Bora Bora was a beautiful location to film at and added that much needed taste of paradise to a rather bitter sweet subject of a troubled marriage.

The secret to a happy marriage involves falling in love over and over again with the same person. 'Couples Retreat' offers an amusing illustration of that old saying.

The twosome that sparks most agreeably is Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. ... The humor isn't always highbrow, but it works.

Couples Retreat is a comedy/drama mix, but it's mostly the comedy parts that work.

Beneath the ham acting and the relentless banter is a serious movie about relationships. We're being sold laughs, but a few sober thoughts are delivered.

If an easy watch is what you're after this will do the trick, simply keep expectations at a modest level and it won't be a waste of time.

It's been 13 years since Swingers. Couples Retreat is a very different film from writers leading very different lives. It's fast paced. Its a bunch of skits book-ended with story. And it's a lot of fun.

Couples Retreat is ridiculous and whorish, but the minds behind it are too sharp to simply leave it at that.

Couples Retreat is a pleasant, undemanding, middle-of-the-road comedy, and really, were you expecting anything else?

Thanks to Vaughn, Favreau, and the stray sharp lines that pop out of everyone else, the film at least offers the lively sound of egos that still know how to swing.

Although co-written by Vince Vaughn & Jon Favreau, their magic of past is scantly seen.

Couples Retreat is a lazy, unimaginative comedy that, with the talent on show, should have been a whole lot more than another boring rom-com to throw on the pile.
