Larry Crowne (Hanks) is made redundant from his supermarket job because he doesn't have a college degree and, with other jobs thin on the ground, decides to become a student. In community college he meets new friends, and develops an interest in his unhappily married teacher, Mercedes (Roberts).
This one coasts by on Hanks’ immense appeal and charm, but more focus and a touch more sharpness are needed to make it really come alive.
