1 Wanderlust

Starring: Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Malin Akerman
Director: David Wain
Out: 24 February 2012 (U.S. Dates)
A straight-laced New York couple (Rudd, Aniston) leave the big city after he is laid off and unintentionally join a freewheeling new-age community, where the only rule is to be yourself. Produced by Judd Apatow, ‘Wanderlust’ reunites Rudd with director David Wain (‘Role Models’). Rudd has been this character many times before, which adds to the general ‘meh’ factor surrounding the movie. In truth it’s a well observed comedy that sometimes meanders a bit, but those who’ve never encountered the types of people portrayed in the community won’t see much humour in it, “dull” is a common reaction.
