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.
