Wanderlust

Critics Consensus

It isn't always as funny as it should be, but Wanderlust benefits from an extremely talented cast and some of David Wain's most confident, assured work behind the camera.

Movie Info

George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George's awful brother in Atlanta. On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can't buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them. Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves? -- (C) Universal

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

    March 2, 2012 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • There's a great deal of cheerfully excessive bad taste in this broad comedy, produced by Judd Apatow.

    March 1, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Surprising, sweet and charming, David Wain proves himself a comic director par excellence.

    March 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • It's hard to remember a comedy so populated with good character bits.

    February 29, 2012
  • You know you're in trouble when not even the improvised scenes and fluffed out-takes are funny.

    Highly predictable, crass comedy from the mind of Judd Apatow. Three stars, but reluctantly, as about the only character I found I could like was Linda, played by Jennifer Aniston. Very few moments that I would actually describe as funny. I liked it, but only a little bit.

    Another movie with a wasted concept filled with predictable and dull jokes and Rudd and Aniston seemingly phoning it all in. The only highlight is Theroux as the community leader, clearly exemplifying the fact he should have consulted on the screenplay to give this some actual humour.

    "Wanderlust" is exactly what the title suggests -- it wanders with its narrative with very little punchlines or humor to make it memorable. Paul Rudd is always good and always entertaining to watch, but with the lackluster script and boring plotline, "Wanderlust" is a pass altogether.
