NY Observer film critic Rex Reed wrote about the new movie, Hope Springs: “In an age of idiotic garbage overpopulated with alternate realities and toxic avengers in Halloween costumes, I cannot tell you how touching, restorative and vitamin-enriching it is to see a gentle, tender and intelligent film with A-list stars playing real people dealing with real problems in the everyday world…I think everything about the movie is too subtle and real to appeal to the Batman demographic, but for mature audiences who have forgotten how to smile, it takes up where The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel left off.”
Ladies, I hope all of you will go see this movie this weekend. Take your friends, family members and even your chick-flick-hating husbands. It is an intelligent, well-crafted film that was made with you and me in mind.
Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep are always good. In Hope Springs, they are beyond awesome. So are the Corgis (I have two, but in this movie, and for Queen Elizabeth II, “three’s the limit”).
With that in mind, I just may go see it twice.
