Clint Eastwood : Gus
Amy Adams : Mickey
Justin Timberlake : Johnny
John Goodman : Pete Klein
“What are you all staring at? I’m not a pole dancer.”
Clint Eastwood (Gus) as a baseball scout. A moody old grumpy guy who seemingly only has eyes for baseball. He’s getting older and his eyes are getting dramatically worse. So his best friend (nice guest star by John Goodman) asks Gus’s daughter to assist her father. The new generation in the club where Gus is under contract, tries to relieve Gus. Matthew Lillard, of course, plays the role of the annoying smart ass. I don’t know why, but this guy just has the charisma to put down such an annoying brat
Conclusion : a beautifull entertaining romantic drama.
