4.0 out of 5 stars Trailer promised a different movie, December 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Larry Crowne (Amazon Instant Video)
I see a lot of reviews that aren't positive and mention that this movie isn't funny. I think it might be because Hollywood decided to market this movie as something it wasn't. It's not a romantic comedy. It is, however, a very good movie about people who aren't 25 or even 35, and how they realize they don't have to be stuck in a situation that isn't good, just because of their age. Tom Hanks does a great job as "Lance" and Julia Roberts and he have real chemistry on screen. This movie has no explosions, no fast cars, no half-naked women. What it does have is good acting and an interesting and entertaining story. Above all, it demonstrates that no matter your age, we are all still trying to figure life out.

I liked this movie too. Just an enjoyable movie based on realistic terms; but I like Tom and Julia:)

Very good review. I would also like to say the more I watch Larry Crowne "with an e", the better it gets. The music is great. I bought the soundtrack and listen to it all the time. Thanks to Tom and Julia for making a movie for us middle agers, and even if you're still in your early 20 & 30s it puts a very positive spin on the middle years.
