This week Failure to Launch ponders Dr. Paradise, the story of the titular doctor, played by Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), and his medical practice on a tiny tropical island. He’s your classic grumpy arsehole doctor, so you’d expect him to have some redeeming feature to balance it out, right?
Well, add these things to the scale: He owns the island, he runs a casino, he bullies everyone around him and reminds them how much power he has over them and occasionally pulls his goldfish out of it’s tank for not fully explained reasons. Whatever’s on the redeeming end of the scale has to be pretty damn massive, right? Right?
