Loved this movie!   It's nice, pleasant, and you see several stories within - the Father-Daughter relationship; the young woman-young man relationship.

This is not a good flick and certainly isn't a good baseball. It substitutes cliché for substance in an undisguised but poor attack on the concept of Moneyball while it also masquerades as a story of honest personal relationships. It is so predictable you know what will happen to the main characters after the first few scenes. Clint Eastwood, in a role that casts him as a grouchy old man with a heart of gold (gee- have we seen this before?) plays Gus, a veteran scout for the Atlanta Braves. Not only are his methods questioned by a few of the upstart, obnoxious members in the front office, but he's losing his eyesight, too. Ah, but not to fret.. He still is able to detect the ability of a hitter by the sound of his swing!!!! To help him defeat the villains who want him fired, his estranged daughter (Mickey played by Amy Adams), who initially is trying to make partner at an all-male law firm, ironically (but not really) is coaxed into coming along to lend a hand. She, of course, has had a battle of her own, combating the tired jabs of the chauvinist pigs at her office. But none of that will matter. Everything will work out for the best, including a love match between Adams and Justin Timberlake, who plays a rival scout for the Boston Red Sox. Get the picture? This film is sappy, UNREALISTIC (please don't expect the baseball scenes to portray anything resembling what would actually happen in the game), and full of pathetic trite dialogue. If you want a movie that brings you a Hollywood ending without any surprises, then this is for you. Otherwise, take a pitch and let the curve go by.
