Larry Crowne Reviews

Amy Curtis
We Got This Covered

Larry Crowne is nothing we haven't seen before and at times feels over-done and cliched.

Even Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts can't sell this lightweight rom-com fantasy.

This is a sweet movie. It's so sweet, in fact, that it made me realize how cynical I've gotten over time.

What Culture

Hanks and Roberts clearly seem up for a work-out, but this dull rom-com holds any potential chemistry at the mercy of poor jokes, a meandering plot and unlikeable supporting characters.

As much as you might want to like it, the lack of gumption makes it difficult to go all the way.

Larry Crowne, Hanks' second effort behind the camera, makes It's a Wonderful Life look like Enter the Void. It's a cute movie that never meant to hurt no one, and that's the best thing I can say about it.

Severely lacking in drama, characters and substance.

It felt like I was being smothered with "feel good" moments. Everything about the story and its characters is too far detached from reality.

So nice and upbeat and eager to please that other movies might beat it up on the playground.

While one can appreciate the film's rousing endorsement of our community college system, it's about as realistic as an episode of the TV sitcom "Community."

Carries about as much dramatic weight as a baby eating a Jaffa Cake.

...Hanks' and Vardalos' treatment of a middle-aged Joe heading back to the classroom is about as believable as Rodney Dangerfield's Back to School - and not half as entertaining.

It's not a terrible film but it's also not amusing, feelgood or moving.

"Larry Crowne" has Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts and a good premise and a colorful supporting cast, but what it doesn't have is a reason for existing.

Larry Crowne doesn't come close to providing the rom-com satisfactions of films attached to the names Hanks and Roberts, or writer Nia Vardalos for that matter.

Neither fish nor fowl, Larry Crowne skitters between pathos and shtick, wasting abundant acting talent as it goes.

It's the neediest movie of 2011, and one of the phoniest.
