FtL 207 – Shangri-la Plaza

An unwilling donut store owner becomes the center of a love triangle for two creepy mechanics. Everybody sings about it. Poorly. Except for those who rap about it. Poorly.

This week’s Failure to Launch examines Shangri-La Plaza, the musical strip mall where everything you need is under one roof. Provided you’re somehow capable of sustaining yourself on donuts, frozen yogurt and child neglect.

Along for the ride is the world’s most indignant cafe employee (who is as likeable as she sounds), a crippled gang leader (who is even less threatening than he sounds) and a precocious 8 year old (who is actually fine. We’ve got no beef with her).
