I found Couples Retreat to be very funny. I laughed a lot throughout. It's interesting that many who liked the Hangover did NOT like Couples Retreat. I personally found the Hangover to be one of the most disappointing movies of the year. Couples Retreat on the other hand was very engaging, somewhat plausible and as I said, very funny.
Anyways, I thought it was a decent movie. I don't know if people were expecting a lot more out of this movie? I wasn't expecting....so maybe that's why I'm giving it higher ratings.
Plus I automatically favor any movie that takes place on a tropic island, etc....I'm just tired of seeing cities or sky scrapers for the background on 90% of movies out there today!
This comedy wasn't anything ground-breaking, but between all the sexual tension moments, and the yoga instructor and several characters having funny accents....I'd call it a fairly decent comedy.
