The latest baseball-is-America-and-America-is-baseball movie is Trouble with the Curve, and it's about a curmudgeonly, Clint Eastwood-y baseball scout played by Clint Eastwood whose deteriorating vision interferes with his ability to assess a young pitcher's ability to craftily hurl a baseball. Life lessons ensue. Justin Timberlake shows up, takes his shirt off, and jumps in a lake, à la Freddie Prinze, Jr. in another classic American baseball movie, Summer Catch. I am of the opinion that Clint Eastwood shouldn't have appeared in another movie after Gran Torino because The Man With No Name is now dead, but whatever — life isn't fair and Paint Your Wagon is proof that not everyone is perfect.
