Hope Springs

  • Movie

Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones are both Ivy Leaguers who broke into Hollywood in the 1970s and went on to become Academy Award winners, but somehow they never managed to truly work together. Yes, they both co-starred in Robert Altman’s A Prairie Home Companion in 2006, but they never shared a scene, making Hope Springs, that summer movie that your mom and her book club raved about, extremely special. The duo play an aging married couple who have allowed the sizzle to go out from their marriage, and Steve Carell is the marriage specialist tasked with getting them back in the groove. The Blu-ray and DVD are released today, and EW has an exclusive clip from the DVD Gag Reel. Two reasons why this gag reel is superior to 99 percent of gag reels: Tommy Lee Jones and corgis.

Here’s the trailer, which helps explain the fuss about the corgis.
