Review

"A Roller Coaster Ride Of Love, Emotion,... And Comedy." --Tom Saab, CFFA

"Many Couples Will Learn Lessons From This Film." --The Dove Foundation

Product Description

Awarded the Dove Foundation's "Family Seal of Approval" and recommended for ages twelve and over, Marriage Retreat is a Faith-based Family comedy in the tradition of Couples Retreat. Produced in 2011, this heartfelt and funny feature film includes a well-known ensemble cast in both Secular and Christian markets. Jeff Fahey (Lost, Machete, Wyatt Earp), David A.R. White (In The Blink of an Eye, The Visitation), Reginald Vel Johnson (Die Hard 1 & 2, Family Matters), Victoria Jackson (Soccer Mom, Saturday Night Live), Anna Zielinski (Coach Carter) and Tommy Blaze (Run On, Rumpelstiltskin) star in this funny, heartfelt story about the difficulties many marriages face and the simple solution. A trio of unhappily married couples head to a mountain retreat where they are subjected to unorthodox and seemingly comical methods by the Dr. Sullivan (FAHEY) and his wife Katrina (JACKSON). As the couples struggle through the program for marital bliss, they soon discover it s not "What" they are missing from their lives but "Who", Jesus. Marriage Retreat is a comical and at times serious look at others as they display the problems of each marriage.

Awarded Dove Foundation's Family Seal of Approval with 4 out of 5 Doves & recommended for ages 12 and over.

BONUS FEATURES: Behind The Scenes, Trailers & English Subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and a message presented in family format November 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Comedy abounds within a serious look at 3 couples who decide to attend a marriage retreat center. The guys planned on getting their wives fixed while they golfed and fished, and the gals hoped their men would get shaped up. Not only was there humor in their weekend ahead, but also enough conflict to cause each couple to face the true issues in their marriages. It's a Christian look at marriage repair, right down to the Holy Bibles supplied by the retreat center for each 'camper.' Yes, it's an outdoor, rustic setting, beautiful scenery, and a place in California to be coveted, if coveting over a Christian film location is allowed.

Of course the retreat owners Dr Craig and Katrina Sullivan use some rather unorthodox methods to bring success to the couples who are quickly identified as on the verge of real troubles. This couple is fantastic, singly & as a team. Jeff Fahey is the Dr., a burned out, in-your-face, negative counselor; while Victoria Jackson plays the blonde, upbeat, whiny voiced, cheerleader type. They set the high bar for the acting in this film. Faith-based filming has certainly advanced in quality.

The three couples have 2 real husband/wife pairs. Claire (Andra Logan White)is the film/real wife of Mark (David A.R. White-actor, prod) who wants no kids and is yet untold of her pregnancy. Donna (Anna Zielinski-actress, prod) is so pregnant she's about to burst and is film/real wife of James (Matthew Florida) a soap opera star. Another interesting character is a squirrely little single sad guy with a key to a computer banned to the couples. He makes a fast change from humor to sympathy, and played by Brad Stine (Christian comedian).

4.0 out of 5 stars Marriage Retreat Review November 12, 2011
Format:DVD
The Review

"Marriage Retreat" is a movie promoted as, "A roller coaster ride of love, emotion, and comedy." This comedic movie about a trio of unhappily married couples who decide to attend a Christian Marriage Retreat located in the mountains far from their suburban home lives resonates with both humor and realism. They are introduced to an unorthodox counseling couple who submit them to a sometimes comical program of marital discovery designed to find out who or what they are missing from their lives. Ultimately, the couples realize they are missing the key ingredient, "Jesus Christ." As they discover this bedrock of marital satisfaction, the couples then retreat into a new reality with God's guidance and acknowledge that they each need to work together in order to "live happily ever-after." Although this movie is presented as comical; at times it takes a very serious look at several problems related to marriage and the need for marriage counseling.

The scenes involving our first couple, Mark and Clair, involve an internal struggle regarding whether or not they should become parents; unbeknownst to Clair, Mark grew up with an abusive father and he adamantly admits he does not want to become a father himself; unbeknownst to Mark, Clair is already pregnant and waiting for the right time to tell Mark. Our second couple, Donna and James, are facing an entirely different dilemma; Donna is already nine-months pregnant and thinking about divorcing James who is a popular soap opera star and a workaholic. Our third couple, Bobby and Melody, are struggling financially after a drop in the housing market and Bobby has developed a gambling addiction which is tearing the relationship apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars This film was a huge help for me personally April 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have watched this 3 times and I imagine I will watch it many more.
It is not the best acted movie or best technically but it is peppered with extremely insightful and meaningful lines and scenes.
The more I've watched, the more I've learned.
Katrina, the ditzy wife of the professional counselor, turned out to be a true model of a godly wife and she is my personal hero.
Thanks to all who made this film. I think it will touch many lives in deep and important ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting movie about working thru life's problems February 19, 2013
By wcp
Format:DVD
I would actually like to give this 3 1/2 stars, but I'll be generous. It told the tale of three married couples and their problems mixing marriage and life's problems. I wish it would have emphasized more how these couples took their relationship problems to the cross. However, I have witnessed couples face problems not a lot different than the ones shown here. This movie emphasizes how important it is to be committed to each other and how to work toward solving problems, rather than to look at divorce as the answer. Anyone going thru a divorce knows how devastating it is for both partners for years to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marriage is Great November 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really mean that, marriage is great, when we do it right. As a Christian knowing God's plan for marriage is easy but sometimes accomplishing that plan and living up to those vows can be difficult. In today's society so many want to just quit at the first sign of trouble. 99.9999% of the time is it is purely based on selfishness. This movie touches on that issue and it does have a Christian basis. While in my life that is vital to some it might not be so. This movie is kind of like a Hallmark Channel Christmas story, Predictable but with a satisfying ending. It has humor, it shows how selfish we can be as humans, but at the end it does show the importance of marriage and understanding for it to succeed we MUST sacrifice what we want and live unselfishly. Nice date night movie.
