‘Couples Retreat’ Photos

Some nice focus on the couples in some recently released promotional photos from October’s highly anticipated comedy¬†Couples Retreat starring Vince Vaughn and friends.

I think the casting of seemingly uptight Jason Bateman and Kristen Bell are a couple made for each other, and Vaughn’s sidekick Malin Akerman has shown she can go “out there” in numerous film roles. Jon Favreau continues his hot acting year with another scene-stealing role and it’s nice to see Kristin Davis playing against type as a kind of slutty wife. I did like Faizon Love in Elf and it’s nice to see him given a chance to shine in a high-profile project.

Couples Retreat is directed by Peter Billingsley (The Break-Up) from a script by Vaughn, Favreau, and Dana Fox. Also appearing are Jean Reno, John Michael Higgins, and Ken Jeong (who is legally required to appear in all comedy movies these days).
