Movie Review Monday
Every now and then a movie comes along with a cast that seems perfect for downright hilarity. Couples Retreat seemed as such but by the end of the film, I'm not sure it lived up to my expectations. Sure, I laughed... How could you not with Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman and Jon Favreau? I also felt a little preached to. Here are four couples that decide to go on a vacation together to help one couple save their marriage. Along the way we realize at least 3/4 of them are miserable and 1/4 of them might not be as happy and functional as they thought they were. Where are the laughs in that? Basically this is a "moral of the story" kind of movie that reminds us all that we'll be happiest in our relationships if we work hard at them and remain true to ourselves. I don't think I needed comedians to teach me this lesson. I have parents for that.
