I usually don’t put a lot of weight towards the MPAA ratings but after watching this trailer for “Couples Retreat”, I need to know whether or not this film is PG-13 or R. If it’s PG-13, I’m afraid we’re looking at a fairly toothless relationship comedy where the guys like Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman, and Faizon Love are pulling their punches.
If it’s an R-rated comedy, I think we may have something look forward to. Also, they’ve got some funny ladies in the cast and I hope we get to see more of their comedic talents than we do here. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. “Couples Retreat” hits theatres on October 9th.
Here’s the synopsis:
Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love star in Universal Pictures’ upcoming comedy Couples Retreat. Based on an original idea of Vaughn’s, the comedy follows four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet ski, spa and enjoy some fun in the sun. They soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. Suddenly, their group-rate vacation comes at a price. What follows is a hilarious look at real world problems faced by all couples. The film also stars Kali Hawk and Jean Reno.
