a genuinely great atmosphere. Clint Eastwood is marvelous once again as the grumpy old timer and Amy Adams confirms here how versatile, layered and incredibly talented she is as an actor. The film is very well paced, nicely shot and greatly lit. Definitely a fine entertaining film, taking place in the baseball world.
This is really bad. No discussion necessary. Not one person could make such a puke-fest, this would have to be a focus group foul-up. There is no way any honest person can mix Clint Eastwood with Justin Timberlake. Timberlake has charm? He has a Metro-sexual uppity professional disney kid sociopath vibe that should scare all souls. Add to that, Amy Adams overly down strong female vibe, wow, this will cause a few less babies to be born. Scary office worker passion vibe. Eastwood is always good, but there is no excuse. Run for the Hills
When baseball is not only about seeing the game for what it is but much more when there are many factors to consider. When you just need a feel of the game in order to see what they see when your at plate. When being in the players shoes on and off the field, you see more then the game when they experience ups and downs that effects their performances. When you must take all aspects of the game into consideration in order to see what fits right. When the sounds of the game is just enough to get a feel that your team is in the flow of things, when they are in their groove, hitting sweet spots alright, and are on the swing of things when their on a streak or ruthless to know change is good. When the game has always been reinvented that what you don't see you'll miss out on a great opportunity when others see the game through a perspective that many don't usually see that makes the difference in what players don't see and what coaching can't pass up if winning is the game. When sometimes it's better to have extra pairs of eyes seeing the game as we do that makes seeing the game extra special with those whom you spend it with that makes the game so clear.
* Have enough time in between innings to see the game and life with others that makes the game a Home Run!
A real crowd pleaser. Hard not to leave with a smile on your face with this one. Clint Eastwood's grizzled charisma is as wonderful as ever and Amy Adams serves nicely as his daughter. Was really amusing hearing the two yap at each other, which made for a compelling family development
It's everything you would expect: Clint Eastwood is old, Amy Adams is cute, Justin Timberlake is charming, the script is awful, the direction hilariously uneven, and a bunch of old dudes whine about computers and technology and "stats." Unfortunately, the viewing experience is not of the so-bad-it's-good variety, the sort of variety which includes Blue Chips and Draft Day?it's just really, really bad.
