Couples Retreat

Release date: 25 October 2009 (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

Director Peter Billingsley was brought in to direct the dumb screenplay by - among others - Vince Vaughn. Premise has 3 couples in varying degrees of challenge heading to Fuji (St Regis Bora Bora Resort) - okay, that's good - to partake in a couples retreat. Despite the B-star power brought into this shipwreck of a movie - with Jason Bateman at the helm - Couples Retreat is both so far fetched and so, well, bad it makes one long for abandonment on a island without access to any films again. If crudeness is your cup of tea, saddle up to the trough, you'll love it.

Only watchable because of the gorgeous scenery in Bora Bora gives this mistake masquerading as a movie, my rating of 3 out of 10.
