Fortifying for endurance – “Couples Retreat” – What the Wine? #22
Imagine this: you are at your child’s birthday party in your own home. Suddenly you are cornered by your friends, who have been trying to get you to watch their slideshow/presentation for weeks. You have bee avoiding it and making excuses, because you believe it is about testicular cancer prevention and you don’t really want to look at related pictures. But now you have nowhere to run as they had set up the presentation upstairs. You are outraged a bit and really need a glass of wine to take with you. The actresses in the 2009 comedy titled “Couples Retreat“, Malin Akerman and Kristin Davis, captured the perturbed emotion quite well.
A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
