On the acting part, Vince Vaughan is the only one who stands out with a good performance. Jon Favreau tries really hard, but falls flat. Jason Bateman is okay, so is the fat guy. Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell & Kristin Davis have nothing to do. A supremely talented actor like Jean Reno is terribly wasted. What a waste of great talent!!
The only stand-out was Peter Serafinowicz as Sctanley (pronounced Stanley) as he played the Mr. Roarke role (from Fantasy Island TV show) with that deep commanding voice. Good job.
No good one-liners, no physical comedy to relate. Vince Vaughn had a hand in writing and producing this so you know where to look if you don't have a good time. Vince Vaughn & Dana Fox must have been on drugs or high-to write such work. The film doesn't work!
Peter Billingsley's 'Couples Retreat' is a poorly written & executed film.
Based on 4 couples, who go-for a therapy holiday & finally bond.
Nothing else to write about this misadventure... Thumbs Down!
