Larry Crowne Review

DoBlu
17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) has lost his job, his house, and his possessions, yet remains perpetually happy. In a way, it feels a little cruel, having some fun at the expense of those struggling, but that’s sort of what makes it refreshing. This movie isn’t a downer despite its dramatic elements.

Larry Crowne (2011)

10 November 2011
  • Conclusion: How two stars of such caliber as Hanks and Roberts could have ended up in this mess (let alone write and direct it) is anyone's guess. There's just nothing very special about this film, something that this pairing should have augured with absolutely no problem.

  • Excerpt: Simply put, “Larry Crowne” is light entertainment. It’s filled with light chuckles, light characters, and it has a light feel-good ending. It’s not raunchy, it never gets too deep or dark, and it never takes some of the more adult twists and turns that were open to it.

DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: "Larry Crowne" is a breath of fresh air in a summer moviegoing season polluted with superheroes, family film fart jokes, and battling robots. Serving as its co-writer/director/star, Tom Hanks presents a portrait of betterment, taking on cynicism with a motion picture that revels in its mild-mannered...

AV Club

  • Excerpt: There’s little on the mind of Larry Crowne , an almost proudly weightless romantic comedy directed by and starring Tom Hanks, but that doesn’t mean it will leave audiences without anything to think about.

Review: ‘Larry Crowne’

Variety
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Movie stars may be less valued than they used to be, but it's still puzzling to see Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts stuck in a romantic comedy as flat-footed and tone deaf as "Larry Crowne."
