The ailing baseball scout in his late taking his daughter with the latest recruiting trip.
I usually do not like movies about sports. I love sports, not just a movie about the sport. That being said, this film is not so much about baseball as it is about the relationship between father and son. It also touched on how technology has taken over the human aspect of scouting for players. This film is a real contrast Moneyball, where technology actually helps in building a team. Gus lobes (Clint Eastwood) is an aging scout for the Atlanta Braves, who is struggling with his vision and front office have doubts about whether he is still up to the job and coming talent macular ; ttir. Because of this suffering, Gus is a grumpy old man that really adds a lot of humor in the film. The nature of his reminds me of the character played by Eastwood in Grand Torino. Mickey's daughter (Amy Adams) discover that his father struggled and caregivers are reluctant to take on a roll after his father on scouting adventures. Incidentally, he knows more about baseball than likely someone else in this film. Johnny Flanagan (Justin Timberlake) is a sports broadcaster candidate fostered by Gus year. Relationship that develops between Mickey (Mickey Mantle was named) and Johnny are fun to watch and give insight into Mickeys reluctance to develop a real relationship with ; anyone. Pete Klein (John Goodman) plays the role of mediator to bring Mickey and GUS together. I really liked unyielding loyalty and trust to Gus. It was also nice to once again see Scott Eastwood (Billy Clark) act with his father. They have acted together in several films, and it was nice to see them spending time with family. I definitely think that the entire cast make this film better and I'm sure it will attract a younger audience to the theater. I do not think this movie is absolutely brilliant, but it was very enjoyable. There are elements of the film that very predictable, but I look forward to seeing it play out. Producer Robert Lorenz can not hit it out of the park (as he did with Million Dollar Baby), but I thought it was Triple play for sure. I recommend that you do not sit on the bench and go out and see this movie. I give this film a green light.
