John & Becky’s Movie Review of Couple’s Retreat

couplesretreatBecky and I went to see the new Vince Vaughn comedy Couple’s Retreat on Friday night at the AMC theater in Highlands Ranch, CO with our friends Jerry & Linda. The Fandango website at Couple’s Retreat describes the movie as follows:

“Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love star in Universal Pictures’ upcoming comedy “Couples Retreat.” Based on an original idea of Vaughn’s, the comedy follows four Midwestern 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, spa 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 vacation comes at a price. What follows is a hilarious look at real world problems faced by all couples. The film also stars Kali Hawk and Jean Reno.”

The Review
Couple’s Retreat is a crack-up. The theater was sold-out when we went on Friday night. It did over $35 million at the box office this Weekend, so tons of people were ready to see this one on the big screen from the commercials and previews. It really delivered with plenty of laughs. All the characters in the movie were great. I think they had every personality in the film and that’s of the things that made it so funny since we’ve all met these people before.

Vince Vaughn helped write the script, which was surprising. Since the film had plenty of thought and dealt with the different kinds of relationships beyond just the comedy aspect of the film. There were also some good lines and situations, more than what we saw on the Previews. Frankly, I thought they were going to give the whole movie away with the commercials. It was a pretty light-hearted film with a good message about relationships, sticking together, working things out and there were some very funny situations the characters found themselves.

We all left the film feeling good with a happy ending everyone was waiting for and that was nice for a change!
