Movie Summary

Director:
Peter Billingsley
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Couples Retreat is the 2009 hit comedy from the hilarious hit-making team of Jon Favreau (Swingers, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Made, Zathura) and Vince Vaughn (The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Psycho, Clay Pigeons), directed by former A Christmas Story star Peter Billingsley. The story tells of four couples, all friends, who head for a luxury tropical island holiday resort at the behest of Jason (Jason Bateman, Extract, Juno, Horrible Bosses) and Cynthia (Kristin Bell, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Veronica Mars) who are keen to work on their marriage using the counseling element of the specialist resort. The other three couples, expecting scuba diving, jet skiing etc. are disconcerted to find that they, too, are expected to participate in the marriage skills enhancement regime which, of course, soon point up weaknesses in all their relationships.

Metacritic Score

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

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

    Variety Dennis Harvey

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

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    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.
