Failure To Launch
(D: Tom Dey, 97 min)
Sarah Jessica Parker follows up her respectable turn in that dark rom-com The Family Stone with Failure To Launch . Matthew McConaughey plays a 30-something guy who still lives with his middle-aged parents ( Kathy Bates and former footballer Terry Bradshaw ). Parker is hired by the folks to lure him out of the family nest. With a title like this, the headlines will practically write themselves if this movie bombs. Opens Friday (March 10). Screened after press time - see reviews for this and The Shaggy Dog March 9 at www.nowtoronto.com/film.
