This is a wonderful film for Grown Ups! i.e. mature people who can appreciate the real challenges that a 31 year old marriage that has gone stale presents.An Intelligent script with excellent dialogue delivered flawlessly by Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones (the married couple, "Kay" and "Arnold"), and Steve Carell as the "Couples Retreat" therapist, "David Frankel." Surprisingly, Carell plays it straight -- not as the the comedian that we kept expecting. Everyone else in the cast was incidental, as these three marvelous actors -- on screen throughout -- were each and all pitch perfect. Funny and true to life, well done!
