Failure to Launch Reviews
I'm not exactly a sucker for romantic comedies, so this whole film annoyed me to my core. Honestly, the story line makes no sense to me at all. It was predictable and cliché. SJP's character's job is absolutely idiotic. The stupidity of it all was actually the only thing in this whole movie that made me laugh. The comedy of this romance was epic fail that nobody I can imagine would find funny.
I would not recommend this hot piece of cheesy shit to anyone.
peace out, bitches
I still can't figure out if Sarah Jessica Parker is actually attractive or has some kind of mind-bending device that makes the world believe she is (a general comment not having to do with the movie in particular)
For the most part, McConaghey keeps his shirt on. Big mistake.
You know who DOES take his shirt off? For an entire scene?? Terry Bradshaw. Oh, and not just his shirt.
The DVD has no outtake/gag reel. That would have needed a separate stand-alone six-disc bonus materials special feature release.
Hollywood, listen to me: Zooey Deschanel is underused talent.
I don't get the dead former girlfriend / "nephew" plot line, unless you need to have an adorable child in your movie, which you don't.
The animals biting him and that being a metaphor for living your life...what???
The life preserver metaphor at the end??
Suddenly it's the mom who wants to fix everything? Oh, and this is my surprised face to learn that it's HER issues that make her keep her son at home @ 35. Crimeny.
Locking them in, in order to repair the damage? Extreme.
He FORGIVES her? Not only that, he forgives his PARENTS??
Oh, for god's sake.
