Julie Roberts starts to understanding what Tom Hanks is driving at in Larry Crowne.

The comedy-drama romance (okay, we’ll call it a romantic comedy, as well) Larry Crowne, starring Tom Hanks (Road to Perdition) and Julia Roberts (Eat Pray Love), fills the slot of feel-good movie of the summer of 2011.

Directed and co-written by Hanks, the film sets its sights on the happy-go-lucky company man Larry Crowne (Hanks), who finds himself edged out of his job in a downsizing. Larry takes the loss of his job in stride and decides to start over by enrolling at a local college. At school, he quickly falls in with a colorful pack of scooter-riding outcasts, but it’s in his public-speaking class where Larry develops an unexpected crush on his beautiful but troubled teacher, Mercedes Tainot (Roberts).

Terri – The Review

I believe the only people who truly enjoyed high school are those who breezed through the experience. For the rest of us, those four (or more) years of high school falls somewhere on a sliding scale of misery ranging from an annoying itch to a torturous punishment inflicted by the worst kind of mad scientist.

Stereotypes are common in films about teenagers, especially when set against the backdrop of high school. The truth is, teenagers and stereotypes go hand-in-hand. Without teenagers, there would be no stereotypes, but the burnouts, jocks and preppies of the .80s no longer apply in the new millennium. No, the typical characters of the John Hughes era have evolved along a parallel plane into some not better or worse, but different.

Director Azazel Jacobs (Momma.S Man, The Good Times Kids) delves into the strange world of the high school outsider with Terri, written by first-timer Patrick Dewitt.

Blu-Ray Review: Unfunny ‘Peep World’ Wastes Spectacular Comedic Cast

Chicago – “Peep World” plays like the pilot for a failed sitcom that will never end. The running time clocks in at a mere 79 minutes, but the ordeal feels so much longer. One can imagine the canned laughter on TV Land appreciating these gags, which are embarrassingly lame. It’s not long before the miserable, ashen-faced characters begin to mirror the audience.

What’s astounding is the sheer level of comedic talent that has somehow been assembled for this mess. Rainn Wilson, Sarah Silverman, Judy Greer, Ben Schwartz and Stephen Tobolowsky have far better things to do than waste time with this dreck. Were they really dying to work with director Barry W. Blaustein, whose last comedy was 2005’s offensive Special Olympics satire, “The Ringer”? Or were they swayed by the utterly humorless script by Peter Himmelstein, best known for doing the title design in “Slums of Beverly Hills”?

DVD: DVD: Peep World

Sarah Silverman made the podcast rounds a while back to talk up The Bedwetter, her bestselling memoir, and Peep World, an ensemble comedy-drama in which she co-starred. The latter project radiated promise. Beyond a cast that included Michael C. Hall, Rainn Wilson, Judy Greer, Ron Rifkin, Taraji P. Henson, Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio on Parks And Recreation), Kate Mara, Alicia Witt, Lesley Ann Warren, and Stephen Tobolowsky, Peep World promised a much-buzzed-about Silverman nude scene, which seems to have ended up on the cutting-room floor. Comedy geeks had ample cause to anticipate a Peep World theatrical release, but it never arrived ...

Peep World

Family gatherings can be rough even when the only things to fight about are the age old grievances borne from childhood conflicts and parental resentment. Add in one of the siblings writing an expose on the messed up lives of all the family members and the backbiting and name calling reaches new heights. Peep World tells the story of one such family; a family that already hated one another for various personality quirks and failings, only to have said faults written out for the world to read. The film makes an interesting statement about the harmful effect of bringing the wrong kind of attention to delicate matters while also commenting on our culture that places value on behind-the-scenes access even if it ultimately harms how relationships play out. Director Barry W. Blaustein’s dark comedy couldn’t have asked for a better cast, but it can’t keep up the

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: July 19, 2011

Beauty and the Beast (Criterion Collection) I stayed up late so I could watch this before posting today's column. I'd seen this film only once before, as part of my Janus collection, but that release contains none of the special features available on the full Criterion disc, such as two commentaries, Phillip Glass' opera based on Cocteau's film, interviews, featurettes and a restoration trailer. All of which I didn't have a chance to explore yet, but will shortly and will tell you all about them in a review that is already half-written after watching the film this late evening.

So, in short, yes, for the film alone this is worth the purchase. This is a wonderful and fantastical telling of the story that most only know nowadays through Disney's animated version. However, if you ask me, Disney's version pales in comparison.
