This movie was not only funny, it was sweet and a visual treat with a good moral. That in itself is reason enough to watch it, in this day of selfishness and disrespect for marriage. It was a fun ride. Some near nudity, a man's butt was exposed for a moment but that's all. Nudity is implied at that point but it's for a funny reason and shows nothing else. No sexual implications at that time either.

Four couples take a trip to help one of the couples get some help for what they believe is their failing marriage. The other couples are just along for the ride but the tables are turned on them when they are told there is no free ride at this retreat. You either work on your relationship or you go home. Thinking they can just skate into and out of each "session" and then get back to the fun because their relationships don't need any work, the other three couples say surprising things to "fill in the time" and make it appear that they're living up to their end of the bargain. Their thoughtless comments lead to some pretty funny counseling sessions and, as expected, they learn a thing or two, not only about their spouses but about themselves. In the end, it's all "Encouragement!"

This is a funny movie about four couples going on a retreat. One couple went to fix their marriage. The other three couples were tricked into going. They thought it was going to be a lot of free fun. But after their first day they found out they had to fallow the program to fixing their marriage in order to stay. Fixing a marriage that they didn't know needed fixing. There is a lot of fun and laughs in this movie. But I just think the ending could have been better. It kind of sucked.

My wife and I went and saw this in theaters and knew right away it was a movie we needed to own. We now purchase everything blu-ray since it's only a few dollars more and quality of video/audio is definitely worth it. An avid blu-ray couple must of this in their collection!

I had been waiting for this movie to come out on DVD so I could see it. As huge Vince Vaughn fans, my fiance and I have enjoyed all of his movies. Since my husband-to-be detests romantic comedies, I had high hopes that this would be the perfect blend of romantic comedy for me and classic, funny Vince Vaughn for him.

It did not disappoint. It is a hilarious movie, and I think everyone can relate to at least one of the couples' situations. It is Vince Vaughn at his best. Yes, it is predictable in some ways and cheeky in others. But, it is light-hearted, funny, and can appeal to a wide audience, though I would not recommend it for children.

It is not a frat boy movie or cult classic, like Wedding Crashers, but it is a great date movie, from the funny lines to the physical comedy. I think the cast was perfect for it, and you'll find yourself quoting some of the great lines from the movie.

So remember, "be an ass" for Couples Retreat. :)

This is a really great movie. I watch it all the time. It's really like a mini vacation. The well-framed scenery is almost as refreshing as being there yourself, and the plot is cute enough, with solid messages mixed in between stupid jokes (both of which I love). I can't think of a better movie for capturing the "resort experience" - and I've looked.

I was debating whether to give this movie a 3 star or a 4 star. Too bad Amazon doesn't let you rate in 0.5 stars.
I liked the movie overall, though I admit the main reason I rented it was because Jean Reno was playing the couples therapy guru (loved his role & performance).
Vince Vaughn's character would probably be considered stuffy and uptight for a comedy, but unfortunately he just happens to be my type and I'm biased towards him.
I found Jon Favreau's character hilarious and fun for the most part; he would've been my favorite character, had he not thrown some very personally off-putting offhand remarks.
I feel the movie didn't do Faizon Love's character justice; least development opportunities IMHO due to his physical condition and the fact that his "spouse" is a party-girlish young woman who's way too young for him; it's as if the film put Shane there, just so there'd be a token minority. And the backstory with his ex-wife lacked the most substance - can't feel for their successfully newfound love (except the fact that it's simply stated so).
Jason Bateman's character all but ruined the entire film for me (would've considered purchasing it if I didn't had him so much). I just downright loathed his utterly self-centered and self-absorbed personality all throughout the movie. He was probably (intentionally) helpful ONCE in the entire film for something that he didn't have any personal stake, and a real jerk the rest of the time. I would've much better preferred it if Jason got things a lot tougher than everyone else in the end (and actually had to work much harder to earn his happy ending).
Also, I wish the wives had a bit more of their own personalities, too (with the exception of Trudy).
