Watch: Couples Retreat

More than one person I know is having relationship dramz right now. The details I surely won’t get into, but I will say this: I hope they can kiss and make-up in time for Valentine’s Day. And since I know couples therapy can be kind of intimidating, not to mention steep, I’m recommending a little Couples Retreat, which comes out today on DVD.

The hilarious comedy stars Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau (who also penned the script), Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman, Faizon Love, and Kali Hawk as four couples who take advantage of a group rate at a world-class Bora Bora resort specializing in couples counseling. Each twosome has their own set of problems and get way more than they bargained for while working through their issues—including a naughty, speedo-clad yoga instructor played by Carlos Ponce.

I took my dad to see this in the theaters, and we shared some good laughs. I highly recommend checking out the “Behind The Yoga” feature, which takes you behind the scenes of the preparation, rehearsals and antics of the film’s side-splitting yoga scene with Ponce. And ladies, let me just say, homeboy got positively ripped for this role!
