When Mickey enters the smokey kitchen, she opens both windows to the same level as the blinds. As the scene ends and Mickey is walking out, there is a shot of Gus standing in the kitchen door with the windows behind him. The windows are now several inches below the level of the blinds. See more »

Okay, come on now. Come on, boy. Let's not take your sweet-ass time about this. Jesus. Okay, that's it... Ah, good. Don't laugh, I outlived you, you little bastard.

"Trouble With The Curve" is a wonderful film. The casting, acting, writing, direction, were all superb. The location scenery was beautiful.
Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game, he plays his part effortlessly. And, OMG, Amy Adams was unbelievable, she is amazing and beautiful, she deserves the Oscar for this film. The chemistry between Clint and Amy was perfect.
This is not a baseball movie, it is a father-daughter film in the fashion of "On Golden Pond". It will make you laugh, think and cry.
Another Clint Eastwood film that Hollywood can be proud of. Go see it.
