Wanderlust Blu-ray Review

I must confess, I actually rather liked Wanderlust. I knew what to expect with David Wain at the helm since I had seen Role Models, in which Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott played a painfully funny enforced "big Brother" scenario at the behest of the courts to two troublesome kids. I very much enjoyed it, and the prospect of Judd Apatow being on board for Wanderlust as producer seemed promising too. Basically, I was hoping for more of the same, and I wasn't disappointed. Wanderlust delivers just what you might have expected, an amusing and largely improvised comedy romantic romp. It doesn't take itself too seriously at all, which is a rare gift in comedy these days. This is demonstrated perfectly in one one of the out takes on the extras, where Jennifer Aniston is fielding...

Well I enjoyed Role Models so might have to give this a look. Your review has certainly got me interested. It'll be the first ever Jennifer Aniston movie I've actively sought out!

Glad you're going to give it a shot!

It's funny, I genuinely thought that Elizabeth Banks would have fit in far better than Jennifer Aniston did in this!

Perhaps then it wouldn't have fallen just marginally short of Role Models :)

Curious to hear what you thought!

Yeah I can understand where you're coming from. As I mentioned in my review, someone I watched the movie with for the first time didn't particularly enjoy that scene either, so it's certainly divisive stuff! I did find it rather amusing, and in some ways refreshing, since we don't really get very much of that improvised gross-out comedy these days.

There's definitely room for it amongst audiences, but I do take your point that it's truly cringe-worthy stuff.

Did you find the rest of the movie enjoyable at all?

As a movie I would personaly give it a 5.5/10 just as a comparison last night I watched Brave and would give that a 9.9/10.:)
