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). Through his own determination,

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.
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”?
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.
