We told you about this movie not to long ago called 'Couples Retreat' which is a film that was written by Jon Favreau. The movie is about four couples that go to an island resort on Bora Bora; one is there to work on their rocky relationship, there others are there to play, but they all soon discover participation in the resort's couples therapy program is not optional. We all know what happens after that, some damn good comedy. USA Today has our first look at the complete cast. At this time I would like to remind all of you to watch 'A Christmas Story' this week, Which stars 'Couples Retreat' director Peter Billingsley as Ralphie.
And the couples are: Kristen Bell and Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau and Kristin Davis, Vince Vaughn and Malin Akerman, and Faizon Love and Kali Hawk. Also part of the cast but not seen in the photo: Jean Reno as Monsieur Marcelle, the resort's mastermind, and John Michael Higgins as a therapist.
Vince Vaughn goes on to tell us a little more:
"I had the concept a while ago, and Favreau did the first draft of the screenplay with specific actors in mind," Vaughn explained to USA Today. As for what is wrong with who, Vaughn gives us a more official rundown of the relationships: Bateman, who is hoping to patch up his union with Bell, invites the three other couples along on their trip. Bateman and Bell are "Type A's struggling to have kids." Faizon and his wife have just separated, and he is dating a young girl from Foot Locker. Vaughn and Akerman are swamped with kids and work. And Favreau and Kristin Davis are secretly not completely faithful to each other. To sum it all up, it's as Vaughn says to Bateman: "Thank you for bringing me to Problem Island."
I couldn't be more excited for this film. It has a great cast that has geek written all over it, and some great talent putting it together. I couldn't be more excited for this film. I bet we are going to get some great quotable lines that we will end up using in our every day lives.
