HERMOSA BEACH - The two super stars of the movie Larry Crowne were in Hermosa Beach promoting their latest movie which by early accounts will not be around very long.

Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, two names who use to practically guarantee that a film would be a success are in no way blaming themselves for the motion pictures low attendance figures.

Both stars spoke with Hollywood Innuendo's Fajita San Guacamole and admitted that they were extremely disappointed at the fact that people are not flocking to see their movie.

Hanks said that he blames it on the fact that the movie has one of the most unmemorable titles in recent movie history. He said that when someone hears the name Larry Crowne they have no idea on earth what the movie could possibly be about.

He told Miss San Guacamole that dozens of his friends have told him that if they had not known they would have thought that the movie was about an alcoholic dentist, or a perverted gynecologist, or even a gay proctologist.

Julia Roberts meanwhile also blamed the movie's poor showing on the title. She said that a better title would have been Old Larry Crowne Returns To College And Spends Lots of Time Fantasizing About The Scantily Clad Co-Eds.

Or she said that the film's producer Garry "Go-Go" Gogolivinski could have simply called it Horny Old Larry Crowne Goes Back To College And Finally Scores.

Mr. Gogolivinski is hoping that the film makes at least enough money to pay Hanks and Roberts their exorbitant movie salaries plus still have a little bit left over for him to be able to pay for his upcoming deflated ego therapy sessions.

SIDENOTE: Gogolivinski told Hollywood Innuendo that he is just thrilled as hell that he did not film the movie in 3D or on location.
