Make no mistake about it. This is a raunchy comedy which focuses almost entirely on sex and drinking and pleasure. And yet it happens to be a bit depressing in spots as a few couples struggle with restoring romance to their marriages. Four couples embark on a journey to a tropical island paradise. One of the couples actually attend some regimented classes to truly work at their marriage. The lead actors are all well known, especially Vince Vaughn and Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau and Kristen Bell. But the script meanders a bit and loses focus. The story is a bit sloppily written.
At any rate, despite the theme of trying to throw new sparks into marriage, and the friendship of the characters, this movie is not family-oriented and, due to sexual content, language, and a lot of drinking scenes, we are unable to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
