Film information

Story: Romantic comedy double-bill with Matthew McConaughey. In 'Failure to Launch' (2006), McConaughey plays Tripp, a thirtysomething slacker who is content to remain living at his parents' house, getting his mother (Kathy Bates) to do his laundry while he gets on with the serious business of lazing around. In order to force Tripp to finally flee the nest, his parents hire beautiful and vivacious Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker) to pretend to fall in love with him and convince him to move out. What follows is a romantic battle of wills as Tripp does his best to keep hold of his easy life. In 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' (2003), Andie (Kate Hudson) works on the advice column of a woman's magazine, but she yearns to be a serious journalist. When her friend, Michelle, complains of being dumped, and her editor (Bebe Neuwirth) is looking for someone to write an article on how to win and lose a man in 10 days, Andie jumps at the chance; witnessed by two women from an advertising agency. Ben (McConaughey), meanwhile, works for the same advertising firm and is trying to win a place on a very big account with a diamond firm. Egged on by his two female colleagues, Ben tells his boss that he is the man for the job as he can make any woman fall for him within 2 weeks. The scene is set, Ben and Andie are set up to choose each other for their hidden agendas and the pair find that they have to work twice as hard to succeed...
