Larry Crowne is a very enjoyable film to watch and for this reason I have given it 4 stars.
It is an uplifting tale of finding yourself again when it seems that your life has fallen apart. Larry Crowne our hero loses his job and decides to go back to college and re-invent himself. It is a very simple yet effective idea, written and directed by Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan), who also plays the part of Larry Crowne, brilliantly as ever.
Larry Crowne is an endearing comedy, also a love story about the journey taken by two people in the throes of a mid-life crisis. The film also stars Julia Roberts (Notting Hill, Erin Brokovich), Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle) and George Takei (Star Trek).
There are no special features included on the disc, however it is difficult to see what they might add to the package, the film alone is quite good enough.
This is an excellent buy, well worth the money and a highly entertaining way to spent a quiet night in. Great fun, very watchable and highly recommended.
