This movie gives just what you would expect from Vince Vaughn, funny and side bending laughter. This is a great movie and delivers the comedy from all the characters along with a performance that make the movie great!

I wasn't expecting much from the previews but this has some funny moments in it. The scenery at the resort was really pretty.

If you are in need of a few laughs (or in this case...many), watch this movie. Many movies have certain parts that stand out, but this entire movie is great.

"You can glimpse the plot of the movie from the title, it is exactly what it says, only completely lame with over-the-hill actors getting richer while wasting our money! I wonder why some people think empty acting can be funny. What happened to smart jokes, even silly jokes that will leave you breathless? Having Vince Vaughn in this movie is a total insult to him; another example how having funny people in a stupid movie doesn't make it funnier!"
Did you see the trailer? If so, you saw most of the good pa

"Directed by Peter Billingsley (Ralphie, Christmas Story), Couples Retreat is essentially a reason for Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau to take a vacation to a tropical paradise. Along the way they decided to make a movie. Conveniently enough, the movie is about friends and their spouses taking a vacation.

When PowerPoint Ranger Jason (Jason Bateman) and his wife Ronnie (Malin Akerman) start to have problems in their relationship - most likely brought on by their OCD and obsession with slideshows - they drag fellow couples Dave (Vince Vaughn) and Cynthia (Kristen Bell), Joey (Jon Favreau) and Lucy (Kristin Davis), & Shane (Faizon Love) and his new fling to Eden, a vacation hot-spot for couples-building that looks like a screen saver, with promises of jet-skiing and beachside alcoholic drinks. Unfortunately for them, they are going to Eden West, a place for married couples to get new-age counseling with team-building, psychiatry, trust exercises and oddball philosophy involving early awakenings and shark adventures. What it's lacking, however, is fun; it's lacking Eden East, the singles side of the island. As contrived and predictable as this is, you already know where this is going.

Missing the "are you for scuba"-vibe from Along Came Polly, I spent the majority of the movie, and especially the trailer highlight shark scene - one claimed by many as the most comical - wishing for a repeat of the shark scene from The Beach.

Despite the cast's obvious chemistry and solid acting, there was just too much kvetching about relationship quandaries to hold throughout the movie, and very little comedy for the mortar. As I've commented on another's review, the reason the rom-coms lose steam in the last act is the requirement to learn heart warming lessons. Made all the more unbelievable because the lessons are learned at a party on Eden East, a place and event just as vacuous as the movie itself. I guess my appreciation for the cast set me up for failure, and potential was not met.

"I had heard a lot of negative things about this movie. But if one believes others views of movies, before seeing it themselves, sometimes you loose. The movie was great, absolutely great. My husband and some friends watched it back to back and had many laughs. Please don't believe what others say check things out for yourself."
