Tom Hanks Dancing in Joe Versus the Volcano

Buzz Time Machine: Tom Hanks Gets His Groove on in Joe Versus the Volcano

Tom Hanks stars in Larry Crowne this weekend, bringing his iconic charm to a role of a middle-aged man going back to college. When we talked about our favorite Tom Hanks movies, I couldn't stop thinking about how much I loved him in 1990's Joe Versus the Volcano. As Joe Banks, he's a working stiff who gets a brief taste of luxury when he agrees to jump in the volcano of a tropical island (if you've never seen it, stop reading this and rent it). When he gets stuck on his floating luggage en route to the island and starts to get a little loopy from dehydration, Joe pulls out a goofy dance that's one of my favorite Hanks moments ever.
