DVD & Blu-ray review: Trouble with the Curve (12)

Robert Lorenz DVD/ Blu-ray (109mins)

"Anyone who uses computers doesn't know a damn thing about this game.” Clint Eastwood plays another grouchy octogenarian in this hokey baseball drama.

He's a veteran scout, Gus, whose eyesight is deteriorating and whose employers are considering putting him out to pasture. Enter his estranged and successful daughter (Amy Adams, the highlight here), who helps her insensitive pa scout out a potential star. Gentle, undemanding and a teensy bit dull.
