Couples Retreat

Yeah, the only reason I watched Couples Retreat (2009) was because Jason Bateman was in it. I love Jason Bateman. Oh, and Malin Akerman was in it too. She's pretty cool. And lets not forget Vince Vaughn, I mean, he's pretty funny. When these three actors are joined by Kristen Bell, Kristin Davis, Jon Favreau, even Kiwi Temuera Morrison, it's a sure-fire hit right? Right...
Couples Retreat has a pretty self explanatory title, four struggling couples decide to go to a resort to build their relationships back up again. All seems well, for starters the couples are holidaying in Bora Bora, which pretty much looks like the most beautiful place in the world. However, the purpose of the trip-to rebuild their relationships-seems to be a lost cause when they engage in several weird activities. Yoga with a muscly instructor being one of them. But can a beautiful island filled with bliss help them make up?
So it does have it's flaws, and unfortunately the good parts are few and far between. There are some funny bits, dramatic bits and complete gross-out bits. But I would have expected a little tiny bit more from Vince Vaughn. And the super cool cast.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
