    When the script sags, Wain and producer Judd Apatow rely on a top team of actors to keep you laughing. show more

    So this is a good comedy, as bad as it can be and still be good, but good. show more

    Some of the players are endearingly goofy in this good-natured comedy, particularly Rudd and Theroux. But Wanderlust trundles along unevenly, never reaching the cleverly raucous state it seeks. show more

    So you think you've seen silly? And smarmy? And inept? Wait till you see Wanderlust, though that's just a figure of speech; I'm not suggesting that you actually lay eyes on this naked grab for box office bucks. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    David Wain's riotous, raunchy, and more than a little raggedy showcase for Rudd's improv genius and Aniston's airy groundedness. He is gut-busting funny, she gently ticklish - ideal comic rapport. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Despite the calculated advance press about the movie's nudity, polygamy, dirty talk, etc., David Wain's comedy is depressingly banal. And all that breathless hype now feels like nothing more than manipulation. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Stars Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston find themselves at home here, playing against a stock-raising performance by Justin Theroux as the charismatic libertine who prompts their adventure. show more

    Wanderlust is an agreeable comedy that peters out halfway through. show more

    Ian Buckwalter NPR

    Wain's brand of humor thrives on stepping over the line - and then sprinting a few hundred yards past it. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A raunchy, often hilarious satire from the Judd Apatow stable that lacks any real bite. show more

    This movie was the worst. The acting was below par, character were unfunny, and what\'s with all the naked people. I should no better than to go to any movie with Malin Akerman in it. It is always a bad movie, all she knows how to do is show off her boobs. What the hell was David Wain thinking?

    A little over the top with jokes and visuals, but, entertaining. More jokes worked than not.

    I\'m giving it a 5 star rating because I love both of the lead actors & I love comedies , & by just seeing the preview it made me laugh so I can just imagine what the movie is going to be like.

    In one word LAME! Plenty of gratuitous nudity of course Jennifer Aniston\'s brief nudity was blurred out, guess it is only ok for the minor stars. Made caricatures of the characters living in the intentional community to the point where they weren\'t even interesting. Wish I could get my ticket money back.

    I can\'t believe the bad reviws! We thouroughly enjoyed this funny, feel good movie-silly, yes, but definitely not a rehashed plot and so many truly funny laugh out loud moments.
