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.

Two very talented actors, give very real performance of married life that has ********** spark.

Hope Springs is a minor miracle of a movie. Within a Hollywood tradition accustomed to treating sex as something titillating, taboo, gauzily idealized or downright pornographic, finally someone has made a movie that treats it in the riskiest way possible: as the physical expression of intimacy between two flawed but recognizable adults.

An unusually intelligent cut at the relationship game. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
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." Full Review

USA Today
It's about as uncomfortable as sitting through an interminable counseling session - involving two people you hardly know and don't much care about. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
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. Full Review
