Lawrence Bourne III (Tom Hanks) is a snide, rich, playboy, who runs up a series of gambling debts and has to make a quick exit. His only means of escape is through enlisting in the Peace Corps in Thailand. There, he meets a variety of American volunteers, whose gung-ho enthusiasm ensures a clash of personalities with the laid back aristocrat. Also starring John Candy and Rita Wilson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Volunteers 30 Dec 2005
By A Customer
My all time favourite Tom Hanks film. He's the rich trust fund kid with huge gambling debts who takes his college room mate's place as a charity volunteer on a plane to Thailand to escape them. It's vintage Hanks and hilarious.

2.0 out of 5 stars A big letdown 9 Aug 2011
By MazzaJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I Must start by saying that i normally love Tom Hanks and John Candy films especially 1980s ones, however this film is really bad. Tom Hanks trys to do an English accent which doesn't really work and he frequently slips into his normal american accent, the plot is just silly and i think it was a waste of 2 good actors. If you fancy a tom hanks film watch BIG or Money pit, much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two of the best comedic actors 3 May 2013

I enjoy watching films with John Candy, or Tom Hanks in the cast, whatever the genre of the film.
Both give 100% performances in their roles - and they do not disapoint, at all!
