Larry Crowne

(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

This Tom Hanks-directed (and co-produced and co-written) rom-com is the neediest movie of the year, and one of the phoniest. Julia Roberts plays a washed-up community college instructor. Hanks plays a washed-up, laid-off divorcee who returns to school and winds up in guess who’s class. The problem here is the script, co-written by Nia Vardalos of My Big Fat Greek Wedding fame. It’s dull, unfunny and too generic to be enjoyable. I like Hanks and Roberts in general, but this reeks of A-list slumming.

When German magician Jan Rouven was 19, he made a pilgrimage to Las Vegas to see its magic shows. “I realized all the illusion gurus are located here in Vegas, and it made it somehow the magic capital of the world,” he says. “I always dreamed about bringing over my show to Vegas.” Ten years later, Rouven’s dream is finally coming true. After two years of successful limited engagements at Fremont Street’s Oktober FrightFest, Rouven is bringing his act to Vegas full time with his new show, Illusions, at the Clarion Hotel.
