Watch: Tom Hanks awkwardly woos Julia Roberts in Larry Crowne trailer

Pin it

Is there any cinematic cliché more heartwarming than a pair of world-weary middle-aged people finally finding love and a new lease on life? I think not. For further proof, check out the new trailer for Larry Crowne, the Tom Hanks/Julia Roberts comedy that marks Hanks' first directorial project since That Thing You Do.

When Hanks' character is fired from a low level job, he re-enrolls in college (bolstered by a trusty moped and a supporting cast of characters including Cedric the Entertainer and George Takei), only to end up in a class taught by a bored and jaded Julia Roberts. Sparks and soul-searching follow, and hearts everywhere melt. Two thumbs up!
