Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Why couldn't Couples Retreat have been lighthearted and zany throughout, instead of trying to push across a message about picket-fence monogamy?"
‑ Dan Zak, Washington Post
"This is one of those films, like last week's Whip It and so many others of late, that looks like it was a lot fun to make. It's just not all that much fun to watch."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A Tyler Perry movie for white folks."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"...an utterly incompetent comedic affair..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Instead of being a sharp, witty comedy about married couples experiencing vacation therapy together, it's more of a pinheads-in-paradise routine with only a few funny lines."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"Expectations of farce are stymied by long stretches of mid-life navel gazing."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"There are also scenes, the disjointed kind that wander off aimlessly in the vague hope of finding a movie, not to mention a laugh."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Although co-written by Vince Vaughn & Jon Favreau, their magic of past is scantly seen."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"A bit of a guilty pleasure. But, most of the humor falls flat. Interesting that it's a Vince Vaughn vehicle that doesn't give Vaughn enough to do. Paul Chambers, CNN."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"It's some kind of trick when a film can make Jason Bateman look unsubtle."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Nitrate Online
"It's too easy to say that Peter Billingsley shot his eye out with this inept comic trifle, but...well, he shot his eye out."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Couples Retreat is a comedy of exhaustion. But it is the comedy itself, in both concept and execution, that seems tired."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Couples Retreat is a lazy, unimaginative comedy that, with the talent on show, should have been a whole lot more than another boring rom-com to throw on the pile."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Somewhere in all of this, there is the potential for a pretty good comedy, but this movie isn't it."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
