On Demand movie highlights

TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: All New Movies) A congenial but distressingly formulaic drama about an aging baseball scout (Clint Eastwood) and his last season on the road. Eastwood lets his longtime producer Robert Lorenz take a crack at directing, which is nice. So’s the movie, but that doesn’t mean it’s very good. With Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake. (PG-13; runs through May 30)

BRIDESMAIDS

(HBO on Comcast) A wedding comedy with Kristen Wiig as a woman in a funk who starts to freak out when her best friend (Maya Rudolph) gets married. The movie, which Wiig co-wrote and Paul Feig directed, seems bound to drown in loopy gags and aggressive misadventure. But at its core is the story of the strains a wedding puts on some friendships. That feels as true as all the gross business is funny. (R; runs through May 31)

ATTACK THE BLOCK ½

(Starz on Comcast) Amateurishly made alien-invasion silliness set in a working-class London high-rise. But the script is full of little surprises. Writer-director Joe Cornish is going for something that’s hard to do: a social satire of movie genres. His filmmaking is something else. It’s hard to tell whether the audience is laughing at bad technique or with it. (R; runs through June 8)
