Couples Retreat (Billingsley, 2009): Vince Vaughn and John Favreau ensemble comedy

Synopsis:
Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love star in Universal Pictures' upcoming comedy "Couples Retreat." Based on an original idea of Vaughn's, the comedy follows four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet ski, spa and enjoy some fun in the sun. They soon discover that participation in the resortís couples therapy is not optional. Suddenly, their group-rate vacation comes at a price. What follows is a hilarious look at real world problems faced by all couples. The film also stars Kali Hawk and Jean Reno.

Good to see Peter Billingsly take a more prominent role in these Vaughn/Favreau films.

I'd sit through a movie starring Adam Sandler & Carrot Top if it had Kristen Bell in a bikini in it.

Plus always love the Bateman.

i don't know why people think Kristen Bell is hot. she just doesn't do it for me in anything i've seen her in. all 2 (Sarah Marshall, Heroes).

saw this trailer at "Public Enemies". looks very good. love the players. i hope it won't be watered down and PG-13 though.

/\ She's really funny in interviews, and had a really good guest spot on the season finale of Party Down. Totally hot, and seems like a really cool chick.

Personally she is in my top 3 most beautiful list, but a lot of it is a personality thing, most hollywood actresses are completely devoid of it. Watch her with Craig Ferguson, plus like someone mentioned, I don't know how anyone cannot fall in love with Veronica Mars, plus she gets the geek love, she reads comic books. I think a lot of the "I don't get her appeal" posts that always come up with her is an age thing, she's older than me but she looks really young.

Where did you hear that, she just had an interview in Wizard where they asked her about comics & she says she isn't familiar with the medium only that she recently started picking up Fathom comics. Plus she has the personality of a piece of wood. Kristen Bell had an interview where she was talking about her favorite characters & even naming creators.

Yeah, she's way cool. No actress can beat her for dork-cred. She freakin' wrote her own comic book.

Staying off topic...

While she may not have written her own comic book, I've always found Aisha Tyler to have a lot of dork-cred. I find her a lot more attractive than Rosario too. Yeah, I said it.

She looks like she leapt off the pages of one; a ridiculous parody of a Hollywood starlet without intending to be. There is nothing attractive about that girl to me.

I love me some Kristen Bell. She's cute as a button and has a kick-ass personality. And judging from her Punk'd episode, she's a total fucking sweetheart.
