Movie Review: Failure to Launch

Monday, July 17, 2006
We watched the movie Failure to Launch last night, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker in a movie about a 30-something guy who still lives with his parents and the girl hired to make him fall in love and move out.

While the plot is rather thin, this is far more enjoyable than the last film I recall seeing Matthew McConaughey in: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (not linked because it WAS that bad.) He and Sarah Jessica Parker have decent chemistry and his parent (played by Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw) did a fun job of playing back-up. There was certainly enough comedy to go around and very little of it was offensively stupid.

So, as a "date movie", I'd say this one is pretty watchable. Like I said, the plot is pretty thin but it's not a movie to watch for the plot. It's a movie to watch with your special friend and laugh and enjoy without having to think about it too much. And there, it succeeds.

Final word on "Failure to Launch": Rent it; it'll make her happy without making you sad.
