Yes, it’s another silly romantic comedy, but with an amazing cast that will most likely make the film worthwhile no matter what. The film stars Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love and was directed by Peter Billingsley, who is more commonly known as an actor than a Director. He appeared in Iron Man, The Break-Up, Four Christmases, and 30 other films as an actor, and has only ever directed one other film, The Sacred Fire in 1994. That being said, Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, and Dana Fox wrote the film and it appears as if they have a lot of trust in him.

Synopsis: Couples Retreat is based on an original idea of Vaughn’s, the comedy follows four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet ski, spa and enjoy some fun in the sun. They soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. Suddenly, their group-rate vacation comes at a price. What follows is a hilarious look at real world problems faced by all couples.
