'Trouble With the Curve' -- 3 stars

PG-13; 1:50 running time "Scouts, good scouts, are the heart of this game," Gus says defiantly at one point. "Moneyball" be damned! In clear contrast to that film, which was sympathetic to the low-budget team-assembly concept of sabermetrics and computer-crunched analysis of baseball, "Trouble With the Curve" throws its lot in with the intuitive old-timers, here played by Eastwood, Ed Lauter and others ¿ the actual, rumpled humans on the road, sussing out pitchers or hitters or fielders worth a shot. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "Trouble With the Curve" movie review
