Meryl does it again with an outstanding performance sure to get her another Oscar. And Tommy Lee is at his best at well. Overall an excellent movie that anyone in a relationship should see. And so good you'll probably want to see it a second time.

Hope Springs Very Powerful

WOW! What a powerful movie about growing older and not giving up on life with messages about not accepting that you have to repeat the blah patterns of earlier generations. About trying to move out of your comfort zones. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones were fabulous in their roles -- so much of the movie is conveyed thru body language and facial expressions. Steve Carell was also good, but I kept waiting for him to do one of his silly shticks. Hope he makes the transition to more serious roles, and this is a first step. Loved that my husband saw much of himself in Arnold's character! Take your husband and GO GO GO!

This movie is a definite must see! It is about real life for older couples who have been together a long time. The actors did a fantastic job with their parts as everyone in the movie seemed to associate with them.

Great Movie.

I keep hearing bad reviews about this movie from people who have seen it, but when I saw it, I thought that it was a fabulous movie. The acting was wonderful and the story was down to earth and real--- exactly what you might imagine a marriage of 30 years might feel like if both partners don't work at various aspects of their relationship. It was a bit of a slow moving movie, so those interested in a face paced romantic comedy might not like it, but for what it was, and the story it told, I thought it was a great movie.
