Movie Review... of the week!

Yesterday was a rainy day, so I decided to go to the movie theater. I saw BAD TEACHER first and then LARRY CROWNE.

Here's my little review.

First, for BAD TEACHER:

You're going to love the easy-going and silly Cameron Diaz.  Of course, I've never seen any teachers who do that kinds of stuff in or outside of a classroom, but it's ridiculously fun.  Miss Diaz is fun and sexy. Justin Timberlake plays the nerdy teacher perfectly. As for Jason Segel, he is such a cutie.  I really like this actor, he's very charming .
Anyway, if you feel like laughing, you'll like BAD TEACHER, but I think you should wait 'til it's out on DVD to watch it.

The second movie I saw was LARRY CROWNE:


With two great actors in Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks, both winners of many awards, I was expecting an awesome movie.  It was quite good.  I like movies that are filmed in universities.It's a light and cute movie.

Julia Roberts plays the role of a college professor and she is great. I totally dig her laugh!!! She's really beautiful! As for Tom Hanks who plays the role of a  fired-from-a-Mart-riding-a-scooter-and-going-back-to-college man, he's quite good too. It's not a role that will get as much attention as he had in Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile, Castaway or even the Da Vinci Code.  He's just really innocent but smart. 
Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays the role of a lively student.  She's new to the big screen, because we mostly saw her in tv series. She's very lovely and refreshing.

I read some reviews on the web, but only after I saw Larry Crowne and I'm glad I didn't read them before, because most of them are quite negative.  I prefer to make my own mind on this.  
I liked it - I liked it better than Bad Teacher - actually I can't really put these two movies in the same category, but let's say that the movie Larry Crowne was a more likely plausible story than the other one.

8.5 / 10
