DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - This is a romantic comedy-drama aimed at an older adult audience. Fans of the two lead stars should be pleased but other familiar names such as Cedric the Entertainer have much smaller background roles. Adult subject matter and language make the film in appropriate for young children, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average It is fair to argue that Larry Crowne isn't a lot smarter than the average summer movie, but at least it's quieter, more sincere, and mercifully shorter than most of its box office competition.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Larry Crowne' has Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts and a good premise and a colorful supporting cast, but what it doesn't have is a reason for existing. The screenplay carries blandness to a point beyond tedium

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Larry Crowne is both a dated, lackluster comedy and a genial, old-fashioned romance.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 183 moviegoers:
TEENS:Five of the six teens loved it and one rated it average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Only four females in this group and two loved it and two enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS:These are very good reviews but not quite great reviews. This is a movie that you are almost certainly going to enjoy very much or even love but it's probably not going to be a memorable movie for most. The very high reviews are somewhat lacking and many rated it "Very Good," which is good but not great. Also, a fair number only rated it "Good/Average."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heeds the advice of his good friends and neighbors—Lamar (CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER) and B'Ella (TARAJI P. HENSON)—and heads to his local college to start over.

At East Valley Community College, Larry becomes part of a colorful group of fellow scooter-riding students—including the charming Talia (GUGU MBATHA-RAW) and her boyfriend, Dell (WILMER VALDERRAMA)—all trying to find a better future for themselves.

Much to his surprise, he develops a crush on his public-speaking teacher, Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her deadbeat husband, Dean (BRYAN CRANSTON). Mercedes can't deny the changes in Larry are inspiring, nor can she deny her budding attraction to this middle-aged student, who is undergoing a fascinating transformation.

The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: When you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
