Wanderlust Reviews

William Bibbiani

Better for having ambitions, but ironically less perfect for failing to live up to those ideals.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Wanderlust has a freewheeling, improvisational aesthetic that doles out enough solid jokes, even if it does so erratically.

R. L. Shaffer

The parts are often funnier, and more memorable, than the whole, but there's enough here to keep David Wain fans smiling.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Usually avoids SNL skit-shtick and wacky-pothead parody, thanks to affectionate humour, sharp cuts and droll dialogue. Still, the story ultimately sides with the bland, loft-closeted couple and gets lazy with guy-gets-back-girl moments down the stretch.

... you probably won't see a funnier movie all year.

IGN Movies

Consistently funny and outrageous, with a large, appealing cast whose apparent good time making the film is infectious.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Too good-natured to dislike it, and in the same breath, too good-natured to have much depth.

Reeling Reviews

It is not the story but the ensemble cast that saves "Wanderlust" from being a mediocre comedy.

Shadows on the Wall

An unusually sharp script makes this silly comedy thoroughly enjoyable, even when it tips over the top.

Empire Magazine

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.

Fan The Fire

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.

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

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

Peter Bradshaw

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

Little White Lies

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

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

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.

Matthew Turner

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...
