Failure to Launch

Matthew McConaughey is an overgrown mama's boy who just won't move out, despite his desperate parents' (Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw) gentle nudging. They realise more decisive action is in order and enlist the help of Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker), a professional nest-emptier who dates the losers in question, convinces them to leave home, then lets them go. Sounds simple? Not in this case. A romantic comedy with engaging turns by supporting cast Justin Bartha and Zooey Deschanel.
