I did not intend on watching this film at the cinema at all but as I went through the listing I realised it was the last showing available so it was an "oh well we'll watch that then" situation.

I am SO glad that I did. The easiest way I can describe this film is the surprise film of the year for me. I go to the cinema Every week as I like to keep up with the latest movies and it Isn't often at all that a film so poorly advertised could turn out to be so good.

The surprise actor of this film is the young girl who plays the character Talia. She was a revelation and added such a great tone to the film. Tom Hanks yet again performing in a great role with some other brilliant actors. I can see why some people might not like this film because it Isn't Tom Hanks shouting "Wilson!" or "Life is like a box of chocolates." People do not realise that it doesn't need to be a huge film to be extremely enjoyable and light hearted.

The humour of this film was just ideal, obviously it wasn't Hangover laugh out loud funny, but it was enough to keep me and the girlfriend smiling throughout the film.

I Would recommend this to any big film watchers, and hopefully it will surprise you as much as it did me!

5.0 out of 5 stars A different side to both actors 19 April 2013
By rp
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film really surprised me. The film allows the actors to move away from their usual stereotypical roles. Julia Roberts takes on her character really well (as always). The film is funny, witty and takes on a simple storyline. I feel that the film is so good because of the acting and as mentioned before, my surprise at these actors taking on a different type of role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redundant Resurgency 11 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I chose the 'I love it' rating because, although Tom Hanks is playing the main role, his is not the main focus, it's really all about the female role played by Julia Roberts, here, the nuances of relationships and redemption and starting life and love all over again is a very positive and also makes for an uplifting filmic experience.

It's a rare gem, it's one of those films which you can keep watching and also bridges the generational process, renewal and regeneration. It's a positive and feel good film, with a wonderfully sensitive and believable casting between the main leads.

It may is a great film for all the family and great to see the 'extras', the cast are fantastic and Larry's neighbours are very funny.

Just an all round feel good movie. I don't know why a lot of people have criticized this movie. There is really great chemistry between Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Great all round cast, great movie.

Two superstars who always deliver the goods. Super film, and scored points with 'Her indoors'. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon film. Watchable over and over again.
