Leave it to Tom Hanks to be part of the salvation of romantic comedies by making what looks like a throwback to the heyday that ended at the end of the 90s. Plus, he manages to do it all in his tighty-whiteys.
He goes about 20% Forrest Gump for Larry Crowne where he plays a lovable, completely sweet guy who tucks his polo shirts in. Larry gets fired from his job because he doesn’t have a college degree, so he takes a public speaking class taught by Julia Roberts’s character. Love ensues.
The trailer is adorable like a cat sitting in a sink wearing a hat:
Nothing wrong with that. Best of all, it doesn’t look saccharine, and the chemistry seems to work even in the trailer.
