    Synopsis


    Larry Crowne
    An amiable Navy veteran loses his comfortable job at a big-box store, enrolls in community college, and seeks to reinvent himself while falling for his apathetic speech professor in this romantic comedy re-teaming Academy Award-winning Charlie Wilson's War co-stars Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Larry Crowne (Hanks) has just been downsized. The unfortunate victim of a failing economy, Larry decides that his best option to avoid becoming idle is to take some classes at his local community college. In no time, Larry befriends a colorful group of moped-obsessed outcasts on the road to self-improvement, and begins working to sharpen his communication skills in a public speaking class taught by Mercedes Tainot (Roberts). Disenchanted with her job and bored in her marriage, Mercedes has begun to feel as if she's missing out on life. But whenever she's with Larry, all of her problems seem to disappear. Now, just as Larry and Mercedes are feeling as if their lives have been put on hold, they both discover that fate sometimes has a way of giving us exactly what we need, at precisely the right time. Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer, Pam Grier, and George Takei co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Being a lifelong Tom Hanks fan and my wife a lifelong Julia Roberts fan this sounds like a great date combo right? Well yes and no. While the acting is great the plot is subpar and becomes nothing more than a typical chick flick. That's not a bad thing but for Tom Hanks, who directed this and prior to that That Thing You Do!, I was just expecting a bit more. Good to buy at a low price point to curl up with at home with. I give it a B

      Acting - It's good. Not mind-blowing, The actors were good enough that I felt connected, and that's as good as it ever has to be. The plot - nothing jaw-droppingly complicated and twisted, but then again neither was Forest Gump. And what a big success that movie proved to be. Don't expect character development to blow you away, but it did, at the very least, impress me.

      Fun movie that brings together two of the most loved actors of our time... Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks. It's a reflection of the time it was released....when many people who had stable lives suddenly found themselves floating in a sea of uncertainty. The evolution of the relationship between the two holds the viewers attention and brings the ending we expect.

      Without giving away the story, is essentially a far too familiar set of circumstances that occur to a middle aged man- and how he responds to them. Seems a bit silly at first but really gains momentum as the movie progresses. Liked it enough to purchase it after viewing at a friend's house.

      The ease of purchase & pick-up made this a easy choice....Have only recently been taking advantage of the buy and pick up at the store and find it a great way to shop. Most items we look for can be found at Best buy, so we will most likely continue the practice...

      Is the extended title of this film. Actually, I think we've all encountered a Larry Crowne in our lives, and that's positive. A good ensemble cast, especially Cedric the Entertainer. A good stay-at-home during the winter blues entertaining film.

      It's typical of todays world. Just because Larry Crowne doesn't have the college degree, he loses his job, even though he has been doing a good job and has been receiving employee of the month awards. The movie tells about his life after losing his job.

      An underrated romantic comedy with a middle-aged man who goes back to school where he meets a lovely professor. Larry Crowne is a breezy movie with two top stars.
