Apr 22, 2013The failure of this film is the lack of any real chemistry and humour.Brendan N Super Reviewer
Dec 17, 2011Failure to Launch is yet another romantic comedy that relies far too much on the usual clichés you'd expect from the countless romantic comedies out there. Everything you'd expect from a romantic comedy is present, and that's not a good thing. Failure to Launch is a mess from start to finish. There are a few mildly funny parts, but the film has so many things wrong with it, that it overshadows the promising elements for this film. The film wasn't my cup of tea, and overall it was a poorly constructed film. Matthew McConaughey I find him to be very misplaced in these types of films, he just ruins his career with films like this. This film was awful, bland, and unimpressive. The Writing limitations show on-screen. The film really ends up being a silly affair after a while, and it becomes pretty annoying. This film had the potential in being a good film; instead director Tom Dey crafts a film that misses the mark in every respect. The lead actors are terrible here, and I don't recommend this film. If you're looking for a good comedy film, you won't find it with Failure to Launch. This is a complete misfire of a film, a film that could have been good, but suffers from a bad director and bad script. With that in mind, you can expect something very bad with this film. Failure to Launch is just like every other rom-coms, clichéd, predictable, silly and most of all, an unfunny, strained film that will bore the viewer.Alex r Super Reviewer
Nov 29, 2011Another formulaic romantic-comedy bursting at the seams with cliches, inane dialogue, and stiff acting. "Let me go powder my nose." God, how I hated this movie.
