Touchingly close to reality - yet really funny.
I think most people with a bit of intelligence would find this movie painful, and not just because you are meant to laugh at people getting hurt.
Enjoyed this light hearted humorous movie, one many parents can relate to.
Bit of a chick flick, had a few laughs (so did my husband), a bit predictable but easy to watch.
Overall I thought it was a pretty good movie
A good laugh. Light hearted and enjoyable.
A light and pleasant romantic comedy. Not madly funny but some good comedy bits. Not the best movie in the world but worth a look for a happy little story.
Bad - stupid animal parts (i.e. attacked by a squirell and dolphin). Very bad movie with poor acting and rediculous direction. The plot had potential but didn't eventuate.
Not very interesting at all. I could not stand the American accents in this movie. They annoyed the crap out of me. To me, the name of the move says it all !!!
What a waste!
Don't bother!!! Not funny or interesting AT ALL!
Totally predictable American, cheesy drivel!
A great light hearted movie to watch for a relaxing evening.
I have never been a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker, so I was pleasantly surprised by this.
It was funny and enjoyable. Parents with live at home kids will enjoy it.
two and a half stars
Good laugh. Fun combination of cast. Had seen it before, and still really enjoyed it again.
very funny i enjoyed having a great laugh
It was a little slow but good ending
This was ok, predictable but enjoyable
mmmmmmmm...okay. I love romantic comedies but this one I could move away from and not really miss anything.
Great movie. Very entertaining. The lengths that parents go to just to make their kids leave home. A must see movie.
enjoyable as i like watchind movies with matthew, but SJP really annoys me.
Much better than I expected! Of course we all know how it will end but it reaches the happy conclusion in very unconventional ways.
Great characters, intriguing plot and some hilarious moments make this one of the best romantic comedies seen in ages.
Truly one of the worst films ever to come out in recent times, it was neither funny nor romantic and the characters irritated me rather than charmed me.
very cute.....good chick flick
A little hard to believe in the basic premise of this film but I still enjoyed it.
This is right up there with his best movies that I have enjoyed and loved!!!! I agree with other reviews that Sarah Jessica could have been replaced with someone else! But it was great nonetheless!!!!!
So very funny and totally entertaining.
An entirely predictable but enjoyable film. There were some amusing moments, but there's nothing out of the ordinary here. For my money, the characters are less appealing as "How To Lose A Guy..." and "Fifty First Dates" etc - a good, middle of the road film.
Very lame storyline and although it was predictable, it was entertaining enough to wile away a couple of hours.
quite good this movie was
Opposites attract in some cases - quite good.
A nice, lightweight movie.Worth your time
A nice, lightweight movie. SJP's acting is just as superb as ever. A good movie to watch on a cold, rainy day with a cup of hot chocolate.
Though the ending was rather ordinary. Better than watching the football.
Matthew McCoughnay has found his niche. Same as How to lose a guy in 10 days. Not bad eye candy for the girls. Good popcorn movie.
Very funny and very sweet good chicks flick!
A Movie to be watched by everyone
for a love story it wa s ok
Loved it. Love Matthew McConaghey, especially as a 30 something singleton living with mum and dad. SJP played a great role also and even though predictable and a tad far fetched at times, fantastically funny for people who are still living with their parents or who have lived with their parents while in a relationship.
Feel good movie.
Get's better after the rock climbing.
Good light hearted fun movie - needing cheering up then this one is a must.
Nice and easy to watch with appropriate amount of eye candy!
Good entertainment.....loved all the actors- each one doing there part to keep the movie rolling along in all the right directions. The kind of movie you could watch a couple of times and still be entertained....
I don't particularly like Sarah Jessica Parker but she seemed to do an okay job in this movie. Overall, was fun to watch.
Stretched the imagination
Although this theme (money for sex which ends in real love) has been used over and over again this film is still worth watching, mainly due to the excellent cast especially Sarah Jessica Parker
I love the whole concept about the guy not wanting to move out.
I love matthew (that's a-given) .. but really, it's a great show, with a little twist!
Would have been nicer if it wasn't Sarah Jessica Parker, in my opinion.
Brought back memories, as I'm sure it does to many kids who stay home well into their 20's. Worth watching, great concept but maybe a little bit slow in parts!
A nice light-hearted movie. I also enjoyed watching the special features extra commentary etc
Funny movie, good to laugh at.
What a great surprise package this movie turned out to be!! Excellent casting - especially the parents. Quite a few 'laugh out loud' scenes as well, which was great. Loved it - a must see
Lightweight but likeable characters, barely rates its listing as a comedy but that's pretty typical these days. An easy way to while away a (short) evening. Entertaining enough.
much better than expected.
A typical RomCom with all the feel good moments, bad moments and the kiss and make up ending that one would expect. A bit of a laugh as well.
A couple of unknown quantities in this flick, whilst being fairly transparent, it did provide some good laughs - if you like this genre, you'll be familiar with the whole happy ending thing by now!
I guess it was better than what was available on TV
Predictable. Not humourous. The plot was not well explored.
This movie is a girl flick is was a very excellent watch.
Very enjoyable with a few laughs
I was pleasantly surprised with Failure To Launch. Great cast, plot and it's hilariously funny.
very basic comedy outline, quite weak in places and you now how it's going to end. Same kind of Matthew Mcconaughey type of movie he has been doing lately. Still don't understand the sillness of the dolphin scenes!
Very entertaining, greast storyline.
This was an enjoyable and funny movie. A good way to pass 2 hours.
Most baby boomers would relate to this movie
great movie very funny loved it a must watch
This was better than I expected. Sarah Jessica Parker's character was similar to her 'Sex and the City' turn, but with a bit of a twist. Some very lighthearted & hilarious moments & an unusual premise about not too young people 'failing to launch'away from their parents. Parents (incl. Kathy Bates) are fab, & Mathew M. (can't spell his last name?!) is really sizzling here. Enjoy!
A surprising performance by Sarah Jessica Parker matched up with Matthew McCaunachy. An very funny romantic comedy that is certainly worth a view.
