Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy. It fails to make the lead characters interesting and their love affair believable.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor Did the director, Tom Dey, favor quick cutting for some reason? Perhaps because he couldn't stand to look at any one shot for very long? That's the way I felt.

USA Today Full Review
Poor This would-be romantic comedy is neither. The premise is misbegotten, the chemistry non-existent and the dialogue leaden.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 284 moviegoers:Females of all ages LOVED "Failure to Launch," and the males weren't too far behind. Approximately three-quarters of all moviegoers gave an opinion of "Very Good," or higher, which is great. Also great is that most of the remaining third rated this movie "Good," which is a bit on the low side, but still indicates a movie they enjoyed. I have no problem recommending "Failure to Launch."
