Dan O'Neill60 - With itís problemís of being way too cute for no reason, Larry Crowne may not be the funniest thing to see, but the cast, especially an always likable Hanks, a cool and relaxed pace, and good themes make this a good watch for people who just had their mid-life crisisí, as well as for people who just want a smile.
