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!"
It's almost like they started out making his movie without any idea of what it was going to be about.
It would be ok if you don't have anything else, and it was free.
The movie is also fun to watch because of the scenery. Beautiful waters in HD makes you want to go to one of these types of places.
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).Read more ›
