  • Summary: These are no doubt two of the best actors that has ever been filmed for movies. I rented it and stayed up all night and watched it 3 times, the Movie tended to lean towards typical long time marriages and it really makes you think. I Love it, I plan to buy the DVD and the Movie Sountrack CD, it's not often this type of movie crosses my path. I learned a lot from the movie and it really makes me stop and think what am I contributing to my marriage.

Some "close to the bone" truths

  • Summary: Yes, I suspect many will recognise aspects of life as portrayed in this movie. Worth seeing, reasonably funny and a little thought provoking.

Realistic and Refreshing

BrionyJae, Flicks

  • Summary: This film took your typical rom-com, and tipped it on its head. And it succeeded! There were just so many refreshing elements of this film, with the storyline continually going against the norm. Even to the point where I actually believed there wouldn't be a happy ending! (There was, of course.

Excellent movie with a realistic scenario

RW, Flicks

  • Summary: I totally disagree with the Flicks critic, and I belong to the relevant age group. Streep and Jones are outstanding, and Carell is also very good. This movie got a pretty good overall rating at Rotten Tomatoes (73%), and the hostile reviews of some critics, including the above, probably say more about the critics themselves than they do about the tone and style of the film.

Meh

Chris-Goodwin, Flicks
28 January 2013
  • Summary: Tommy Lee Jones is a great actor, Merryl Streep is a great actor... But two great actors don't make a great film. I did wonder if Tommy had always wanted to get it on with Meryl and when this script appeared he finally got to tick it off his bucket list. Both Jones and Streep's characters are painful and annoying and Steve Carell (who I had started to warm to after Crazy, Stupid Love) is dull as the couples councellor in the only roll that could have added a little...

How To Spice Up A Marrage

GrahamP, Flicks
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I am having trouble writing this review. It will appeal to some with laugh out loud moments which I enjoyed.The adult comedy was very good.The success of the film depended on the casting of the charactors.Both Streep and Jones do a very good job and carried the story well. On the other side it was dull at times with many visits to the therapist.Steve Carell was playing a serious and intelligent counselor.

Great actors but could have been better

Chonny, Flicks

  • Summary: Actors were great but the story was a bit slow, it did have its funny moments though and kept me entertained. The was a bit much sitting around doing nothing to keep this movie really entertaining.

A well cast film

Weds_Loafers, Flicks
28 January 2013
  • Summary: This week 8 of us (6M, 2F) went to see "Hope Springs". The movie features Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carrell, all playing roles outside their normal comfort zone. Most of the scenes take place in 3 locations only - the family home of 31 years, the couple counsellor's office and the motel where Kay and Arnold are staying in the town of Hope Springs (a propitious name!).
