Diasappointing, 16 June 2012
Author: bsholley from United States

I was look for a good snappy comedy, or at least, some fun romance. Neither here. Yeah, it's not awful, but who cares about any of the characters. Really, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, and Nia (Greek wedding), ought to be able to put together something much better. When a man loses his job, he is usually devastated. Larry was mildly sad and surprised, but immediately went to work to find something else. Also, as a clerk in a big box store, how could he ever afford that house to begin with? But where did he get the money to go to school? Things seemed too easy. Yes, I know it was a movie, and a supposed comedy, but it just didn't work. The Julia Roberts character is so uni-dimensional, so flat. If she didn't have great legs and a pretty face there would be no point for her to be the one in the movie. Yes, disappointing.
