I am an absolute sucker for a baseball movie. this one is a good mix of drama and comedy with baseball. I liked that it took a different view of the game. Eastwood plays his usual grumpy old guy persona. Adams works well with Eastwood in their scenes together. Timberlake brings a nice performance but that story line could have been completely eliminated to develop more between Eastwood and Adams. Overall, a well written and directed film.
This is one of those films that is so horrible but you've invested enough time that you have to finish this unbearable movie. The story is extremely ridiculous. Almost feels like it wasn't finished being written but the movie was made anyway. So many holes in the story.
