I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Larry Crowne”: Aww, Heartwarming! (Again!)

leave a comment »

Tom Hanks writes, directs, and stars as the title character in Larry Crowne, which the studio describes as a “dramatic comedy”, which is either an oxymoron or the absolute definition of a Tom Hanks movie.

Larry Crowne is a can-doer, a star at the department store where he works. Unfortunately one day, he’s fired because he didn’t go to college. After getting a moped from Cedric the Entertainer and being mistaken for a cop, he does whatever a person in his position would do: go to college! (And hopefully not rant on Asians in the library.) Meeting a cast of colorful characters, he soon develops a crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts).

See? An uplifting story about finding yourself, losing everything and getting it back, believing in forgiveness, and allowing yourself to let go!

What? That all sounds like a movie trailer? Oh. Well then.

But seriously, this movie looks charming. America could use some uplifting Tom Hanks-y hearwarmingness.
