Trouble with the Curve Review

I purchased this movie for my father's Christmas gift. I'm a pretty big sports fan and needless to say, baseball is a favorite of mine. When I heard this was a movie about an Atlanta Braves baseball scout featuring Clint Eastwood and Justin Timberlake, I figured I had to see it.
The movie is based off an estranged relationship between father and daughter. My dad and I don't have the slightest thing towards an estranged relationship but I did like the sassy back talk and deep love they share for the game and each other.
This movie is definitely a tear jerker knowing the relationship I share between my dad and myself. The whole movie is a bit slow, but I was on edge the entire time waiting for something bad to happen. Doesn't it always in a sports movie?
I personally could see the foreshadowing from the start. However, it was still a fairly good movie. Doesn't quite compare to Moneyball... but overall worth my money and time.
