Tom Hanks United States, 2011

Caro luna's rating of the film Larry Crowne

It's a very light film. I don't want to be too harsh, because I'm fond of Tom Hanks and Nia Vardalos, but it lacks thematic and structural cohesion. The premise is interesting and it would be fun to see some comedic struggle and growth. The stakes should feel higher. Also, the dialogue and relationships are too easy and, as a result, are clunky and weightless. Mildly entertaining.
