It’s been such a sweet day and this trailer kinda topped it for me. While it’s definitely not a Pitch Perfect (in terms of dirty, silly, immature humor)– and although I did swear off all films not featuring Rebel Wilson– it’s Meryl Streep and Steve Carell in a movie about sex (and love and relationships and all that, but you know, sex). Carell is, eternally, the 40 Year Old Virgin in my eyes so it was hilarious to see him as a couple/sex therapist in this first Hope Springs trailer. Good, semi-clean laughs inside!
Hope Springs First Trailer
David Frankel (who you may remember as the director of The Devil Wears Prada!!!) brings us this sweet little tale that I’d like to think will work for all audiences. Although Hope Springs centers on an older couple, I thought the trailer was totally funny and I cannot wait to see this. I also had a mini Meryl Streep movie-fest a few weeks back and realized that I will watch any and all of her movies for all time.
What’d you guys think of the trailer? And more importantly, why are banana/penis jokes still funny?
Hope Springs hits theaters August 10th.
