Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts were given a less than Hollywood reception for the Spanish release of their film Larry Crowne.
A poster for the film that shows the lovestruck duo riding a scooter without helmets has fallen foul of Spain's advertising watchdog, who slammed a €30,000 fine on the poster's distributor, Tripictures. To the surprise of Hanks and Roberts, promoting reckless driving has been banned in Spanish ads since 1985.
Still, a source at Tripictures is incensed. "When the fine showed up in the post we thought it was a joke," an insider told the Cinemania website. "We didn't even expect something like this when we distributed the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."
