We liked the movie and had some laughs and tears. We did not like the close ups, nor some of Meryl's hair dos. Steve Carell was great too. May go see it again.

Hope Springs Weakly

Why didn't someone listen to the volume of this movie when they were producing it? My hearing is perfect, and I could barely make out some of the dialogue. Meryl Streep's character was so low key she almost disappeared, and the lines whispered in a very low tone were truly hard to make out. The pace was slow, the characters (although interesting, potentially) never grabbed my attention (perhaps because I had to strain to hear what they were saying). The scenes shot during the rolling of the credits at the end were by far the best. If you can hang on until then you'll see the movie they should have made. What a waste of fine actors.

a raw look into a real relationship...

The trailer made the movie look like it was really funny, but while it had funny parts don't expect it to be anything like "It's complicated" or something like it. In fact, Steve Carell played a serious character and did not joke around at all. It was a raw look into a real relationship of a couple that has been together a long time. Having said all of that, I liked the movie and thought it was real with some really heartwarming parts.

The movie was really great. So funny at times. Meryl Streep was fantastic. What two people went through to try and get the passion back in their marriage. Whether it worked or not, you have to see it.Not for children

If you are an adult. Not a over 13 kid. There are some spots that are very sexual and the kids should not be involved. I even saw some adults covering their eyes some. My husband left when the scene in the movie theater was on. There were many very funny places and I was laughing out loud but they could have left out the other things.
