in a better place, after Couples Retreat

Just a few hours ago, man was I in a mood? I lean toward the bi-polar at times.  I decided what I needed was a light hearted movie to pick up my mood.  I just finished watching Couples Retreat.  The first half of the movie was kind of boring, I mean it was cute, but just not what I was expecting.  The second half it came in to it's own.  I laughed out loud several times.  If you contemplate turning it off don't it's building to a good climax. Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn wrote the movie.  If you like their comedy you will like this movie.  They both seem to always play the same character just with a different situation.  What is shocking is Vince is actually in the one couple that isn't crazy; and Jason Bateman spends the better part of the movie being a total douche.  It is everything a good Rom Com is, funny, sad, touching, and happily ever after.  It is full of beautiful scenery, hilarious characters, and outrageous situations.  If you need an inkling on how good it was, read my prior post and compare to this one.  Nuff said.
