On Demand movie highlights

TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE ½

(HBO on Comcast) 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 Aug. 26)

CRAZY IN ALABAMA ½

(Comcast Free Movies) This 1999 film is a pretty good directing debut from Antonio Banderas. He challenges himself by trying to join a couple of disparate story strands, one involving a civil rights struggle, the other involving an abused woman staging her own civil rights struggle by decapitating her husband and taking off for Hollywood. Melanie Griffith carries the film, playing a larger-than-life Southern-gothic lollapalooza. (PG-13; runs through Aug. 15)

DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN

(Comcast Free Movies) The hip, kicky successor to “Diva” and “Repo Man.” Stars Rosanna Arquette and Madonna as two girls who just wanna have fun, and do, exchanging identities and nearly getting themselves killed in the SoHo loft and club scene. (PG-13; runs through Aug. 22)
