Tim's Review of Hope Springs
What an unfortunate waste of my time this was. It was NOT a comedy, and hardly caused a smile, laugh, tear, or any sort of feeling except wonder (as to why they agreed to make this film.) Steve Carell is normally a funny guy--not here. His part was dead on arrival and could have been played by anyone. It made me long for a well-done film with older stars like Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or even a light and funny romcom like Something's Gotta Give. This was forgettable and unnecessary.
