A likeable and light-hearted comedy that doesn't attempt to be anything more.

An immensely likeable film, this uplifting rom com about turning life around has a whole lot of things going for it

It sets out to be a pleasant, sweet-natured entertainment that tries to avoid cynicism (perhaps a little too hard). On that basis, it succeeds well enough.

"Larry Crowne" could have easily starred Spencer Tracy and be showing on TCM this very instant.

Definitely for mature audiences as there were no car chases or explosions. Hanks and Roberts still have chemistry together, and there is always that fantastic Roberts laugh.

Larry Crowne is neither dinner nor dessert, but rather the tasty and ultimately inconsequential appetizer you enjoy before moving on to the more substantive fare.

What a pleasant, easy-going experience that was.

The film is sometimes gentle to the point of blandness, but it's never flimsy.

Works only because of the likability of Hanks and Roberts.
