This film is a great, fun-loving film that will really get you in the holiday mood! It is based on the idea of struggling couples who go to this island in search of relighting their fire, each discovering they have more problems than they thought.
It was filmed at the St. Regis resort in Bora Bora and the setting is truly breathtaking!!
Bearing this in mind, the scenery still does not detract from the short, funny quips that the film has to offer - with noticeably good performances from ALL the cast. (Some of whom are only familiar faces in previous commedies.) Even Jean Reno's character - Monsuire Marcel - is fantastically funny yet still believable as a therapist.
The film is light-hearted and inoffensive with some awkward, yet funny scenes involving a good-looking yoga instructor and in contrast, Vince Vaughn is covered in chum, then overly exaggerates his experience with some small reef sharks! (Amusing the others at dinner.) Both these scenes and some others (such as the Guitar Hero playoff) in the film make it an enjoyable watch and it is definately worth the price.
However the film does lack an in-depth story and has a somewhat predicatable ending - but what more do you want from this genre anyway??
For those who enjoy a light-hearted giggle and some hilarious episodes, with a bit of originality, this film is worth the watch. If you are looking for some intense acting and a hard-talking storyline, then this is not your kind of film.
