Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts exchange smiles in first Larry Crowne trailer

03.16.2011

It's been a rather long time since we've seen either Tom Hanks or Julia Roberts in something significant, and to see them return together in one movie you'd immediately think "Oscars galore!"

But as this first trailer for LARRY CROWNE demonstrates, it doesn't quite seem like that type of film. Hanks is a unemployed man headed back to college and Roberts is his teacher, and by the end of the trailer, they're in love. The film also stars Cedric the Entertainer and Taraj P. Henson.

You know, I love Hanks and I'm inclined to believe that most things he's in I'll love (excluding Dan Brown-related ventures), but if I'm being honest, I think that if you subbed out two black actors for Hanks and Roberts, slapped a "directed by Tyler Perry" stamp on there, I'm not sure you'd need to change anything else to make that idea plausible.

But both Hanks and Roberts are huge talents and audience draws, so perhaps their performances will elevate this seemingly mundane story to something unexpectedly great. Watch for yourself below or see it in HD at Yahoo!

I hate when movie trailers give away major parts in the movie away. When they do that thats when you know the movie will be bad because they have to show so much to make it look intersting when its really not. Looks like a tyler perry film which is a disapointment because Tom Hanks hasnt been in a good film in a long ass time.

I'm not a Tom Hanks fan, I can put up with him if I have to but I would usually rather not.

This looks promising. Could go either way.

looks good. The beginning of the trailer had me thinking of Summer School, or The Breakfast Club. Am I just seeing things, or was that Dave Chappelle in the classroom as one of the students?

It's about that time, isn't it? Is Tom Hanks heading down the path of Robert Deniro?

Snooooorrrreeee.....

I'm sorry I fell asleep halfway through. It really IS as boring as a Tyler Perry film! Which one of them is the killer cyborg from the future?

Put a huge smile on my face.

The trailer makes the film look like light fluff, but seeing Hanks back to doing comedy is great.

I haven't liked Roberts in many of her recent films, and she's not exactly selling me on this either, hopefully her chemistry with Hanks works well because it looks like the film will mostly rely on that.

My friend was telling me the other day that when her brother played football against Tom Hanks son Hanks was so impressed with her brothers playing he came over and insisted on meeting him. HE EVEN TUSSLED HIS HAIR--JUST LIKE IN THE SIMPSONS!

I'm surprised you didn't mention that Hanks directed this in the article. I loved That Thing You Do so it's great to see him behind the camera again AND in something that looks funny. Hanks is a great dramatic actor but he was great at comedy first.

I'm sold.

This looks like fun. Not as deep as Hanks has been, but a bit of a return to his comic roots. Julia Roberts also doe sarcastic bitch very well. I was hoping to see Bryan Cranston in the trailer.

Ukelele score on trailer, forrest gump blue font on white background, race friendly black man AND Julia Roberts.....this will be white-tastic.

Also, besides Woody and The Burbs, I do not like Tom Hanks.

Movie looks alright, but Tom Hanks makes me wanna see it. It's impossible not to love the man. He's also got Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close coming out sometime this year, which should be more Oscar-ish than this will be
