This is a pleasant and heartwarming, and sometimes nearly moving story of Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) who lost his job and who sought to equip himself with some skills so the same thing wouldn't happen again. Julia Roberts plays a very jaded college lecturer who's in an unhappy marriage with a man who's addicted to internet pornography. Larry has a makeover courtesy of a fellow student who takes an interest in him. He downsizes, changes his transport and gets a part time job and begins to live life very differently. He's a changed man by the end of the film. Julia also evolves as the film progresses. Her husband leaves (she put him out) and she falls in love.... with Larry. It's a cute film but not overly eventful and perhaps one that I could have watched at home on DVD rather than going to the cinema for.
