When a film opens with the lead character standing in front of his toilet peeing, you know you’re in trouble. Clint Eastwood plays a gruff man named Gus who has a strained relationship with his daughter Mickey. He is aging fast and losing his eye sight too. Since his job is to scout potential MLB players, seeing is a good thing. When his daughter finds out about his problem, she takes some time off work to help her dad during what could be his last assignment. Along the way, they find a common bond and she learns to open up a little and let a young man get close to her.
All of these examples sound like it could make a good family film, unresolved family issues and all. However, for some unknown reason, the filmmakers chose to give them both foul mouths. This frequently occurring tendency in today’s movies makes me want to scream at the powers that be; WHAT ARE YOU THINKING??? An otherwise tender and touching movie is spoiled once again by constant foul language. This is not a family film.
