If you’ve read the Ronni Redmond “bio” elsewhere on this blog you already know I have an emotional connection between my love of baseball as it relates to my dad. Most women and a lot of men probably feel this way and that’s one of the reasons I think this movie is going to be a real hit at the box office. I’m not a real Clint Eastwood fan and if I had been, his speech at the GOP Convention last month would probably have taken care of that. No, I don’t really think this movie has anything to do with Clint Eastwood. Eastwood was the main character, but let’s face it, a lot of salty old guys could have played the part.
Amy Adams is the real star of the film. I only choked up a few times so didn’t really need a Kleenex, and the movie’s pretty predictable except for the ending. I didn’t see it coming and I loved it!
I was surprised that the preliminaries on the “Trouble with the Curve” scored only a 5.5 out of 10. Not a lot of romantics out there I guess, or maybe patrons are comparing the new baseball movies to last year’s “Moneyball” which isn’t fair ~ Moneyball was a true movie based on a lot of statistics and this movie could be true, but isn’t. As far as I know it’s just a good old-fashioned chick flick with (base)balls.
The Trouble With the Curve? If you’re an Amy Adams fan, and even if you’re not, absolutely nothing.
