HOLLYWOOD (WWJ) – When I received my e-mail invitation to attend a special advance screening of the movie “Wanderlust,” I immediately did a Google search, pulled up the trailer and watched to see what it was about. And after watching the trailer, I sent my response: “Yes, I will be there. I laughed through the entire trailer, so I can’t wait!”
From watching the trailer, I knew Wanderlust was aiming for the funny bone and it definitely hits its mark. This is one laugh-out-loud funny movie.
Wanderlust stars Paul Rudd as George and Jennifer Aniston as Linda, an overextended, stressed out couple living in Manhattan. When George loses his job, they are forced to move out of their Big City digs and in with George’s obnoxious brother in Atlanta. But something happens on the way to The A-T-L. They decide to spend the night at Elysium, a commune inhabited by a cast of characters with a unique way of looking at life.
When George and Linda’s lives collide with those at Elysium, everyone’s life is changed forever. How? You’ll just have to watch the movie to find out. And, if you want to watch the trailer before heading out, visit the Wanderlust Facebook page for that and more.
In addition to Rudd and Aniston, Wanderlust stars Justin Theroux, Malin Akerman, Kathryn Hahn, Lauren Ambrose, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Alan Alda (who sorta pops up surprisingly).
Wanderlust is in theaters now. Rated R.
