‘Trouble with the Curve’ Goes Straight to the Heart

TroubleWithTheCurve.jpgTrouble with the Curve stars Clint Eastwood doing what he does so well: playing a crusty old man. Likeable, of course. In fact, KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Anthony Aranda, age 10, says Eastwood’s character, Gus, is his favorite in this movie. “[H]e is a good man that people should trust. He knows a lot about baseball and has a good heart.”

To older audiences, the storyline may be predictable and even familiar, but Trouble with the Curve has plenty of heart throughout to give it its own lifestrength. And, Anthony says, “The movie also has really good chemistry. Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams [who plays Gus’s daughter, Mickey] work very well together.”

Trouble with the Curve is great and funny. It is kind of like an older movie meant for older audiences, but I still think it is great.

This movie is about a man named Gus who is a baseball talent scout but he is losing his sight. He is old-fashioned and always relied on his sight and a feeling to pick good baseball players. Without his sight, he doesn’t know how to scout, and even though he is having trouble he won’t ask for help. His daughter comes to help him anyway and they have a good time together, but bad things happen, too.
 
The main characters in the movie are Gus and Mickey. Gus is played by Clint Eastwood and Mickey is played by Amy Adams. Amy Adams is in another movie that my little sister loves, called Enchanted, and I also really like her in The Muppets. My favorite character in this movie is Gus because he is a good man that people should trust. He knows a lot about baseball and has a good heart.

The movie also has really good chemistry. Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams work very well together. He kind of seems like a grumpy old man and she is kind of sweet.

My favorite part in this movie is when Mickey meets a new guy who can throw a really good curve ball and, since she really loves baseball, they become really good friends.

I would recommend this movie for ages 10 and up because my brother says that the movie was a little too old for him and he’s seven. The movie also has some inappropriate language and situations that are too old for kids under 10.

Go out and see this movie in theaters; it comes out on September 21st.
