Pretty standard affair about marriage therapy for an aging but loving couple sleeping in separate rooms. Thank goodness for fast forward button during those stretched out moments. A younger couple with more credible relationship issues would be a better watch. Not to be confused with the book Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate, 2012.

Very dull, if not for Meryl , I would not even watch it to the end. Waste of time.

I got a few chuckles out of this one. Meryl Streep was terrific as the emotionally unfulfilled wife, and Tommy Lee Jones as her miserable husband. I could definitely relate to the mundane rut these two had fallen into over the years, and also how easy it is to take people for granted. Steve Carell was perfect as the deadpan therapist, too.

This would not have been interesting with lesser-known actors.

Not a comedy at all !
But a charming exploration of a human relationship by two veteran actors at the top of their game.

Thank goodness Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones are excellent actors because this movie is on the slow, rather boring side. The producers wanted to show a mariage in trouble which could be saved but it was not that well done.

This movie is a powerful and fun way to re-ignite your relationship with your significant other!

I rented it and said to my partner: "Hey Hun, I have a movie for us to watch".

Well, lets just say, it work fantastically! ;)

I really enjoyed this movie. It was not a big comedy as I expected. It was much more than I expected. It is about married people who drift apart for various reasons and the importance of talking to each other. A well done thoughtful movie acted very well by Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell.
The soundtrack was good as well.
I would recommend this movie for couples who have been together for a while.

Dr. Feld: "What about oral sex?" Kay: "I wasn't... I wasn't comfortable with that." Dr. Feld: "Giving or receiving?" Kay: "...Huh?"
