If you enjoyed the amusing Role Models a few years ago, then you'll most likely get a kick out of David Wain's new film Wanderlust. Uptight Manhattanites Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston lose their tiny but expensive apartment and wander into a hippie commune that still practices free love circa 1971. Much hilarity ensues as they get to grips with doorless rooms, vegetarian meals and a nudist writer. There's also a sub-plot involving land developers who want to build a casino in the area. Rudd continues to show why he's ideal for playing straight-man parts when everyone else lets everything hang loose (literally, in the case of the nudist writer). The film isn't as sharp in its cultural observations as Role Models, but it's a relaxed, easygoing comedy that doesn't overstay its welcome.
I really think FilmBuff76 deserves a job with this site! I've read a few of his/hers reviews and found they informed me much more about the film and made me feel optimistic about my choice.. However Mike Sheridan's reviews always put me off.. He rarely has anything good to say and writes with just his personal opinion in mind instead of thinking of all the different types of people and their likes etc. I also find him a bit cynical and jaded. Some fresh blood is definitely needed on this site. Please take note!!! Thank You!
I really enjoyed this movie and have also come to completely ignore the"professional" reviews on this website as I find them way off. Like Project X and Safe House 4 stars? Really?
I agree :)
This film was terrible by the way, not worth going to see!
Watch the late late show! That bad, really!
