“..still be recommended as superior entertainment for card-carrying grown-ups..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
Review rate : B+

“..spectacularly well matched and attuned to each other..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C

“..much like the marriage with which it's concerned, the more it tries to spice things up, the harder it becomes to enjoy. The moments when either works, though, really ought to count for something..”
by William Goss [Film.com]

“..lukewarm stream of pablum for a hard nugget of truth..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
3 of 4

“..it's going for the truth in people's lives and, for the most part, it finds it..”
by Charlie McCollum [San Jose Mercury News]

“..is no comedy but something far more rare: a Hollywood story of grown-ups, working through something far more complicated than happily-ever-after..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
“..is an altogether pleasant surprise: a mainstream dramedy that frankly and intelligently addresses the challenges facing a couple after 31 years of marriage..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..holds few surprises but delivers plenty of warmth..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..extraordinary movies as real and grown up as this don't come much from major studios anymore, making Hope Springs a unique treat..”
by Pete Hammond [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..a rom-com that's trying to impress viewers with its progressive, sensitive sexual politics..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
3.5 of 5

“..a charming film. Not a great one, but a good one..”

LATEST REVIEWS

UNFINISHED BUSINESS :

“..a jumble of half-baked ideas, none particularly interesting..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHAPPIE :

“..Blomkamp's ideas feel depleted this time, dulled by repetition and other cinematic droids that stretch from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey to Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

FAULTS :

“..Winstead is one of the most intuitive actors of her generation, and though her impressive range is easy to spot, it's her elasticity that makes her so rewarding to watch..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN :

“..Sam Worthington and Jim Sturgess are solid as two of the four kidnappers, but Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OCTOBER GALE :

“..the material is not exceptional, but Ms. Clarkson always is. She's that rare actress over 50 who seems to land a lot of the juicy roles her younger competitors covet..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
