An awkward moment follows the arguement over who's prettier

On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
35/52 Les Winan Shockingly not godawful. The entire cast (including Terry Bradshaw) is more memorable than Sarah Jessica Parker.
74/159 David Mumpower The movie proves to be relatively charming, an improved version of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, if you will.

Digg Button  
Everyone has known a guy like this at some point in their life. You know, the guy who insists on living at home with his parents, sponging off of them even though he's in his 30s. Sort of a George Constanza type, if you will.

Matthew McConaughey will star as just such a guy in Failure to Launch for director Tom Dey (Shanghai Noon) and Paramount Pictures. He'll play a guy who's totally content to continue living in his folks' house as long as they'll allow it. When he meets the girl of his dreams one day, he falls for her hard, even seeing her as potentially being "the one". The problem? He suspects his parents have set him up with her with the nefarious intention of getting him out of their home.

Playing the part of McConaughey's dream girl will be Sarah Jessica Parker, with supporting cast members including Justin Bartha and Zooey Deschanel. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
