According to IMDB we have 2 composers writing Additional music but is there a main composer assigned to this project? Maybe the movie is full of songs and only few minutes of score were necesary?

Music Department
Chris Bacon .... composer: additional music
John Finklea .... music editor
Mark Graham .... head of music preparation
Peter Rotter .... music contractor
Stuart Michael Thomas .... composer: additional music

This movie has to be the ninth Julia Roberts movie scored by James Newton Howard if I am not mistaken.

I truly hope that when their tenth "collaboration" arrives someone (Silva Screen perhaps?) could do a Julia Roberts - James Newton Howard compilation CD with music from all their movies together to celebrate this. Anyone else up for this idea?

And the soundtrack, coming on Rhino, features only one James Newton Howard score track called "French Toast."

Yes! That'd give James Fitzpatrick the chance to record the lovely Flatliners end title

Well I saw the film today and there wasn't a lot of original music. Most of it was very laid back rock with electric guitar and some drums. It seemed to be trying to give the film a quasi-bad boy feel to give Larry Crowne a feel of the badass biker. I can see why its not getting a release.

It's been a very long time since I've seen a comedy in the theaters, so I'm looking forward to this movie. I'm glad to see Tom Hanks finally returning to comedy, and given the choice of seeing either this or Transformers 3, I'll gladly take this.

I join you Mutant.

This movie has two things in it I will avoid going to the movies for, at all costs.

Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks.

Next Watermelon please.

Cue Mr. Conti!

It's an extremely sweet movie. A delightful antidote to all the summer popcorn dross.

A nice score and also, Mr Hanks must be an ELO fan. Jeff Lynn songs feature over both the opening and closing credits.

It seems to play all the time on HBO. I find it a delightful little film.

Good movie (probably one of 2011's most underappreciated films) but the score is rather dull (and is rather sparse). I had hoped Hanks would hire Alan Silvestri to score it (seeing how this was positioned similar to the Silvestri-scored Forrest Gump, with the everyman hero and the July opening) but beggars can't be choosers.

Actually, the Pretty Woman OST has no score on this at all.

I just wasted a couple of hours on this crappy movie. I kind of understand why Tom Hanks doesn't direct more movies, this was just his second feature as a director.

James Newton Howard's score was kind of nice though, very blues-rock based. If this had been in the 80s, JNH had used synclaviers only I guess...

Refreshing to see that the composer can write also this kind of music, and that he eschews the orchestra on certain projects. A pity that there is only one track of score on the album though.
