    I don't know what tools of the trade Paul Rudd and director David Wain share to dream up the kind of inspired nutso stuff Rudd has done in smart-funny-raunchy winners like "Wet Hot American Summer" and "Role Models." But whatever it is, the two are in a groove - and backed up by some blissed-out creative co-conspirators.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

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

  • Mick LaSalle

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    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.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Being taken under Apatow's wing may have been a big career break for writer-director David Wain, but this lacks the sharp personality of some of his earlier movies.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's not fresh terrain for satire, yet most of the jokes play riotously well.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Though Wanderlust finally laughs off the real discomforting conclusion that it's edging toward, it's gut-busting funny when mocking their hopeless options.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • John DeFore

    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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Alternately mortified and charmed by the unhinged lifestyle, the film goofily celebrates the idea of a societal escape before drowning its idealism in a puddle of half-formed jokes.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    Wanderlust is an agreeable comedy that peters out halfway through.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

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

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Travers

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

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    Wagging a limp dick at a host of up-to-the-minute issues, Wanderlust, manages to feel current, and relatively funny, without ever becoming particularly pointed, resulting in a floppy but satisfactory middlebrow comedy.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Wanderlust is about two or three script passes away from being a consistently funny, dramatically coherent romantic comedy.

    Slate Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    While "Role Models" mined riches even in the well-plowed comedic soil of cretins befriending kids, Wanderlust's equally musty city-vs-country culture clash plot finds only flecks of hilarity in mostly bland-to-bold mediocrity.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    If anything, the manic energy and aggressive sarcasm of Wain's "Role Models" (2008), which also starred Rudd, has become much more refined in Wanderlust, (well, as refined as something this raw can be).

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    It's not a top-shelf Apatow production, and by the end, it's obvious Wanderlust was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    None of the hilarity is enough to keep Wanderlust from feeling like a late-night comedy-show sketch stretched to feature length. But why look a giggle-prone gift horse in the mouth?

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The effortlessly charming Rudd - who is never funnier here than when trying to psych himself up for a tryst with commune-dweller Malin Akerman with a series of increasingly preposterous voices - and an attractive, game supporting cast nearly sell the warmed-over material.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Wanderlust is flawed, too, but for its exploration of financial ruin and alternative lifestyles, it shows once again that Aniston, at the very least, knows which way the wind is blowing.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Wanderlust, a comedy that looks way better than it actually is set amidst the dreck of late winter releases.

    Time Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    For every few jokes that hit in this story about a recession-battered New York couple finding themselves on a Georgia commune, one sputters and dies.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Between this film and last summer's "Horrible Bosses," Aniston's coyness - starring in explicit movies without having to be explicit herself - seems to be becoming her stock in trade. It's not a particularly commendable one, and Wanderlust does little to disprove that she's still a star more suited to TV rather than the big screen.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Okay, Wanderlust has its moments. It's sporadically funny - funny enough to deliver a good laugh or two. The problem is, it doesn't do more than that, and the comedy is inconsistent.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    This movie has no teeth. It does not want to say anything, other than the unprintable word for penis, over and over.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Despite some amusing moments, everyone simply works too hard at providing rambunctious zaniness, until one grows painfully aware the inevitable outtakes reel will be superior to the movie.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    This movie is "Finian's Rainbow" for dunderheads. Rudd has a few amusing moments talking to himself in a mirror (he's trying to convince himself he's a stud) but he would have been better off talking himself out of this film.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    If not for a few choice performance moments and a couple of peppy montages, Wanderlust would be cinematic compost, recycled and thoroughly smelly.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    There's no real reason to see this movie. It's exhausting and pointless and not amusing enough to make up for its failings. You can do better. The filmmakers could have done better. Honestly, you're better off staying home and making hummus.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Film encyclopedias may beg to differ, the Cahiers du Cinéma might correct me, but, as far as your humble correspondent knows, Wanderlust is the first mainstream movie ever to star a Floppy Prosthetic Penis.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    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.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • David Denby

    As broad and obvious as Wanderlust is, it's often very funny. [5 March 2012, p. 87]
