10. Trouble With the Curve
I know a lot of people are probably going to hate me for having this anywhere on my list, but I don’t care. Sure, you can argue that Trouble With the Curve is a schmaltzy, melodramatic drama with some cheesy, overwritten dialogue, and I wouldn’t be able to say that you’re wrong. Why it works for me, though, is quite simple. It’s a movie about baseball, and it’s a movie about family. Plus, it features three solid performances by Eastwood himself, Amy Adams, and the always charismatic Justin Timberlake. The three of them, in my opinion, elevate the average material on the page.
