Couples Retreat

Based on an original idea of Vince Vaughn’s and co-written by his Swingers buddy Jon Favreau, this comedy follows four couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet-ski and enjoy some fun in the sun. They soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. Suddenly, their group-rate holiday comes at a price.

Those involved got to spend weeks at a Bora Bora luxury resort; all we get is this not lousy but unmemorable tropical-vacation comedy.

An R-rated version of this mess would be only more gratingly dishonest as it tried to hide its weak sentimentality behind a fig leaf of vulgarity.

The cast got to spend a month shooting on Bora Bora. So that explains why they're in the movie. Why you'd spend good money for a ticket to watch them have all the fun and not have any fun yourself passes understanding.

Among the better things in the movie, I count Vaughn's well-timed and smart dialogue.

A comedy about couples in counselling, Couples Retreat's only real appeal lies with its ensemble cast, who take a stab at making something of a lacklustre script by Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau.

A good idea for a sophisticated comedy lurks within the latest Jon Favreau-Vince Vaughn collaboration, Couples Retreat, but the filmmakers lack the courage of their convictions. So the payoff is mixed at best.

Very few laughs were had. And why do all these overweight men have beautiful wives with killer bodies?

I totally agree that the cast decided to shoot a movie there just so they could get a holiday out of it. VERY VERY disappointing and quite literally there are 2 laughs that aren't in the trailer, and those two jokes get overplayed!

A trailer and 3 preview scenes in, I reckon "Couples Retreat," is the type of movie set in the mould of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Swingers. Here's hoping with a cast like Vaughn, Bateman and Reno it'll have the comedy chops to entertain for the whole film. If it doesn't... well at least its got Malin Akerman and Kirsten Bell.
