Format: DVD
The movie is unbelievable and I don't mean that in a good way. Hanks has worked 20 years at the U-Mart (Movie version of Walmart). He has been employee of the month 8 times and is a hard worker. Now he is being let go because he has no degree and won't be able to advance. Now in some professions I could see that happening, but for a guy who stocks shelves and pushes shopping carts? He also lives in a half million dollar home which is now worth less than the $392,000 he owes on it. (Where are those Walmart applications!) I understand they needed to get him into the school environment, but they could have written a real scenario and one that was funny and tied into the rest of the movie.

Tom Hanks downsizes his life and goes back to school. His Speech 217 teacher is a slightly unkempt, bored with life, Julia Roberts. She is equally bored in her marriage to a writer who spends most of his time watching porn on the Internet. (I can't believe there is porn on the Internet!) They split over an unlikely fight.

His economics class is taught by a narcissistic Mr. Sulu. His class mates consists of a number of colorful and quirky characters that make the movie more interesting than Mr. Hanks walking around with his polo shirt tucked in. He joins a bike/scooter gang whose initiation requirement is to able to snap your fingers in unison. Larry (known as Lance Corona to his female lead biker group) takes a job as a cook (a job he did in the Navy) at a diner. All the women seem to dig Larry, a middle aged man with a pouch. Some more of Hanks fantasy writing.

It is an easy to watch, feel good movie for bad economic times. Not much action or comedy. Drama is a bit weak too. A movie your kids could watch except for Julia Roberts dropping the F-bomb.

Tom Hanks needs to stay in front of the camera and not behind it. 5 stars for Hanks as an actor. 2 stars for his writing and direction.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity. Awkward drunken screen kiss.

Format: Blu-ray
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!

I was either in a very good mood, came with no expectations at all, or just took in the sheer implausibility of the whole exercise; whichever it was I quite liked this second feature-length directorial effort from Hanks in some small way. It's fifteen years now since he helmed his first movie though he's done TV in-between, not least episodes of Band of Brothers. That Thing you Do was a little gem of a film back in 1996 for those of you who remember those '60s rock/pop crossover pictures that were so popular from thirty years before. His latest effort Larry Crowne is trying, at least, to be as unassuming as that film was, and at times hits some marks. Genuinely funny - for anybody who has attended such things - are the Community College lecturers who dole out wisdom in their classes either straight from their - for sale! - course pack (a brilliantly deadpan George Takei) or else call up their past glories in Shakespeare classes they're more determined to cancel than teach (Julia Roberts is great early on in the picture!). There are flabby moments throughout however, and why Gugu Mbatha-Raw's young, hip and ever so-smart Talia would take up with Crowne and give him an unlikely moniker, is anybody's guess. Crowne's move from U-Mart nerd of the month, to hipster old-hand on campus is equally suspect in places too; but every now and then, you can just about see the film's tongue firmly in its cheek. Hanks's real life wife, Rita Wilson turns up as his bank's financial advisor, spreading aphorisms and free coffee like the credit crunch never happened. Crowne's neighbours operate a 24hr, seven-days-a-week garage sale with virtually no financial nouse at all. Hanks and Roberts finally fall for each other though the path is of course, never smooth. Nor is the tone and evenness of this film.Read more ›

Really sweet film, I have always admired and loved Tom Hanks work in films, and this film doesnt let down. I wanted to see it in the theater but missed the chance, so got it on dvd instead. Very nice story and suporting cast shine as well.

The two characters in Larry Crowne - played by Tom Hanks (Larry) and Julia Roberts (Mercedes) - carry off a beautifully subtle and touching romantic comedy. The setting of Larry's redundancy and Mercedes dissappointing marriage make it rich in human understanding: a film you'll think about a lot afterwards. Perhaps you need to have lived a little to appreciate the joy and hope this film brings, much better to see it now (aged 41) than at 20. Also, you'll love George Takei (the actor who played 'Mr Sulu')... his small part is a real treat :)
