A Tyler Perry movie for white folks.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 6, 2010
Although co-written by Vince Vaughn & Jon Favreau, their magic of past is scantly seen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

...an utterly incompetent comedic affair...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 10, 2010
A bit of a guilty pleasure. But, most of the humor falls flat. Interesting that it's a Vince Vaughn vehicle that doesn't give Vaughn enough to do. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Instead of being a sharp, witty comedy about married couples experiencing vacation therapy together, it's more of a pinheads-in-paradise routine with only a few funny lines.

It's some kind of trick when a film can make Jason Bateman look unsubtle.

Somewhere in all of this, there is the potential for a pretty good comedy, but this movie isn't it.

The vapid couples become sniping or sarcastic chunks of white blandness even sharks would spit back up. A kind of bad video-game romance-comedy: 2D characters, flat dialogue, an exotic backdrop, and lame new levels of relationship challenges.

Couples is so formulaic, so fake and relentlessly bland, it's hard to care if any of these pairings get a divorce, drown or are eaten by sharks. It has neither the ring of truth nor the fun of fantasy.

Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, wrote the witless script, so have only themselves to blame.
October 20, 2009
The debutant director is done no favours by a screenplay from Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau which gives him little to play with and them few chances to shine as actors.

A patchwork collection of derivative gags and relationship drama that seems leftover from old 'thirtysomething' episodes.

Retreat as quickly as possible.

October 17, 2009
For all its visual splendor, to say nothing of its likable cast, the movie never feels as liberating as its locale.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Why couldn't Couples Retreat have been lighthearted and zany throughout, instead of trying to push across a message about picket-fence monogamy?
October 16, 2009
Couples Retreat comes across as a movie that was made... because it was felt that if the right buttons were pushed, this might make money.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

That the wonderful French actor Jean Reno plays the therapist is a sign that his agent is not doing a good enough job finding him film roles in American movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 16, 2009
This couples-in-conflict comedy starts strongly but then slips into the turquoise water of paradise lost.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
