Larry Crowne

The one star is for Cedric The Entertainer, who really does nothing for me comedy wise, but here, he does one thing, becomes an irritating neighbor with a penchant to negotiate at his own garage sales - really well.

Another Wow, just wow. How does so much talent get wasted in such an uneventful movie. I like Tom Hanks, in particular his range of characters. Julia Roberts is herself, but she never really did anything for me. Anyway Hanks with Nia Vardalos who wrote and starred in the very amusing My Big Fat Greek Wedding, wrote Larry Crowne. Iím thinking this looked much more charming on paper than how it was executed. Taking a laid back view, like the Vespa he rides, about a middle aged unemployed man, was probably not the best of timing. Not only was it sad, not cute, it was extremely boring. I picked up a book to read after 20 minutes, my wife, thank gawd declared this crap after a half hour. Itís not bad, itís just a vacuum. I think those people who say itís good (thereís more than I would think) are saying itís watchable, well, because itís Hanks and Roberts. Itís got to be goodÖ right?

Uh, no
