Picture is so nice on this blu-ray. It was shot on location at Bora Bora. Movie is funny, not the greatest, but still decent story line. Only bad thing is the disc set itself. The box says itunes download, but the code inside expired. Emailed their customer support, and they gave me an Ultraviolet code only. I preferred itunes.Set has some cool extras though. Knocked one star off for false advertising on the outer packaging.
Great, fun film if you enjoy these sorts of comedies with these cast members. Great location shoot in that you get to see Bora Bora in all its glory. Not a "necessary" purchase by any means. But if you find it on sale, a good buy if you're in the mood. I do think it's a little misleading that it says it includes a digital copy, but the copy cannot be redeemed anymore. So you need to know that is NOT part of the purchase and probably one reason it's on sale.
Vince Vaughn is one of my favorite actors, so I knew we had to see this film. It did not disappoint! Couples Retreat is a funny film from start to finish -- light-hearted and with broad appeal, although I probably wouldn't watch it with children. It is a great film for a date night, and the casting is terrific. I would recommend it to any Vince Vaughn fan!
