  • Hope Springs knows happy endings are provisional. What this exuberant gift of a movie offers Kay and Arnold is a renewed appetite for life. And that never gets old. show more

  • The movie perseveres with affecting, sometimes startling candor, and eventually delivers on its promise by confronting the dark fears and furtive hopes of a couple no longer young. show more

  • Rather than plunge into the murky marital waters of ambivalence and power struggle, the film bobs on the surface. No one would ever mistake David Frankel's dramedy of sexual healing for Ingmar Bergman's psychologically astute "Scenes From a Marriage." show more

    What a horrendous waste of talent. Garbage story, garbage dialog, ridiculous finale. Streep and Jones must have been in dire need of $$$ to agree to doing this piece of drech. No stars at all for this one.
