  • Couples Retreat is a 2009 American comedy film directed by Peter Billingsley and written by Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn and Dana Fox
  • The film was shot mostly on the island Bora Bora.
  • The film was rated PG-13 by the MPAA.
  • The score for Couples Retreat was composed and produced by Oscar award winner A. R. Rahman and recorded in the summer of 2009 with the Hollywood Studio Symphony at the Sony Scoring Stage.
  • The film marks his Hollywood debut.
  • A soundtrack album was released October 6, 2009 by Relativity Music Group
  • The Tamil lyrics for the song Kurukuru Kan was written by A. R. Rahman himself. Lyrics for Sajna were written by Rahman and Blaaze while that for NaNa were by Rahman, Blaaze and Vivianne Chaix.
  • The primary location for filming was at the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, Bora Bora in French Polynesia
  • Other filming locations include Los Angeles, Universal Studios and O'Hare International Airport.
  • Universal Pictures was criticized for removing actors Faizon Love and Kali Hawk from the international posters for the film, showing only six, rather than the eight cast members used for the U.S. promotional materials. The studio said it regretted causing offense and has abandoned plans to use the revised poster in other countries.
  • Universal Pictures partnered with various groups for financial support to help market the film. Sponsors include the Tourism Board of Tahiti, where the film was made; the manufactures of Bud Light and Captain Morgan's Rum; Bloomingdale's department store; and Crunch Gyms. The video game Guitar Hero is also prominently featured in the film.
  • The song 'Na Na' was shortlisted for nomination in the original song category for the 82nd Academy Awards. The number is special for composer Rahman as it also marks his six-year-old son Alim's debut as a singer.
  • The film received mostly negative reviews. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 top reviews from mainstream critics, the film received generally unfavorable reviews earning a score of 23% based on 27 reviews. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an aggregate rating of 11% based on 145 reviews, with a rating score of 3.6 out of 10. The critical consensus is: "Despite a talented cast and some reliably pleasant interplay between Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, Couples Retreat leaves viewers stranded in an arid, mirthless comedy."
  • Despite the negative critical reception, it was a box office success, ranking first for its opening weekend grossing $34,286,740 and becoming Vince Vaughn's highest box office success since 2006's The Break-Up. The film has grossed $109.2 million domestically and $58.8 million in foreign markets for a worldwide total of $168 million
