Trouble With The Curve (2012)

Trouble With The Curve (2012)
Directed by: Rebert Lorenz
Country: USA

Review: 1993 was the last year that Clint Eastwood acted in a movie from a director other than himself. He did it again in “Trouble With The Curve”, the directorial debut from Robert Lorenz, who in turn is a longtime collaborator in the movies directed by Mr. Eastwood (frequently as producer or assistant director). The result did not match my expectations. It reminded me the plot of “Moneyball”, where technology is discussed among baseball scouts and managers, mixed with a small taste of the grumpiness shown by “Gran Torino’s” main character. However, it does not share the quality of those two noteworthy films. The story is feeble, wrapped in sentimentalism and making use of a romance condemned to banality. So, the trouble here isn’t with the curve, or with Clint Eastwood, or even with Lorenz… is the weak plot.
