SCENE IT: There's No Crying In Baseball!

Hard to imagine today, but in the late-80s Tom Hanks was a joke, an almost was/premature has-been who today would be compared to Chris Klein or David Spade. He started out well in TV, scored couple of hits at the movies -Splash and Big- but otherwise swam in a puddle of forgettable to horrible films with various degrees of in-success.

Who would've thought that Gary Marshall of all people would be the one to truly understand his impeccable comedic timing and sheer talent, and put right back on track for what would soon become an astounding career revival.

So here's my favorite scene from his "comeback" movie, also my favorite Tom Hanks scene which in under a minute summarize everything I love about the guy.
