Couples Retreat is the story of four couples, Dave (Vince Vaughn) and Ronnie (Malin Akerman), Jason (Jason Bateman) and Cynthia (Kristen Bell), Joey (Jon Favreau) and Lucy (Kristen Davis) are close. The group used to include Shane (Faizon Love) and Jennifer (Tasha Smith), but they divorced and she is gone.
Jason and Cynthia announce that their marriage is in trouble, and they beg their friends (and Shane’s young girlfriend) to join them on a couples’ retreat, at the package rate, on a tropical island. The others reluctantly agree, planning to play while Jason and Cynthia work on their marriage with an island psychologist.
To everyone’s surprise, the package is inflexible: each couple must participate in the couples’ exercises. Soon fault lines appear in all four relationships. What started out as a cut-rate vacation turns into an examination of the common problems they face.
