Essay #12

My 12th essay will be about a Comedy movie! Couples Retreat!

Four Midwestern couples 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.


Vince Vaughn
Jason Bateman
Faizon Love
Jon Favreau
Malin Akerman
Kristen Bell
Kristin Davis

Hmm, let me start by commenting of the location of ' Eden ', it is so beautiful! just like the screensaver on my Mac computer, it was shot in the island of Bora-Bora! Under a one hour flight from the island of Tahiti.

Anyways, this movie is about couples and their problems. This movie really made me realize. that no matter how much in love or how happy you are when your in a relationship. somewhere along the line, there will be rough patches and hard times couples will go through, and when that happens. and if the couple does not work at it to try and resolve the issue. it will lead to ignoring each other, not talking to each other, fighting a lot and soon. the couple can't even stand the sight of each other.
Even though i'm only 17, still young and much more to experience. i can't but help but to agree, when i was with my girlfriend. Communication is one of the most important thing in a relationship. After watching the movie. I felt a little bit uneasy, thinking and comparing myself with my future-wife. i wonder, what if i turn out like that? or when im older, i'll be like one of those couples you see in restaurants, just sitting there staring and stray cats and dogs while they wait for their food to arrive. and not saying one word to each other, other than ' let's go home, or call for the bill ' it scares me a little. Well, at least now i know ' what will happen, or what CAN happen if you don't work at a relationship'

movie 7.5/10
