TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE - REVIEW
As we close out MLB's regular season play, we know more people begin to start watching games. It was a great marketing move to releases Trouble with a Curve during the fall classic as it is a mans themed chick flick, if that is possible. But it is about baseball after all as well a daughter who is dealing with an aging father.
A Lake of the Pines resident who recently took his wife to see the film at the Auburn 8 Cinemas stated the following....
" It's a good date night movie for both the man and woman. For the men, it's funny, a lot of baseball analogy, good story line and Client Eastwood can play one grumpy old man. Over all this keeps you into the movie. You are right to assume this is a chick flick, but there's enough baseball lingo which will keep the men's attention. I liked the movie. "
This quote comes from a guy who loves the sport, has a child who currently plays baseball as well as plays softball himself.
So if you are looking for a sports film which you can take your wife or girlfriend to this is a great option. It is not Bull Durham and I'm sure Clint would never wear women's underpants regardless of the plot line.
There is also an opportunity to parlay your girls new found love of this film into a post season run. Keep talking to her about the film all the way through the playoffs and you might not get as much grief about sitting on the couch for hours on end for the next month or so.
