LARRY CROWNE (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Larry Crowne
has a simple storyline about breaking barriers and moving on when life dishes unexpected turns. This is a Tom Hanks directed film and turns into a nicely entertaining film that is quite good. The casting of Tom Hanks with Julia Roberts is surprisingly charismatic. The romance is not overdone nor is it predictable. Watch for Cedric the Entertainer and George Takei in the film.
