Couples Retreat

Critics Consensus

Despite a talented cast and some reliably pleasant interplay between Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, Couples Retreat leaves viewers stranded in an arid, mirthless comedy.

Audience Reviews for Couples Retreat

  • Nov 13, 2018
    Consider the cast and Vaughn at the height of his popularity, this is a major letdown that fails to extract anything from the concept. The cast must have had a great time, sadly it does not translate to the screen. Bateman is boring as the uptight friend and Favreau can only do so much. There was a better story to tell here and instead of going for the typical high end production values, they could have made a film with a worthy script. Vaughn is somewhat subdued here, the main character is the least interesting, go figure. 13/11/2018.

    A typical Vince Vaughn film, A big let down, Very unfunny most of the way through, Cute in places, But the only funny bit was the yoga class, It felt like a overlong documentary on how to deal with marriage.

    Cheap, unfunny jokes abound in this purported comedy about trying to maintain (cough) healthy (cough, cough) normal relationships. The plot is a nightmare: stick the characters in an environment that they can't leave, then let the film go nowhere for about 90 minutes before tacking on a "but we'll all be O.K. now" ending. Vapid, pointless movie: no romance, and no comedy (though this isn't shocking in Romantic Comedies anymore), and worse, no stakes, nothing to invest in and no characters to get behind. Mailed in, from beginning to end. Don't watch this.
