A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
I saw this film at the Waterfront film festival and thought it was hysterical. What a biting satirical snap shot of our society's mindless obsession with 15 minutes of fame, Paris HILTON and getting rich quick. Think of it as FEAR FACTOR meets DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS... on STEROIDS! The story was refreshingly original and did not succumb to the typical dumb formulas of most studio comedies today. I was in a crowd of nearly 700 regular movie goers and it was interesting to see a Midwestern audience not only get the jokes, but belly laugh out loud at a pretty sophisticated farce that did not resort to the obvious Will Farrell and Ben Stiller shtick.
I hope it makes it to the big screen.
