"Trouble With The Curve" starring Clint Eastwood opened in theaters around the country and here in Central Georgia. Parts of the movie were filmed in Macon at local bar, Cheers, and Luther Williams field.
While the critic reviews have been mixed, some Central Georgians that we caught up with say this movie was a home run.
The first showing at Macon's AmStar theater started just after 1 pm. 13WMAZ talked to some of the folks that couldn't wait to see the movie.
"I guess I loved it because it was real and it was like the typical dysfunctional American family," said Angie Cheek of Lakemont. "The thing is that miscommunication where he is trying to protect her and she sees it as abandonment and how all those years they didn't understand each other."
Bobby Chastain of Macon says even if you aren't a big fan of baseball, you will enjoy the movie.
"It was good. It had a little bit of baseball in it, but a lot of it was people interacting, learning relationships. It made you think about baseball, but it also made you think about real people involved in real things," said Chastain.
Evelyn Watson of Monroe County says she and her husband are longtime Clint Eastwood fans and that the film was the perfect vehicle for one of their favorite movie stars.
"I loved it. It was fabulous. It's a well-worth movie to go see. This is a must-see movie," said Watson.
