It has an interesting premise, a strong cast and a reputable director. It also has a script so painfully bad, the mind reels at how this movie even got made.

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.
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.

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.

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.
March 23, 2012
A random, tedious and tone-deaf comedy, a feeble recycling of every hippie commune cliche you've ever heard.
March 23, 2012
...yet another in an increasingly long line of subpar comedies from producer Judd Apatow.
March 19, 2012
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.

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.

Director David Wain's experience is TV and this crude film seems more like a sitcom that probably won't be renewed.
March 3, 2012
Rudd does some great riffing (especially his hillbilly dirty talk), but ultimately the sum of Wanderlust's parts is greater than the whole.
March 3, 2012
Wanderlust is flawed, too, but for its exploration of financial ruin and alternative lifestyles, it shows once again that Aniston, at the very least, knows which way the wind is blowing.
March 2, 2012
David Wain's film sports an intriguing premise, but the end result never really commits to any particular viewpoint.
March 2, 2012
Take away the gratuitous frontal nudity, clean up the language and Wanderlust could be one of those lame 1960s comedies that considered itself oh, so daring for mentioning LSD or birth control pills.
March 2, 2012
Trust me, this movie doesn't deliver on any level, high or low.
March 1, 2012
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?
March 1, 2012
There's a germ of an idea for a comedy in Wanderlust, but instead of letting it grow, the people involved have instead allowed it to fester.
