Paul Rudd is awesome. Some people have this natural quality that just draws you to them; something that makes it impossible to hate them. Whatever that quality is - charisma/charm/etc. - Rudd has it in spades.

That Judd Apatow was one of the producers of this film only goes to prove that even the king of comedy can have an off day.

Wanderlust doesn't have much new to say but it's fast, vulgar, forgettable fun.
September 17, 2012
Even if Wanderlust is a bust, Rudd and Aniston will walk away from it with no repercussions as they both perform very well.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

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.

probably looked much better on paper

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.
March 23, 2012
A random, tedious and tone-deaf comedy, a feeble recycling of every hippie commune cliche you've ever heard.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

...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.

March 17, 2012
There is no narrative cohesion to the film, no pull towards any of the characters, no emotional connection that made anything going onscreen resonate beyond a superficial level.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 9, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
March 8, 2012
An unusually sharp script makes this silly comedy thoroughly enjoyable, even when it tips over the top.
