Wanderlust Synopsis

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in Wanderlust, a comedy from director David Wain (Role Models) and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) about a couple who leaves the pressures of the big city and joins a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself.

George (Rudd) and Linda (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?

Weekend Box Office: Act of Valor Takes Top Honors Weekend Box Office: Act of Valor Takes Top Honors
It was a military thriller that took top honors this weekend, leading yet another strong February weekend. Act of Valor debuted at number one with over $24 million, bringing in double its reported $12 million production cost. Even more impressive, the movie has no big names to attract audiences, but it managed to handily outperform several movies that did.

David Wain Talks Working With Paul Rudd On Wanderlust David Wain Talks Working With Paul Rudd On Wanderlust
Since making his feature film debut with Wet Hot American Summer in 2001, director David Wain has never made a movie without Paul Rudd. From the dickish Andy in the summer camp comedy to the narrator with a moral dilemma in The Ten, to the acerbic and bitter Danny in Role Models, Wain has always turned to Rudd for his projects. But what is it about the actor that makes Wain never want to make a movie without him?

Ken Marino Talks Putting The Ego Aside For Comedy In Wanderlust Ken Marino Talks Putting The Ego Aside For Comedy In Wanderlust
When you have a cast as talented as the one featured in Wanderlust, you know there’s going to be a lot of improvisation. In their previous films, actors like Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn, Kerri Kenney, and Joe Lo Truglio have demonstrated that they can be at their most hilarious when they aren’t sticking to the script.

Paul Rudd Arrives Late To The Orgy In New Wanderlust Red Band Trailer Paul Rudd Arrives Late To The Orgy In New Wanderlust Red Band Trailer
There was a long drought of advertising for David Wain's Wanderlust. While the first trailer for the comedy premiered back in early November, we saw absolutely nothing from the movie in December or January. In the past few weeks, however, that has totally changed. This month alone we've seen three new clips from the movie premiere online - including this one earlier today.

Wanderlust Clip Has Jennifer Aniston's Character Missing Sleeping Pills And Lattes Wanderlust Clip Has Jennifer Aniston's Character Missing Sleeping Pills And Lattes
The the latest clip from the upcoming David Wain directed film Wanderlust raises an interesting topic. Whether by social conditioning or simple human nature, we like to have nice things and we tend to rely on them to get through our day. But wouldn’t life just be so much easier and simpler if we didn’t “need” those things?

Paul Rudd Kills A Defenseless Fly In New Clip From Wanderlust Paul Rudd Kills A Defenseless Fly In New Clip From Wanderlust
I hate insects. In fact, it goes far beyond that. I hate anything that has more than four appendages. Insects, beetles, bugs, arachnids, you name it, I hate it. So, naturally, whenever I see one of them, my first instinct is to smash and smush it until it's nothing more than a pile of goo on the bottom of my shoe. Apparently this kind of behavior doesn't sit well in hippy communes.

Jennifer Aniston Attached To Dramedy Miss You Already Jennifer Aniston Attached To Dramedy Miss You Already
Jennifer Aniston has spent the past three years appearing in comedic pictures for better (Horrible Bosses) or worse (Just Go With It), but she could be bringing this solely silly streak to a close with Miss You Already, a dramedy that's currently being flaunted about the European Film Market. Aniston is reportedly attached to star in the film that follows the decay of two life-long friends' relationship following one's pregnancy and the other's loss of health.

New Clip From Wanderlust Has An Easter Egg For Role Models Fans New Clip From Wanderlust Has An Easter Egg For Role Models Fans
In David Wain's 2008 comedy Role Models, the main characters, played by Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, are constantly annoyed by an extremely cheery member of the Big Brother program that they have been forced to take part in. Played by A.D. Miles, one of the character's most annoying traits was that he would keep singing a fake song by Wings called "Love Take Me Down To The Streets."

Wanderlust Trailer: Funny People, Funny Jokes, And Goat Milking Wanderlust Trailer: Funny People, Funny Jokes, And Goat Milking
Sometimes I'll write up a trailer and say that it seems funny, despite the fact that it never actually made me laugh. That's just what happens when you're working home alone-- it's hard for something to be so funny that it actually makes you laugh out loud. But Wanderlust, the trailer for David Wain's new comedy that debuted today at Yahoo! Movies, actually got a solid guffaw out of me more than once
