Couples Retreat is a romantic comedy movie made last year starring Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. Included in the cast too were Dana Fox, Jason Bateman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, Jean Reno, Faison Love, Kali Hawk and Malin Akerman, and is directed by Peter Billingsley. Majority of the flick was shot on the island of Bora Bora, a part of the Leeward group of islands in French Polynesia. The movie was released in October of last year in the United States and subsequently around the world.

The plot revolves around four couples who invested time in a couples therapy situated in an island resort called “Eden”. The pairs were Dave (Vince Vaughn) and Ronnie (Malin Akerman), Joey (Jon Favreau) and Lucy (Kristin Davis), Jason (Jason Bateman) and Cynthia (Kristen Bell) and Shane (Faison Love) and Trudy (Kali Hawk).

Dave and Ronnie are both stressed out as they raise their children and try to keep with each other, Joey and Lucy are having problems with each other and their marriage is on the rocks, Jason and Cynthia are having hard time conceiving a baby, and Shane, a divorcee has a very young girlfriend, well with not much of a problem.

The four couples arrive at the resort knowing that the therapy session is by choice, but they found out that they must attend and finish each session without complains and that each session is prerequisite to others. This movie is wacky and is enjoyable to watch!
