||A couple whose marriage is in trouble convince their friends to join them on a tropical island’s “Couples Retreat” where they undergo various types of therapy, and some are attracted by the singles resort next door. It turns out that they all have problems which may or may not be resolved by the holiday.
||The ladies spend a lot of time on their underwear, and the men are mostly obnoxious. There is spiritual guidance and therapy sessions and once at the singles resort a load of girls in bikinis, but no actual nudity. However the “content advisory” on imdb is the longest I have ever seen.
||This is not a very funny film, despite the efforts of everybody involved. The best I can say is that for once the guys are not totally unpleasant and the therapy sessions are quite realistic. For some reason I find Ken Jeong, who plays one of the therapists really amusing. The critics had fun with the title, but it made money.
