Trouble With the Curve

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Clint Eastwood plays Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout whose eyes are failing and whose contract is up. Amy Adams, who is getting better by the movie, plays Gus’ workaholic lawyer daughter, Mickey, who has daddy issues. Mickey joins Gus in North Carolina and attracts the eye of another scout and former player, played by Justin Timberlake. A wholly predictable and yet serenely enjoyable film.

It’s the details that stand out whenever a classic film is converted to 3-D. With Finding Nemo 3D, the shimmering sea surface, the scratches on the lens of a diver’s goggles and the smudge marks Nemo the clown fish makes when he mashes against the glass wall of an aquarium all pop off the screen in the reissue of Pixar’s undisputed masterpiece. The fish seem to float between the surface of the screen and the deep-blue underwater backgrounds of the South Pacific, an effect even more pronounced in 3-D.
