After watching, or should I say 'surviving', Larry Crowne, I'd say Tom Hanks should stop doing comedies.
Tom was great in all those 80's goofball comedies like Bachelor Party, Splash, Turner and Hooch, The Man With One Red Shoe, Big, and Joe Versus The Volcano.
In the 90's, he became a serious actor with one big hit after another. However, he managed to deliver the laughs in a few films. He was hilarious in A League Of Their Own, Sleepless in Seatle, and Forrest Gump. You've Got Mail was pretty good, too.
In the 00's, he was really funny in Catch Me If You Can and The Ladykillers. Charlie Wilson's War and The Terminal were unfunny and forgettable roles.
I just think Tom Hanks should stick to doing more serious roles like the ones in Road to Perdition, The Green Mile, Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away, and Apollo 13.
Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close is the just the kind of movie that he should be in. I can see him winning a third Oscar in the near future if he sticks to the dramatic roles.
