Rudd and Aniston go communing with the hippies but forget to pack any laughs!
Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd are New York’s newest residents one day and then unemployed and homeless the next in the new Judd Apatow comedy “Wanderlust”. Linda (Aniston) is woman with no sense of who she is, trying her latest Endeavour as a documentary film maker. She is thrashed by HBO when she tried to sell a film about penguins with testicular cancer. Linda is married to George (Rudd), a successful broker on Wall Street, that is until the FBI swoops in and closes the firm and arrests his boss. Once the couple finds themselves newly unemployed, they must give up their new micro loft on the west side of Manhattan and forced to go south to Atlanta to live with George’s brother Rick (Ken Marino).
On the long painful journey down to Atlanta, the couple stumble upon a bed and breakfast called Elysium. The first resident they meet is Wayne (Joe Lo Truglio), a nudist, writer and novice winemaker. Shocked by the site of “all of him” George runs the car off the road, forcing the couple to spend the night in Elysium. Linda and George soon learn that Elysium is a commune run by an old hippie named Carvin (Alan Alda) and a bunch of younger ones living the alternative lifestyle singing, doing drugs, growing food and of course practicing free love!
