There's no easy way to say this without sounding like I hate her, because I really don't, but I have never been excited about a movie solely because it has Jennifer Aniston in it. At this stage in her career, her film work is about as prolific as her television work, but recently it's been narrowing away from films like The Good Girl and straight to an overly familiar formula. It's gotten to the point where you can describe a certain style of movie by saying "Sure, it's a romantic comedy, but it looks like a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy," and that tone is just no good for anyone (unless, of course, you're a big fan of the string of aggressive, battle-of-the-sexes style romcoms she's been locked into).

It looks like that's going to change thanks to Aniston's next film Wanderlust, co-starring Paul Rudd and produced by Judd Apatow, about a married couple that decide to live in a hippie commune after they can no longer afford to live in NYC.
