As it’s released with prints of Public Enemies, the first trailer for the new Universal comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, and Jon Favreau has hit the web. The film is about four couples that are having trouble staying afloat, so they all decide to take a vacation to a wacky tropical island filled with wackier people to help make their relationships work. Laughing yet?
The trailer doesn’t make the film look very good, which isn’t surprising since its the same team that brought us 2006’s The Break Up and 2008’s Four Christmases. The film is directed by Peter Billinglsy, long-time friend of Favreau’s, but we know him more as Ralphie from 1983’s A Christmas Story. Overall, the film kind of looks like a less fun, over 30 version of Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Couples Retreat also stars Kristen Bell, Malin Ackerman, Faizon Love, and Kristen Davis and will hit theaters October 9 of this year. Check out the trailer after the jump.
