Universal premiered the first theatrical trailer for the ensemble comedy “Couples Retreat” today over at Apple. Starring Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love, the film is set to hit theaters on October 9th.

Based on an original idea from Vaughn, the movie follows four couples who travel to a tropical resort in order to work with a therapist on their respective marriages. Of course, zaniness ensues. The trailer definitely emits a chuckle or two and even spoils a promising cameo. I’m personally looking forward to the film wich sees Favreau penning the screenplay and taking on a prominent role — all the better to bounce jokes of the always stalwart Vaughn and Batemen. At that, the three female leads (Akerman, Davis, and Bell) have all shown great wit and even greater looks. Should be a good time. Check the trailer below.

    Hilarious stuff. This better be as awesome as it looks.

  2. My anticipation definitely increased tenfold when I saw this. And am I the only who wishes Hank Azaria played the yoga instructor at the end?

    I was already excited about this one, but I actually thought the trailer was kind of lame. It was all right, but no big laughs for me. I’m kind of hoping they’re saving the best for the film. But I don’t see how this trailer would excite the audience at large, the ones with no particular interest in the players involved.

    I can see it exciting a more mature audience that normally don’t get comedies for their demographic. I mean, for once, it seems Frat Pack guys are putting out a comedy about people who are actually acting their age (sort of… At least it’s about people doing something that 40-somethings do… Although all the women are of course a LOT younger).
