Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —
In the end, those who have been there and done that or even just been able to clear hurdles in their own relationships will be able to enjoy this the most. I wouldn’t exactly recommend it for children as it does involve just enough adult discussion to scar 10-year-old Timmy for life, so age definitely helps there.
However, even when things seem like they are getting dirty, it still comes across far above low brow and quick to put things back in a clean perspective. I doubt I’ll ever own a copy, but who knows what’s possible after I hit my next three decades. For what it’s worth, I’d say “Hope Springs” deserves three out of five cures.
