Clichéd, stereotyped and truly terrible

In case you hadn't caught the drift of the other reviewers, Couples Retreat is bad. With such a great ensemble cast and its classification as a comedy you would think that the film would have at least one funny scene but amazingly it didn't! I'm all for enjoying films that are so bad they are good but this was just painfully awful and with such wasted potential too! In isolation, Jon Favreau- top writer and actor, Vince Vaughn- yes always the same character but he is undoubtedly a pro, Kristen Bell- quirky, fun and a great comedy actress, Jason Batemen- who doesn't love Arrested Development, even the great British national treasure that is Peter Serafinowicz pops up in a role plus the man that is Jean Reno from Leon fame! It's actually quite incredible that this combination could go badly.

Sure, a couple wishing to reunite their love and passion en rope their unsuspecting friends into the 'holiday of a lifetime' in the picturesque resort of West Eden isn't groundbreaking stuff, but there is a solid foundation from which to develop the film- isn't there? Thinking there would be jet skiing, snorkeling and lazing around the friends are shocked to find out there is a very strict itinerary in place per day. And from hereon it it is cliché after stereotype after character flaw after cringe.

Also where the hell did they find Vince Vaughn's Dad from? I haven't seen such bad acting in a long time. The three stars came from Peter Serafinowicz, John Michael Higgins and Jon Favreau making me raise a smile ONCE.

I think I need to go and lie down because this irritation is causing a non comedic hernia.

A waste of a decent cast.

The main problem with this film is that none of the characters have any redeeming qualities. This makes the rest of the flaws in the movie insurmountable. A funny and talented cast like this should be able to save this film, but because you don't like any of them, it ends up being boring and annoying for the most part.

Hilarious if you are Generation X and married for years

5 stars? Really? I LOVE this movie. If it ever comes on TV my hubby and I totally crack up. We actually like the couples and their personalities and idiosyncrasies. We'd take this stupid vacation and put up with the Pelican Package for that paradise. One of my favorite scenes is when they are considering going home on day one when they realize they have requirements, then they get all that amazing food and drinks - so, so funny! I know the feeling - give me an awesome dinner and I will say yes, too! I about die during the therapy sessions, and nothing...nothing is better than the yoga with Salvadore. Those moments alone are worth the whole movie. We actually like this as a couple - but I can see how certain generations wouldn't like it. You need to watch the UNEDITED version - TV edits out the best moments.
