Baseball coordinator Aimee McDaniel said of working on this movie: "We worked with Amy Adams for four or five days, and by the end of that time, she looked like she'd been catching baseballs her whole life. To have an actress of that caliber just throw herself into something like that made my job easy. And the rest of the cast was equally devoted". See more »
While Mickey sits working on her laptop in the motel, she is clearly typing on the keyboard, but the text on the screen is not moving at all. 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.
