Brian Lowry
Variety
An especially slight romantic comedy whose modest charms are derived largely from its supporting players. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker look and act, quite attractively, like grown-ups, and their easy rapport makes them convincing and appealing as an on-screen couple. So all throughout Failure to Launch, I found myself wishing they were in a different movie, maybe one as sophisticated as "The Philadelphia Story," which the movie references, but doesn't remotely live up to.

Claudia Puig
USA Today
The premise is misbegotten, the chemistry non-existent and the dialogue leaden. Did we mention how tediously the plot unfolds? Full Review

ReelViews
Failure to Launch fails at more than just launching. It fails at romance and comedy. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Thanks largely to Ms. Parker and to the delectable Zooey Deschanel as her anhedonic house-mate, the filmmakers still manage to squeeze some juice out. Full Review
