Rating: 3 ½ / 5 stars

I wasn’t expecting a lot from Couples Retreat, as I have not been particularly impressed with Hollywood’s offerings of late. So it was a nice surprise to find a light-hearted and fun movie about the trials and tribulations of 30-something couples.
This hasn’t got the same laugh-out loud appeal as The Hangover, or the memorable moments. However I was able to switch-off and have a chuckle for a couple of hours and with such a good cast, it’s definitely worth a watch.
Standout performance: Kristen Bell – but I think she’s always awesome from way back in her Veronica Mars days!
This movie is now showing a Reading Cinemas in Queenstown.
