plot: A baseball scout's contract is about to end, and if he wants to have it renewed, he needs to sign the next big thing. Only he's starting to go blind, so his daughter goes with him on a week long scouting trip.
You sort of have an idea right off what's going to happen here. Father and Daughter who don't really get along are forced to do so. Daughter meets another baseball player and ends up in a relationship with him, while struggling with the job she is suppose to be doing that she took time away from to help her dad.
I don't know a thing about baseball, and no this movie did not make me want to learn anything about the sport.
It was a cute movie, and one of the better ones I've seen over the years about baseball. This is Amy Adams movie all the way. And if you watch this back to back with Julie/Julia, you can see why she's becoming someone to hold the lead.
what do i think i learned from this film?
People will disappoint you no matter what. The question is, will you disappoint yourself?
