Story: 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. (Universal Pictures)
Bottom Line: Shallow characters, unoriginal concept and unintelligent dialogue are all muddled together in this lazily made ‘comedy’. COUPLES RETREAT…indeed - but I’d actually open the category and suggest that everyone retreat!
