Baseball is my favorite sport (it’s the only one I ever watch on TV, anyway), and of course that is only accentuated by the fact that some of the best sports films have been based on America’s great pastime. Come on, I literally grew up watching The Sandlot, and Moneyball was very high on my list of my favorite films of 2011. Naturally, I became excited for Trouble with the Curve simply because it is a baseball movie. Still, when I learned that the main character would be played by the legendary Clint Eastwood while being supported by Amy Adams, I was immediately sold. Is this film the Moneyball for 2012, or does Trouble with the Curve end up being struck out?
