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.

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

Wanderlust is the perfect title for the new Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston comedy because it is a potentially good movie that just gets lost along the way.

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

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

Wanderlust has its moments. It's sporadically funny - funny enough to deliver a good laugh or two. The problem is, it doesn't do more than that, and the comedy is inconsistent.

It wastes a situation filled with comic potential, forgoing sharp satire for lazy jokes even Beavis and Butthead would find beneath them.

The film's problems go deeper than its outdated source of mockery and its narrative sloppiness. Worse than anything else, it's just not all that funny.

So you think you've seen silly? And smarmy? And inept? Wait till you see "Wanderlust," though that's just a figure of speech; I'm not suggesting that you actually lay eyes on this naked grab for box office bucks.

Akin to a skit that never ends

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?

The title of Wanderlust ("strong desire to travel") is erroneous. And yet, it perfectly encapsulates our unyielding urge to flee as far away from this bohemian bomb as possible.

"Wanderlust" was a huge disappointment that had potential that is quickly trashed with the cheap humor and endless blooper reel.

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston are fitfully funny, but this R-rated comedy badly miscalculates exactly how hilarious nudists, hallucinogens and free love really are.

Two words: blooper reel. Yea, it has one.

Wanderlust is a perfect title. The film feels more like a series of Saturday Night Live skits set to a theme. Only the skits just aren't that funny.

Wildly uneven, and based around a bunch of things- hippies, hallucinogens, nudity, ostentatious single-character scenery-chewing - that aren't nearly as hilarious as the filmmakers think they are

For every few jokes that hit in this story about a recession-battered New York couple finding themselves on a Georgia commune, one sputters and dies.
