Hope Springs - D. Frankel 2012

Superb actors in a comedy about sex therapy - I admit I did get my hopes up. (The French title applied perfectly.).

Much to my disappointment, however, it all came pretty much to nothing. 
There is no way you can talk about sex and have the film work as a family comedy at the same time; it just feels as if you are not taking your own subject matter seriously.
And I am not saying you can't treat serious subjects lightly - I'm saying it's challenging, and David Frankel does not measure up to the task.
