Wanderlust is flawed, too, but for its exploration of financial ruin and alternative lifestyles, it shows once again that Aniston, at the very least, knows which way the wind is blowing.

Hilarious.

David Wain's film sports an intriguing premise, but the end result never really commits to any particular viewpoint.

Take away the gratuitous frontal nudity, clean up the language and Wanderlust could be one of those lame 1960s comedies that considered itself oh, so daring for mentioning LSD or birth control pills.

Trust me, this movie doesn't deliver on any level, high or low.

Take an old idea, add a top notch comedy cast and some deliriously awkward moments, pop a spliff in its mouth and you're got this wayward but occasionally very funny alt.comedy.

This film isn't going to stick in your mind because of a stirring and original narrative or heart-wrenching lead performance; it's going to stick there because it is just good fun, plain and simple.

It feels like the pilot for a dated nineties sitcom, just not one I'd like to watch. Where are Aniston's friends when she needs them?

There's a germ of an idea for a comedy in Wanderlust, but instead of letting it grow, the people involved have instead allowed it to fester.

This has its moments, but runs out of steam all too quickly.

Neither perceptive nor funny, it's just a mass of unbelievable characters in a demeaning search for a feelgood finale.

While there's little rom, with no discernible chemistry between Rudd and Aniston, Wanderlust scores better when it comes to com.

There's a great deal of cheerfully excessive bad taste in this broad comedy, produced by Judd Apatow.

Surprising, sweet and charming, David Wain proves himself a comic director par excellence.

Another career misstep by Aniston as this crude comedy misses the mark by just not being funny

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston click so well, and credibly, as a screen couple in Wanderlust, you may wonder why they couldn't be a go-to pairing for just about any quirky romcom.

David Wain is one of cinema's greatest goofballs.

After four years, [Wain has] neither improved as a director nor found a script that has anything but sawdust for brains.

Frequently amusing, rather than laugh-out-loud funny, this is a watchable comedy that scrapes a pass thanks to likeable comic performances and a handful of decent gags...

It's an uneven affair but fans of the style will find it comedy nirvanha.
