SNMR 5.3: "Failure to Launch"

Tonight's SNMR feature is "Failure to Launch" (2006, PG-13, 96 minutes), starring Matthew McConaughey, Sara Jessica Parker, Zooey Deschanel, Justin Bartha, Bradley Cooper, Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw. The film was directed by Tom Dey.

PLOT SUMMARY: Tripp (McConaughey) is a 35 year old who still lives with his parents. Who can blame him? It's free, he's got a great room and mom (Kathy Bates) does the laundry. Desperate to get him out of the house, his parents hire a gorgeous woman, Paula (Parker), to give him a little... push. They just didn't expect Tripp to push back!

MY OPINION: I enjoyed this movie. The story was typical romantic comedy fodder, but that's okay. The premise of the film was interesting and the script was decently written. Matthew McConaughey is a really likable actor and believable in every role I've seen him in. Sarah Jessica Parker was adequate in her role as the hired date. One thing about Parker though is that she looks too thin. Unhealthy thin. She definitely was better looking in her younger days. The two actors that stole the movie were Terry Bradshaw and Zooey Deschanel. Especially Bradshaw because he's not really an actor but still was very funny. The other cast members were fine.

The special features on the DVD were well done.

Overall a good date movie.

My hubby loves Zooey. This was an all right movie - Terri Bradshaw definitely brought the bulk of the laughs here!
