Trouble with the Curve

From: Google 

I spent the weekend with my boyfriend, Kevin, and we went to go see the movie Trouble with the Curve. I hadn't heard of it until we decided that day that we were going to the movies. He insisted that it was going to be a good movie because it had the Braves in it (which is his favorite MLB team). So we went and I really enjoyed it! I thought the main focus was going to be be baseball, but it was more on the relationship between a father and daughter. Clint Eastewood, Justin Timberlake, and Amy Adams were some of the main characters. Below is a description of the movie. 

Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gus-who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat-refuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. -- (C) Warner Bros from Rotten Tomatoes

This is what we looked like on the way to the movie.....

Aren't we cute in our matching Braves shirts?!
