Larry Crowne (2011) review

Until Larry was downsized, affable, amiable Larrywas a superstar  team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves...often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes, who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband. The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.

Haven't see Tom Hanks for a long time in the movie, quite surprise to see him in comedy movie, even more is his acting is really good. But because of the story, it less funny than other comedy movie. 
It could have been so good, the right actors were there, loved the economics professor, when he was on screen it was the only time I got a good laugh. 

Horrible Bosses (2011) review

Nick, Dale and Kurt are three friends. Nick and Dale both hate their bosses and Kurt likes his boss, that is until he dies and is replies by his drugged out son. They all wish they could get other jobs but for one reason or another, the risk involved in quitting is too high. The three joke about how much easier life would be if they killed their bosses but this joke soon becomes a reality when the three set out to kill each others bosses in order to live happier lives and this results in a series of events that the three never predicted.

This film is very funny but not necessarily because of the story line but more because of the interactions between the cast Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis who have all had success with their comedy performances in the past. Watching the movie you find that you don’t really care what happens next all you want to do is listen to the banter between the three and after a while the actual plot and story of the movie completely lose the focus of the viewer. You wont leave this movie saying “that movie was hilarious” but rather will leave saying “those guys were hilarious.”

Crazy Stupid Love (2011) review

Cal (Steve Carell) a middle aged average man is dumped by his wife of more than 20 years and begins to drink away his sorrows at a bar where he is noticed by a young ladies man, Jacob (Ryan Gosling). Jacob pities Cal and takes him as a sought of understudy as an attempt to make him forget his wife but Cals undying love for his wife during this whole period leads to some complicated confrontations later on when he tries to get back together with her.

The movie although somewhat funny, is very predictable and somewhat cliché. The movie offers no surprises and not long after it starts you realise it will be another predictable movie with a happy ending where the good guys win. Despite this there are some good performances by the cast and they do a very good job of keeping us watching even though we know whats going to happen and Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling work very well together to provide us with the comedic side which this movie relies upon.

21 Jump Street (2012) review

In this action-comedy Schidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are ready to leave their problems behind by joining the police force in the secret Jump Street unit. Their goal is to go undercover in a local high school and risk their lives to investigate the drug ring that is plaguing the city.

This was a very innovative movie with great action and comic scenes. It has high ratings on most review sites and has a great cast. The actors were perfect for their roles and the director had a good idea of how to make this movie enjoyable to watch. A must watch film!
