Hope Springs (Vanessa Taylor)
Starring: Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell, Ben Rappaport, Marin Ireland, Elisabeth Shue
My thoughts on this film: I saw the trailer and thought it looked hilarious, but then I went on to watching the movie...
I expected nothing but greatness from such a wonderful cast and got... nothing!
With some funny moments, this looked more like a romantic story than the comedy it was supposed to be. Steve Carell was not funny at all, Meryl Streep was the romantic and clumsy wife in love with her husband - nothing new there and this sounds funnier than it actually was -, leaving Tommy Lee Jones with all the funny lines.
Some bits were a little too mushy and awkward for my taste; however, to be fair, it was not all so bad, I did laugh, but overall this movie was disappointing.
