The trailer for LARRY CROWNE does a pretty good job of summing up the movie in a nutshell. You really don’t actually have to see the movie, since it pretty well shows you absolutely everything interesting that happens in the movie. Ok, maybe that’s a bit harsh, but I don’t think it’s a big secret that movie trailers tend to give too much away these days and this trailer is no exception.
This film banks on being relatable to the common people who are going through crisis because of the state of the economy. It’s meant to be a romantic comedy, but LARRY CROWNE is missing a couple of things for that: the romance… oh right, and the comedy. I actually thought maybe this movie wouldn’t be so bad since it was written not only by Tom Hanks, but also My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Nia Vardalos and however hokey that movie was, it was also fun. LARRY CROWNE? Not so much.
The Making of Larry Crowne: This is your cookie-cutter Making Of feature. The cast and crew go over their roles in the film, what the movie meant to them and they talk about their characters all while clips from the movie (that I just finished watching) are playing throughout. (cue inspirational music)
Fun On Set: Well this feature basically goes behind the scenes at the cast and crew during their time filming the movie. The title of the feature is pretty self-explanatory as it tells you exactly what this is all about - it's the gang of LARRY CROWNE all having fun on set... Yay!
