This week's reviewed movie is:
Larry Crowne




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



Larry Crowne lacks a well-told story, and after about an hour you decide it barely skims on any one subject.

The movie never finding friction in its characters and gives the audience a lot of scooter rides which coast you out of this.

You're likely to leave the theater with a very different felling than intended.

A real letdown.

When it comes to bland romantic comedies, this one is hard to beat.

Considering the star power, there is zero chemistry.

Plus, you have to make a giant leap of faith to believe ANYTHING is ever going to happen (don't worry, it doesn't!).

Larry Crowne, downsized or just plain fired -- his life is a bunch of amiable outings destined to be as mediocre as this film.

This romantic comedy is about a strong desire fulfilled.

In this case, it's the reason that there can be better days ahead after losing a wife, a job, and a house.

This flick was planned for adult summer season entertainment.

The romantic look of the tale relates to two decent people being careful with the way of their relationship.

This is part of a larger picture.

The star then takes hold of his runaway life and regains control.

The film is predictable, but the movie has heart and offers winning performances from two Academy Award luminaries, Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.
