REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 5

“..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]
2 of 4

“..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]
3 of 4

“..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..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
