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.
Dave is a married man with two kids and a loving wife , and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain when lightning strikes and they switch bodies.
Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
Pete and Debbie are both about to turn 40, their kids hate each other, both of their businesses are failing, they're on the verge of losing their house, and their relationship is threatening to fall apart.
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
Dave and Ronnie, Jason and Cynthia, and Joey and Lucy are close. The group used to include Shane and Jennifer, but they divorced and she's gone. Jason and Cynthia announce that their marriage is in trouble, and they beg their friends (and Shane's young girlfriend) to join them on a couples' retreat, at the package rate, on a tropical island. The others reluctantly agree, planning to play while Jason and Cynthia work on their marriage with an island psychologist. To everyone's surprise, the package is inflexible: each couple must participate in the couples' exercises. Soon fault lines appear in all four relationships. What's in store for each couple?

The title pretty much says it all. This movie is a very lackluster comedy, if you could even call it a comedy. It did have a couple of somewhat funny moments, but the entire time I was sitting there waiting for the movie to get good, only to be disappointed. There aren't even any boob shots in the movie which would have helped it out a bit, but I guess Ralphie the director didn't want anything dirty to spoil the film. All you get is a half-butt shot of a large black man which really doesn't help the lack of comedy much.
As I said in the summary, the scenes where the couples are having sessions with the therapist were about as fun as actually being in couple's therapy. They could have been either written funnier or left out completely. And the yoga scene, which was apparently intended to be hilarious, just seemed to fall flat.
All in all I'd recommend not watching this movie. It's not even really good enough for passive entertainment and will soon end up in the bargain bin.
