Triple Dog takes place in a small suburban town, where six high school girls play a game of dare that careens out of control, altering their lives forever… The popular girl, Eve, is having her 16th birthday slumber party, when her best friend, the attention-hungry Chapin, arrives late and the party starts spinning out of control. Content to entertain themselves with facials and pedicures, tomboy Chapin suggests they play a game of dare called, “Triple Dog”. The rules are simple: everyone gets a dare and gives a dare. Failure to perform a dare results in one’s head being shaved. Whoever performs the best “Triple Dog Dare” by the end of the night wins a cash prize and the ultimate respect from their peers.

Couples Retreat follows four couples who go to a tropical island resort. While one couple is there to work on their marriage, the others are there to play, but they all soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. The idea for the film was originally devised by Vince Vaughn before being handed off to Jon Favreau to script.
Billingsley has collaborated with Vaughn on Four Christmases and The Break-Up, and with Favreau on Iron Man, Elf and Dinner for Five. Billingsley also worked with both Favreau and Vaughn on their 2001 film Made.
Couples Retreat will be in theaters on October 9th.
