DVD Review: Wanderlust
Posted by Jess
This could have been more original in a lot of its concepts, (outsiders finding a commune a crazy place?) and the combined whole fails to bring together the really interesting little pieces that were there. The nudist author/wine-maker is hysterical and personable. The fact that they have no privacy and really live within each others lives was really funny, but they didn't take it far enough to be really funny and hold the movie together. I was disappointed overall, but it's definitely a step up for Jennifer Aniston's rom-com career. There are a few moments you want to laugh out loud, but it doesn't bring enough that's new or sweet to be worthwhile.
