Scotch's rating of the film Hope Springs

I was happily surprised by the film's frankness about the awkwardness of sex and the difficulty of relationships, but it felt a little unwilling to let go of its own genre constraints as middle-aged housewife porn (which, don't get me wrong, I LOVE). Also, I kept waiting for Steve Carrell to fart or something.
