Really? Okay.

'Couples Retreat' finds love at box office:
Audiences fell hard this weekend for the winning combo of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, with Universal's "Couples Retreat" earning a surprisingly buoyant $35.3 million at 3,000 playdates.

It's not that it looks any worse than any of the other sexist, homophobic, and otherwise bigoted swill that gets churned out on a regular basis; it's that I can't understand why anyone wants to go see it, because I must have seen the trailer like 97 times the last week, and I still have no idea what the hell the movie's about.

Something about sharks and men's junk? It's like, I'm hearing English words and seeing pictures of familiar things, but none of it is making any sense to me.
