The cast is unbeatable – Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau together again, Jason Bateman, Faizon Love, Kristen Bell, Malin Ackerman, Kristin Davis – and the cameos seem sublime – Ken Jeong! Jean Reno! Peter Serafinowicz! – and it’s directed by none other than Ralphie from A Christmas Story, Peter Billingsly (he’s not the A Christmas Story alum who went into porn. That would be the kid who got his tongue stuck to the pole. Try not to think of the meta meaning of that). But I was worried about Couples Retreat. It smacked of old people comedy, the kind of stuff that’s rarely funny.
Oops, guess I was wrong. Or at least the trailer makes me think I was wrong, since the trailer is pretty hilarious. And it’s a green band – I sense a killer red band is in our future.
