Failure to Launch Reviews
p.s: naked room? seriously?
Matthew McConaughey is fairly stereotypical McConaughey here in these roles (I prefer him in more serious roles like Two for the Money). Oddly enough I didn't think Sarah Jessica Parker was THAT annoying here. But this film's saving grace was Zooey Deschanel. Absolutely stunning and vibrant with a fantastic, quick-witted sense of humor. Without her, this crapfest stinks. She steals the show....
Failure to Launch has a wickedly ludicrous plot, and a serious lack of chemistry between the two leads. But it relies on its charm and sense of humor, and mildly succeeds in entertaining.
Major points for the paintball scene as well.
Not bad... don't go out of your way. But it's better than some of the other fluff out there.
If you liked Riley in National Treasure, Justin Bartha steals a few scenes in this one....
If you like "How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days", I'm pretty sure you're guaranteed to like this.
