Larry Crowne - my "go to" movie

Picture from www.gstatic.com

Even though the movie Larry Crowne wasn't loved by film critics, it is loved by me. I saw it last year for the first time and loved it. It is a good clean movie that makes you feel good after you watch it. I don't always like big blockbusters, but rather the smaller, unknown films. I'm just weird like that.

What is it about? Larry (Tom Hanks) is fired from his latest job because he doesn't have a degree. So, he goes back to college to get a degree, which leads to hilarious experiences. Julia Roberts was great in this as well. She plays the surly professor Mercedes Tienot.

The moral of the story is that it is never too late to try something new, or to better your life. There is tons of humor, but you have to be smart to get it. When I feel crappy, or sad, I watch Larry Crowne. Needless to say, I've watched this movie a few times this year and it always cheers me up. Every time I watch it, I laugh.
