Film Disquisition Vol 3: Couples Retreat

Cynthia’s marriage is failing due to being unable to conceive and also because both her and her husband are Type-A to the extreme. In a last ditch effort to save their marriage they concoct a plan to get their friends together and go to a resort called Eden, where world class therapists, food, adventures and fun await. While their friends are hesitant about the therapy portion of the resort, they do all go to the island together. At dinner that night everyone realizes – as a hardbound agenda is passed around – that the bulk of their time will be spent in therapy and other relationship building programs. Only Cynthia and Jason are excited about this. Because they are both so afraid of failure and imperfection – they have come prepared with lists of their issues, what they believe they should work on and what they’d like the end result to be. Their therapist sees right through this and eventually gets them to name their emotions. Cynthia feels judged. From that moment on their relationship is strained throughout the bulk of their skill building therapy sessions as Cynthia begins to realize that she is not happy in her marriage. Towards the end of their stay, they may make a daring trek to Hump Island (the sister resort for people looking for hookups) in the middle of a storm to help their friend get his girlfriend back, however, Cynthia is so over Jason that she splits off with the  other ladies in her group to enjoy the club atmosphere and to cut loose. It is there that Jason finds her and asks for forgiveness at failing her. They make up, make out and go jet skiing!
