Reviews
ReviewSource Variety.com
Review Although not nearly as bad as its title, "Failure to Launch" is an especially slight romantic comedy whose modest charms are derived largely from its supporting players. Conspicuously inspired by magazine articles about a trendy, "Oprah"-worthy syndrome -- adult children unwilling to leave their parents' homes -- the filmmakers pad the movie's allotted time with over-the-top interludes in pursuit of a screwball tone. Blessed with some crowd-pleasing elements, "Launch" should enjoy modest appeal among the weekend-date crowd but, to borrow its terminology, it doesn't seem destined to fully achieve liftoff.

Review During the course of "Failure to Launch," characters are bitten by a chipmunk, a dolphin, a lizard and a mockingbird. I am thinking my hardest why this is considered funny, and I confess defeat. Would the movie be twice as funny if the characters had also been bitten by a Chihuahua, a naked mole rat and a donkey? I was bitten by a donkey once. It was during a visit to Stanley Kubrick's farm, outside London.

Quotes
Gene Shalit, Today ...a bright and breezy romantic comedy.
Connie Ogle, Miami Herald Bradshaw, who is funnier than you might suspect, also turns out to be the most fearless of performers.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post ...the best comedy since I don't know when.
