Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It's something like Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes From a Marriage," as translated into the universe of the Lifetime Network.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Thursday, August 9, 2012
Fresh: "Hope Springs" is a minor miracle of a movie.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, August 10, 2012
Rotten: These modest virtues are buried under such hard-sell devices as a manipulative muzak score and sitcom-style close-ups that disrupt the narrative momentum.
- Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Thursday, August 9, 2012
A funny, heartwarming and in depth look at long term marriage and the effects of it over the years and what divides them. A compelling, gripping and feel-good experience at the movies and is portrayed by three dynamic stars who all give top-notch performances. Director, David Frankel crafts a sharp, smart and dazzling romantic comedy for adults. Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streeo are outstanding together, they have funny, loving and compelling chemistry that works, they give some wonderful performances. Steve Carell is brilliant, giving a smart, effective and understanding performance. Romantic comedies with this much depth and reality rarely come along.

Even though it's aimed at older people, there was a lot to like here. I personally found the cranky old husband quite amusing (though I wouldn't if I had to live with it!). Meryl is great as usual. Nice little story about a couple who have been married a very long time and whether they should call it quits.
