Overview

An aging baseball scout (Clint Eastwood) with failing sight hits the road with his estranged daughter (Amy Adams) to pursue a promising young ballplayer, and they learn just how much they have in common as they make their way from Georgia to North Carolina in this sports drama produced and directed by frequent Eastwood collaborator Robert Lorenz. For decades, Gus Lobel (Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in Major League Baseball. But these days his eyes just aren't what they used to be, and as a phenomenal young batter enters the draft, the owners of the Atlanta Braves cast a shadow of doubt over Gus' judgment. Meanwhile, his daughter Mickey ( Adams) is an aspiring partner at a major Atlanta law firm. In the wake of his wife's death, Gus sent Mickey away, and their relationship has been strained ever since. But she knows a thing or two about baseball, and recognizing that her father's job is in jeopardy, she decides to help him -- even at the risk of derailing her own career. Now, throwing caution to the wind (and ignoring her gruff father's objections), Mickey joins Gus for a scouting trip that could keep him in the game until he's ready to retire, as well as repair a father/daughter relationship that once seemed all but lost. Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Robert Patrick, and Matthew Lillard co-star.

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.
