DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This second screen teaming of Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston is not the more gentle romantic film that their first film, The Object of My Affection, was nor her usual rom-coms, but something far more raunchy and edgy. Fans of the pair should enjoy. Constant language, sexual references, nudity, and drug use make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Wanderlust is better than the average direct-to-video throw-away, but not by enough to make it worth a full admission price.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Though Wanderlust has a silly-funny premise and moments of inspired lunacy, it wanders aimlessly and runs some weak gags into the ground.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average Where "Wanderlust" hews more to cliches and lazy stereotypes about the subculture it's lampooning - in this case a latter-day hippie commune outside Atlanta - it bears the same giddy rhythms and half-baked humanism.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 92 moviegoers:
TEENS:Two females enjoyed it very much and two rated it "Good/Average." Not enough reviews to be of much help.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:GREAT REVIEWS! Both the males and females rated "Wanderlust" very high with no one rating it even a little bit low.
ADULTS:Nearly all the males enjoyed "Wanderlust" very much with close to half indicating they loved it. Only a very small percentage rated it "Good/Average." More of the females loved it but more also rated it only "Good/Average," which is still a decent review but indicates a little disappointment.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
George (Paul Rudd) and Linda (Jennifer Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George's awful brother in Atlanta.

On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can't buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them.

Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?
