Warner Bros. has officially announced the Blu-ray release of director Robert Lorenz's Trouble with the Curve, starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Matthew Lillard. The baseball drama arrives on Blu-ray December 18th.
Gus Lobel (Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gusówho can tell a pitch just by the crack of the batórefuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his.
Really hope this is the last time we have to watch that senile old clown in a movie, I think we've seen enough of the same grumpy old man character he plays film after film after film, at least he didn't direct this one I guess, the one positive I can think of for Trouble with the Curve.
