Finally, a movie that lives up to its title. Tripp (McConaughey) is a 35-year-old slacker still living with his parents (Bradshaw and Bates). They want him out, so they hire a woman, Paula (Parker), who specializes at getting grown men to move out of their parents' homes. Along the way characters are bitten by a chipmunk, a lizard, a dolphin, even a mockingbird. Both Parker and McConaughey play their usual smiling, glowing selves. Since this is a romantic comedy, they eventually fall in love. Guess Paula's not used to these freeloaders being buff and charming.
