Far better than the low rating

It's not going to win an Oscar, but it's not an awful movie. I think the people who enjoy this can probably relate to a character which leads me to think it's the slightly more mature audience. Those who rated it low probably enjoy crap like Gods of Egypt. Enough said. Sit back, relax, and don't take it too seriously. Enjoy the gorgeous views of Bora Bora

Hate it or love it

It's been quite awhile since Vince V. and Jon F. were together on screen. Finally the two are back together. And even though this effort never reaches "Swingers" in any sense, it's still a lot of fun. If you let yourself into it that is of course.

You may have noticed quite a few people hating on the movie here. And it's quite clear, that some people took the bad things of the movie and picked on them. Yes it is predictable, yes quite a few things wouldn't happen like that in real life. But why should they be real? Maybe the "Swingers" comparison made some people expect something else (in their minds)?

Vince Vaughn for example has his usual moments, but he doesn't play the same guy he plays in every other movie. He is the one who is settled in this one (you'll see what I mean when you watch it). Jason Bateman is great and you have quite a few comedians popping up along the way, doing their thing. Again you can enjoy those hilarious moments or you can start hating (maybe because you'd wish there really was such an "resort" where you could go yourself?).

Don't expect anything philosophical (the ending being a perfect example for that, being a bit rushed and all),instead enjoy the weirdness you are about to witness (even a "duel" that might be one of the worst/best you have witnessed yet ...)

Couples Retreat

I will be honest and say that I think I was more interested in the good cast of stars more than much else about this film, and I had seen that the critics gave it rather low ratings, but I was prepared to give it a go anyway. Basically four couples are focused: married Guitar Hero dealer Dave (Vince Vaughn) and stay at home mother Ronnie (The Heartbreak Kid's Malin Akerman),Jason (Jason Bateman) and Cynthia (Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Kristen Bell) who are trying and failing to conceive, married high school sweethearts Joey (Jon Favreau) and Lucy (Sex and the City's Kristin Davis),and recently separated from his wife Shane (Elf's Faizon Love) and his twenty year old girlfriend Trudy (Kali Hawk). All the couples have something in common, they are struggling to make their relationships work and some of their passion is fading, so as part of a four couples package they travel together to a couples' retreat on a tropical island. It is obvious that Jason and Cynthia really want to go with the program and sort their marriage that is in trouble, while the other couples just want to take in the sights and have fun in the sun, they assume that the couples' exercises will be simple talk together sessions, but they are wrong. The program devised by resort owner Marcel (Jean Reno) requires the couples to get up very early in the morning, take part in strenuous yoga exercise sessions, and more unusual methods of communication and trust, including swimming with sharks. In the process Ronnie and Dave thought they were fine but realise there are some problems, Joey is keen to explore the opposite island for single people where they indulge in a lot of sex, Trudy is keen perhaps to find another kind of man, and the others are in and out of the program trying to sort things out. Resort host Sctanley (Peter Serafinowicz) threatens to report the bad vibes between the couples to Marcel, but following a game of Guitar Hero they all sort themselves out and complete the therapy, and reestablishing their love for each other they are all allowed to enjoy a vacation in the tropics. Also starring Tasha Smith as Jennifer, Carlos Ponce as Salvadore and Temuera Morrison as Briggs. The cast I suppose do alright, there are some amusing moments when the couples are together trying to sort their disagreements and reignite their love, but it is all predictable, the characters are a little stereotypical, and there are not enough great jokes in the script or to watch, a disappointing relationship comedy. Okay!
