I doubt that Rudd, Aniston, or Wain fans will be disappointed by the effort.

"Wanderlust" is best when the actors involved are unfettered by concerns of furthering the story and play fast and loose, when they can just go for it with an infectious, improvisational glee.

Wanderlust isn't perfect. However, the cast is both immensely talented and clearly invested in making the movie. That combination goes a long way toward overcoming the relatively minor issues with regards to the script.

Ultimately, Wain's Wanderlust is silly, well-made nonsense with a light critique of what we should hold nearest and dearest in life.

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.

Wanderlust doesn't have much new to say but it's fast, vulgar, forgettable fun.
August 22, 2012
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.

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.

... 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.
March 9, 2012
Too good-natured to dislike it, and in the same breath, too good-natured to have much depth.
March 9, 2012
It is not the story but the ensemble cast that saves "Wanderlust" from being a mediocre comedy.
March 8, 2012
An unusually sharp script makes this silly comedy thoroughly enjoyable, even when it tips over the top.
March 3, 2012
Rudd and Aniston shine in Wanderlust.
March 2, 2012
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.
March 2, 2012
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.
