Larry Crowne, Hanks' second effort behind the camera, makes It's a Wonderful Life look like Enter the Void. It's a cute movie that never meant to hurt no one, and that's the best thing I can say about it.
To pluck romantic comedy from the jaws of a social crisis is a laudable project, worthy of Preston Sturges, and it's a pity that this featherlight drama-written by Tom Hanks and Nia Vardalos, and directed by Hanks himself-should falter in its task.
Actors such as Michael Clarke Duncan, Mo'Nique, Mike Epps and Cedric the Entertainer have been persuaded by writer-director Malcolm D. Lee to do crass routines that should have gone out with minstrel shows.
The Coens do an efficient job of stamping their signature grotesquerie on sumptuous Beverly Hills and Las Vegas settings and ladling on gallows humor and malice, sometimes with the verve of early Robert Zemeckis.
I could have however sent it via Pidgeon and got it there quicker and, it took so long for the employees to find my movie that I gave up and left so, I will have to return later. I've never received this cd of the movie yet however, I will as soon as I find the time to return to WalMart to again atempt to pick it up.
Great price. Movie did not keep ME entertained. :(
I purchased this movie for a male Friend. He asked for it. He does not have cable, so I am subject to all the old boring movies he shows ME and others over and over again.\nThe movie was not that good. I would never ever want to see it again. It was nice to have no cursing or nudity in the movie.\nI like the actor Cerdric'The Entertainer', so that was a big plus.\nI will continue to order online, so far your prices are the lowest.
