"Trouble With the Curve" is a movie that feels custom-made for baseball fans, and not just because it's set in the world of big-league scouting. Rather, it's because it plays out with the same dignified elegance of a summer classic.

That is to say, it's a movie for those who prefer the measured chess game of baseball over the explosive violence of certain other pastimes. It's for those who admire thoughtfulness over blunt-force trauma. It's for those who appreciate the sharp, satisfying thwack of horsehide hitting leather, as opposed to outbursts of chaos and crunching bones. It's for those who favor the thrilling drama of pennant races over the horrifying drama of bodies lying unconscious on the ground.

"Trouble With the Curve" also is for those who appreciate the sports-as-life metaphor, a film not so much about the game as it is about the people behind the game, a crowd-pleasing human drama set against the backdrop of ballparks and spring days.

In that regard, director Robert Lorenz's film opens today (Sept. 21) as this year's "Moneyball" -- which in turn arrived as last year's "The Blind Side." Sure, it might be a bit less flashy than those Oscar nominees by almost every measure -- if "Moneyball" was a stand-up triple, "Trouble With the Curve" is a ground-rule double -- but predictabilities aside, it's an enjoyable and heart-warming trip round the bases in its own right.

The cast is the key to the whole thing, anchored by Clint Eastwood, once more playing the grizzled old cuss whom audiences so seem to appreciate. Familiar though the role is, it's always fun to watch Eastwood growl and snap at the camera.

Unlike past iterations, this version of his grumpy old man wields no firearms. Nor does he talk to an invisible chair. (He does kick a coffee table, though. Not sure what political statement I should read into that.) Rather, he plays an aging baseball scout named Gus, a predictably old-school sort whose career with the Atlanta Braves darn near predates pinstripes.

There are those within the organization, however -- mostly whippersnappers and snivelers -- who consider him a relic, who think that computers and statistics trump experience and instinct, and that Gus' time is past. That makes him that much more determined to hide his potentially career-ending little secret: His eyesight is going.

When he's dispatched to find out if an up-and-coming talent is worth a first-round draft pick, the stakes are as high as they've ever been. Enter Amy Adams, who plays Mickey, Gus' adult daughter who is guilted into tagging along, no matter how much he insists he doesn't need help.

But the brassy Mickey is a far cry from the doe-eyed ingenue Adams is better known for playing. Rather, she's every bit as tough and stubborn as her old man -- a role she steps into with surprising ease -- so she's not easily cowed. It's fun to see them butt heads, but what's more, her presence on the scouting trip sets up the emotional heart of the story, as Gus and Mickey have some long-festering issues to work out.
