Well written and acted film, best appreciated by mature aged audiences.

It's refreshing when I see movies as well-written, acted and touching as "Hope Springs." While the story has a bit of a Hollywood ending, any evidence of Hollywood cheese is removed from the perfect casting. Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell add a level of authenticity to the emotions of these characters that make this film nearly perfect. The acting is about as good as it gets. As an old married guy myself, I couldn't help but smile even through the ending credits as this sweet story came to a close.

It is too slow for its own good, but the charming performances of Streep and Jones are enough to hold the picture, and the situations allow some honest laughs with flushed cheeks.

A romantic comedy this certainly was not. Most of the movie was actually dully and achingly depressing. Thankfully there were enough redeeming moments to take away that feeling of utter hopelessness. Some well-placed cameos by Elisabeth Shue and Mimi Rogers helped as well.

a couple of curmudgeons wine for a few hours and depress me. Great actors, terrible script

Not exactly in my wheelhouse, but nonetheless a pretty good movie. Tommy Lee Jones is good at being cranky, lol. Streep is good of course, and sort of a departure for her (no accents).

i could not stand this slow plodding nonsense--i was waiting for the corgies
for something of value , but ran out of patience.

Tommy was hysterical as an old curmudgeon but something was missing in the story. It seemed contrived and shallow. Good entertainment but hard to take seriously. Streep, as usual, was outstanding, given what she had to work with. Carrell was ok, but again, a shallow role. They've all had better roles, times are tough, I guess!

It's great to watch Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones have a little fun but there is also a sad and sweet elements to this movie.

Meryl Streep is good. She is really really really good. The movie, not so much.

Great chemistry between all three leads and it's nice to see a film trying to take it's subject matter seriously. That's not to say that there isn't humour here but no-one plays anything for laughs. You can't help but egg the couple on as they try to save their marriage and although some couples may find this a bit close to home it's a lovely film.

Look at a relationship that's lost its fire and how the couple eventually finds their way back to each other.

Could have been better

Watching Hope Springs is a very theraputic experience in every sense of the word. It forces you to think, gives you a good laugh and takes an approach to relationships seldom tackled by Hollywood. In addition, I didn't want to slap Steve Carrell once in this film, quite a mean feat for him.

Meryl Streep is beautiful & funny & lovely, great music, very charming film.

"Hope Springs" examines the struggles of long term relationships in a endearing manner, where its plot and themes are heavily reliant, yet successfully expressed by the committed performances from Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
