The new film Couples Retreat is the kind of middle-of-the-road comedy that’ll play real well when it hits cable a year from now.
Starring Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, and Kristin Davis (among others), the film is about four couples who go to an exotic couples therapy resort. Wouldn’t you know it, each pair learns to love each other again.
Insert Vaughn spazzing out, plenty of eye candy (for the men and the ladies), some laughs, some pretty scenery, and you’ve got this film.
While neither bad nor classic, Couples Therapy aims for the mainstream and lands there pretty smoothly.
I’m giving it a not-asstastic B–.
