Tommy Lee Jones,
Kay and Arnold are a middle-aged couple whose marriage has declined until they are now sleeping in separate rooms and barely interact in any meaningful loving way. Finally, Kay has had enough and finds a book by Dr. Feld which inspires her to sign them up for the Doctor's intense week long marriage counseling session. Although Arnold sees nothing wrong with their 30 year long marriage, he reluctantly agrees to go on the expensive excursion. What follows is an insightful experience as Dr. Feld manages to help the couple understand how they have emotionally drifted apart and what they can do to reignite their passion. Even with the Doctor's advice, Kay and Arnold find that renewing their marriage's fire is a daunting challenge for them both. Written by

Based on the trailers, I was expecting at least some comedy and romance, along the lines of Somethings Gotta Give. An older couple falling in love. I understood the story was an older married couple re-igniting their love. What I got was 100 minutes of sadness and then the agony of Steve Carrell trying to drag out the details of their sex life, favorite positions, favorite sexual acts. I mean at one point his advice to them is for her to perform oral sex on him in the movie theater. I would have turned it off except we were watching it with friends at their house and I think no one wanted to be the first to say they hated it, since I was the one who picked it out at the video store. My video renting privileges have been revoked according to my husband for picking this movie. LOL! The ONLY saving grace was that it did have a happy ending, but you don't know that until just before the credits roll. Seriously, the only light hearted moments are shown in the trailer which is seriously misleading about this movie.
So, in conclusion, don't waste your time or money. It's not a feel good kind of movie that leaves you happy and optimistic of life and love and especially about marriage.
