Larry Crowne

Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over.

CRITICS REVIEWS

Movies rarely come squarer than “Larry Crowne.’’ A big-box store fires Larry (Tom Hanks) from his manager’s job for lack of higher education. Jobless and stuck with a mortgage on a $392,000 house, Larry enrolls in a Los Angeles community college. When anyone says his name, he politely reminds them that it’s “Crown’’ with an “e.’’ He turns his 20 years’ cooking for the Navy into a job at his buddy’s diner. At school, he falls for his steely speech professor (Julia Roberts) and falls in with a multiracial gang of young scooter riders who commit such crimes of cuteness as makeovers and matchmaking. Larry discusses the glories of French toast, wears a silk scarf to class, and happily motors around the city with his new friends. It’s “Easy-Listening Rider.’’

One of JR's better,newer movies.

Larry Crowne is one of Julia Roberts' better,newer movies. She doesn't play the role of the female victim who'd always scream"I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME!" at her man the way she did in those late 80s and early 90s spin-off of 1940s romance thrillers.
