or anything except you and me, okay?
Synopsis: Every week, at 7PM on Tuesday evening, four New York City couples, each in various stages of their relationships, get together for counseling. Having no outside interactions with one another, this is the only place where they get to compare one another and their problems, analyzing whose relationship needs the most work. The newest couple in the group is the firecracker, Lyla (Kunis), an illustrator who specializes in children’s books, and her controlling boyfriend, Jacob (Fassbender), who seems to switch jobs every other week. Then there’s Sofia (Cotillard), a burlesque dancer who constantly doubts if her architect fiance, Jackson (Gosling), is being faithful. Of course, one can’t forget the newlyweds - stay at home wife Evelyn (Kruger) and her engineer husband Connor (McAvoy). And last, but most certainly not least, is Serena (Gellar) - a pill-popping psychologist - and her soon to be alcoholic ex-husband, Noah (Canet). One Tuesday evening, following the announcement of Serena & Noah’s filing for divorce, Lyla declares an idea: for one week, all of them exchange spouses with another couple. ‘CHECK, PLEASE' follows the four couples for one week as they search for the answer to one question: if you trade your spouse, do you trade your problems?
