Wanderlust doesn't have much new to say but it's fast, vulgar, forgettable fun.

Even if Wanderlust is a bust, Rudd and Aniston will walk away from it with no repercussions as they both perform very well.

While everyone has their tastes and limits there must be a line when a film is so shameless in its lack of dignity and intellect and assumes the audience are just a bunch of rubes.

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

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

Wanderlust takes its aim at some very broad targets so it's no wonder that the film's jokes tend to be blunt and obvious rather than rapier-sharp.

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

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.

A random, tedious and tone-deaf comedy, a feeble recycling of every hippie commune cliche you've ever heard.

...yet another in an increasingly long line of subpar comedies from producer Judd Apatow.

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

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

Even before the maddeningly smug faux-bohemian denouement, we've turned off and tuned out. Bummer.

Too good-natured to dislike it, and in the same breath, too good-natured to have much depth.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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

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

Observer (UK)

The film is a humourless embarrassment, the cliche situations and flat dialogue decorated but not embellished by the envelope-pushing obscenity traditionally associated with its producer Judd Apatow.

Rudd and Aniston shine in Wanderlust.

Director David Wain's experience is TV and this crude film seems more like a sitcom that probably won't be renewed.
