A very cute and funny movie. It took me a while to see this one,but I'm glad I did. I addad it top my dvd collection as a late entry. Mostly because Zooey. I could listen to her talk all day . I love the way she talks. And she has a wonderful singing voice as well. TOTAL PACKAGE ! ! ! !
A thirtysomething slacker suspects his parents of setting him up with his dream girl so he'll finally vacate their home.
At 35, Tripp has an interesting job, a hip car, a passion for sailing, and a great house - trouble is, he lives with his parents. They want him out, so they hire Paula, an "interventionist," who has a formula in these cases: chance encounter, get him to ask her out, involve him in a trauma, meet his friends and get their nod, delay sex, have him teach her something, then launch him. It's worked up to now, but this gets complicated when Tripp thinks she's getting too serious and one of his pals is attracted to Paula's deadpan, semi-alcoholic roommate, who's plagued by a mockingbird. Too many secrets may scrub the launch, and what if Paula really likes him? Who can intervene then?
