    The Cast Of 'Larry Crowne' Weighs In On Tom Hanks & This Summer's Anti-Tentpole

    Co-written, directed by and starring Tom Hanks, "Larry Crowne" is an upbeat look at a life completely rebuilt. Despite the timely plotline -- a man fired from his job must completely reverse his life direction -- the film itself is filled with good-natured laughs, a beautiful setting in Southern California, an odd performance from George Takei and a lot of hope.
