Hopeless Babble! That what I called "Hope Spring" a dull movie about a old couple seeking therapy to save their marriage. Meryl Streep plays the wife whose is suffering from lack of sex and Tommy Lee Jones in a dull performance doesn't wa nt to give it to her for some reason. Steve Carell plays the sex therapist who doesn't do much to his character. the therapy sessions are boring and doesn't lead anywhere. There is one scene where Streep and Jones tries to have oral sex at a movie theatre. They're lucky they didn't end up in jail. People will love this movie. I took the manority position. If Meryl Streep gets an Oscar nomination for her role, I be shaking my head and asking why?
These two actors made the movie. Everybody was laughing, esp at Meryl Streep as she played the part. It was so good. After it ended people just sat there.
Very well done, and funny.
Very good movie for older adults who have been in a long-term relationship. I don't think younger audiences will be very comfortable with it. I thought the acting was superb and really made the film work.
There was one scene/question that was never answered, which my husband and I both thought was the one drawback of this movie. Maybe the scene that answers the question of why the husband couldn't look at his wife was left on the cutting room floor, and that was a big mistake in our opinion.If not, the screenwriter missed an opportunity for a very powerful scene.
