Watch On
  1. In Couples Retreat, it's Favreau, not Vaughn, who is wound up, and this vacation comedy goes nowhere.
  2. A good idea for a sophisticated comedy lurks within the latest Jon Favreau-Vince Vaughn collaboration, Couples Retreat, but the filmmakers lack the courage of their convictions. So the payoff is mixed at best.
  3. 50
    Among the better things in the movie, I count Vaughn's well-timed and smart dialogue.
  4. The results are boring boring.
  5. The story and the humor get progressively skimpier than an Ipanema bikini.
  6. You'll have a few laughs, for sure. Just don't expect to enjoy yourself as much as everybody on screen.

    Those involved got to spend weeks at a Bora Bora luxury resort; all we get is this not lousy but unmemorable tropical-vacation comedy.

    I give this a 3 because the first 15 minutes were promising and then it just turns into hours of horrible dialogue. I mean really boring, I give this a 3 because the first 15 minutes were promising and then it just turns into hours of horrible dialogue. I mean really boring, totally not funny endless blabbering about absolutely nothing. I actually just shut it off with probably about 15 minutes to go, I just didn't care how it ended. Full Review »
