- Couples Retreat review by CP Customer
After watching Couples Retreat I can only imagine that everyone involved fancied a few weeks on a luxury island with the added benefit of a nice fat pay cheque. Simply because the movie itself is atrocious. Pitched as a film for couples this comedy is devoid of laughs, although I did find myself cringing at the CGI when it was used. Few surprises are revealed as innuendo, flesh and guitar hero are used to drive the poorly devised storyline to its predictable conclusion.
