Critic Reviews for Failure to Launch
Verging on the preposterous, director Tom Dey's Failure To Launch relies on attractive stars to overcome its lackluster execution.
The movie's notion of humor is exemplified by Bradshaw's extended nude scene.
As listless and phony as Failure to Launch may be, it does have one secret weapon in Zooey Deschanel.
Add to this a confused moral message and it's clear that, as its title inadvertently suggests, this romantic comedy never gets off the ground.
Once again, Matthew McConaughey creates an aura, a force-field of unfunniness. A man-sized block of Unfunny Kryptonite from the Planet Unfunny, killing off all the funny within a 1,000-yard radius.
Audience Reviews for Failure to Launch
Yeah, it's not the best, and Matthew McConaughey looks damn rough for "35", but sometimes a rom com is just the thing, and this is a cute idea and fairly inoffensive. Zooey Deschanel as well in a small role.
By the numbers romcom nearly completely stolen by ZD as the quirky nutjob support girlfriend. The best thing seen with SJP though, by far.
It gets three stars purely for Zooey Deschanel and that bloody bird! Deschanel is quirky and funny in this Funnyish movie!
