Larry CrowneWhen appealing everyman Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) is inexplicably fired from his job as a big box store clerk, he realizes it’s time for some meaningful change in his life. Deeply in debt and without direction, he returns to college where he befriends a group of scooter-riding students and eventually develops a real affection for his beautiful speech class instructor, Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts).

Critic Reviews of "Larry Crowne"Leah Rozen TheWrapOctober 07, 2011
An exceedingly minor entry on already impressive resumés.Anthony Lane New YorkerJuly 18, 2011
To pluck romantic comedy from the jaws of a social crisis is a laudable project, worthy of Preston Sturges, and it's a pity that this featherlight drama-written by Tom Hanks and Nia Vardalos, and directed by Hanks himself-should falter in its task.Leonard Maltin indieWireJuly 08, 2011
...it's an old-fashioned star vehicle, fashioned for the particular screen personas of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts by Hanks himself, who directed the film and wrote the screenplay with Nia Vardalos. You may recall that he produced her breakthrough film...Peter Travers Rolling StoneJuly 07, 2011
Larry Crowne is more than a missed opportunity. It's alarmingly, depressingly out of touch.Rex Reed New York ObserverJuly 06, 2011
Even if you wander into this congealed mess with nothing more demanding in mind than to spend a little time with two charming favorites, do not expect Forrest Gump or Pretty Woman.Ella Taylor NPRJuly 05, 2011
Neither fish nor fowl, Larry Crowne skitters between pathos and shtick, wasting abundant acting talent as it goes.Mark Jackson Epoch TimesJuly 22, 2016
Tom Hanks's company Playtone appears to be dedicated to making movies where a Beach-Boys-y soundtrack and 1950s Boy Scout values still inform everything. Not necessarily a bad thing -- just cloying.Martin Tsai Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
But with such timely material and a stellar cast, it comes off mostly as a missed opportunity.Sean Burns Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
Bereft of conflict, the film coasts along in second gear on breezy charm, gentle humanism and star wattage.Glenn Dunks TrespassSeptember 15, 2013
Hanks' dorky routine - right on through to the ridiculous ELO-soundtracked end credits as he and Roberts drives around on a scooter in front of a green screen - is thankfully not as draining as one may assume.John Hanlon Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
A likeable and light-hearted comedy that doesn't attempt to be anything more.Amy Curtis We Got This CoveredMarch 02, 2013
Larry Crowne is nothing we haven't seen before and at times feels over-done and cliched.
