Failure to launch - Movie Review

If you want a movie that merges nature’s top biters with some of Hollywood’s top-paid actors, Failure to launch is just the movie for you. 

Starring the academy award winner Matthew McConaughey as Tripp an adventurous 35- year old, who refuses to move out of his parent’s house for one reason or another. In fact, he uses his living condition as a way to keep the women in his life at bay whenever they seem to get too attached.

His loving parents are played by the amazing Terry Bradshaw and Kathy Bates, who don’t let him do any of the chores or help them in any shape or form and yet wonder why he hasn’t moved out yet. However, they get desperate to kick him out after they hear about their neighbor’s rendezvous once their son moved out.

Enter the gorgeous Paula performed by the Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker, a professional interventionist who uses both seduction and psychology to inspire grown men to move out. She believes that men with low self-esteem have problems walking away from their parents thus “Failure to launch” 

Tripp’s parents hire Paula to subtly kick him out of the house as they grow more determined to make him leave.

Through a series of events and meeting his weird friends (Bradley Cooper and Justin Bartha) that don’t see anything wrong with their friend’s lifestyle as they as well have adopted it, Paula and Tripp get closer. 

But as the lies grow greater and their feelings grow stronger, facing a heartbreak is inevitable and all it takes is to ruin everything is one mockingbird.

 The movie is fun to watch, but don’t expect it to reveal something hidden inside of you or to watch some Oscar-worthy acting.
