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?… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Trust me, this movie doesn't deliver on any level, high or low."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"A messy but occasionally very funny satirical comedy..."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Even if Wanderlust is a bust, Rudd and Aniston will walk away from it with no repercussions as they both perform very well."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"Wanderlust has a freewheeling, improvisational aesthetic that doles out enough solid jokes, even if it does so erratically."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"The parts are often funnier, and more memorable, than the whole, but there's enough here to keep David Wain fans smiling."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"It's hard to remember a comedy so populated with good character bits."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"Rudd might not be the subtlest straight man in movies, but, as of this moment, he's the best."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"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."
‑ Justin Craig, FoxNews.com
"probably looked much better on paper"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"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."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"You know you're in trouble when not even the improvised scenes and fluffed out-takes are funny."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Being taken under Apatow's wing may have been a big career break for writer-director David Wain, but this lacks the sharp personality of some of his earlier movies."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Better for having ambitions, but ironically less perfect for failing to live up to those ideals."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"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."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"A random, tedious and tone-deaf comedy, a feeble recycling of every hippie commune cliche you've ever heard."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
