Story


Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in Wanderlust, a raucous comedy from director David Wain (Role Models) and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) about a couple who leaves the pressures of the big city and joins a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself.

George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George's awful brother in Atlanta.

On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can't buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them.

Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the laughter is served up naughty and nice, and frequently au naturel, earning it an R rating when perhaps RR would have been more appropriate..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..offers the most familiar conflict it can think of as backdrop for the impending marital crisis..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..mined for cheap laughs or timely drama ages ago, complete with comical nudity and trippy hallucinogenic freakouts..”
by Nathan Rabin [AV Club]
