Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts find love in Larry Crowe

Larry Crowe

In Larry Crowne, an aimless, unemployed man, played by Tom Hanks, goes back to college and gains more than just book smarts. He also gains a Mercedes — that is, a woman named for the high-end carmaker, an instructor looking a new passion. Somehow, she finds it in Hanks — but then Mercedes is played by Julia Roberts, who can find passion in anything. Hanks also directed the romantic comedy, co-starring Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer and Taraji P. Henson. Oprah would be hyping this to no end if she still had her talk show. Thank god for small favors. Opens Friday, July 1. Area theaters. Visit fandango.com.
