About 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 refuses to be benched for what could 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. Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveries, revealing long held truths about their past and present that could change their future.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For all its occasional tin ear, Dr Phil dialogue, its contrivances and shortcuts, this remains a fundamentally sound and solid entertainment with a deep-rooted conviction that how we treat each other matters. – Tom Charity,, May 12, 2014

Rotten: Lorenz ... lays in everything methodically, fully, but without much invention or energy; you can imagine each plot development ten minutes before it arrives. – David Denby, New Yorker, Oct 8, 2012

Fresh: The good news is that Eastwood does his thing to perfection, Adams provides the spunky cuteness, and Timberlake couldn't scrub his eager charm off with a Brillo pad if he tried. – John Wildman, Film Comment Magazine, May 12, 2014

Rotten: John Goodman weighs in with a nice cameo as Clint's old boss, but the rest is strictly relegation form. – Anthony Quinn, Independent (UK), May 12, 2014

Slow moving and predictable. We all seen this movie played out a million times. Nothing new. Worth a rent only.


Not going to make your all time best 10. But might squeeze into the top 20.

Winner, watch it.

Trouble With The Plot

"Seinfeld" had to end Mr. Eastwood, and so does your career. Please stop. I'd like to remember the old Clint, not Old Clint.
