Amy Adams and Clint Eastwood star in a film about love, life and family.
So, the reviews are in for Robert Lorenz’s ‘Trouble With the Curve’, which follows according to IMDB: ‘an ailing baseball scout [Eastwood] in his twilight years takes his daughter [Adams] on one last recruiting trip’
Have a look at what the critics around the world had to say about this film:
Robert Collin of London’s The Daily Telegraph said:
“The trouble with Trouble with the Curve is that it contains no curves and precious little trouble.”
David Edward of the Scottish Daily Record said:
“Eastwood’s character lurches from sentimentality to outright cruelty, Adams lacks the steel to bring her character to life and the finale is horribly contrived.”
Paul Whitington of the Irish Independent said:
“Adams, it has to be said, is very good in a role that might have remained one dimensional in less skilled hands, but battles alone against a rising tide of mawkishness and lame jokes.”
Peter Bradshaw of the London The Guardian said:
“But it’s sentimental and glutinous, and the ending is almost surreal in its contrivance and unbelievability.”
What do you think? Will you be heading down to your local cinema to see this film?
