William Hellmuth's rating of the film Trouble with the Curve

I love Eastwood, and this movie had its few good moments (all between Eastwood and Adams), but ultimately it struck me as a great story/idea wasted by a rookie director with no coherent vision. It felt like Lorenz wasn't sure what kind of movie he wanted to make. The comedy bits felt out of place and almost always fell flat, while the rest of the simple plot was spoon fed to you. Shame to waste Eastwood like this.
