Wanderlust (Relativity 2012, Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd)


Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd star in broad comedy Wanderlust from David Wain (director of Role Models) about a couple seeking an escape from materialism. When George and Linda Gergenblatt (Rudd and Aniston) are forced to sell their newly purchased Manhattan apartment due to ramifications of the recession, their sole housing option is to temporarily stay with Paul’s vile brother Rick (co-writer Ken Marino). But, while searching for a B&B on the way to Rick’s, the couple serendipitously stumble across Elysium, an eccentric community of clothing-optional neo-hippies.

And when life with Rick proves too much to bear, George and Linda decide to turn their back on capitalism and decamp to their new-found haven from avarice. However, they soon find that, despite initial appearances, the commune is definitely not a place of perfect happiness…

Also starring Justin Theroux and Malin Akerman as the Elysium couple keen to seduce George and Linda; and Alan Alda as the founder of the collective.
