Failure to Launch (10-Mar-2006)

Director: Tom Dey

Writers: Tom J. Astle; Matt Ember

Keywords: Romantic Comedy

A thirty-five-year old man content with living with his parents falls for an "interventionist" hired by his family.

ABSTRACT
Tripp is a thirty-five-year old man living at home with kindly parents Al and Sue, doing so despite his interesting professional life and handsome looks. Years of failed suggestions that Tripp move out push his parents to the breaking point, resulting in their hiring of Paula, an "interventionist" skilled at building up a man's confidence to the point that he can be "launched" out of his living situation. Complications arise when Paula's staged affection towards Tripp blossoms into a legitimate romance, drawing the ire of his parents and pals fearing their friend might be left heartbroken.
