The flick Wanderlust hit the screens in 2012. The movie is an American comedy film that was directed by David Wain. The movie revolves around the characters done by Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. The movie received a negative review from critics.

The film bombed at the box-office. The movie was not able to recover the amount put into it. Paul Rudd does the role of George in the movie, and Jennifer Aniston does the role of Linda in the film. The plot opens quite well with George and Linda as a married couple living together in Manhattan.

The couple leads a smooth life in the city. They have jobs for themselves and have no worry of a primary cause. But, both of them are a spent force and do not have time to spare for each other. Rudd does an introverted man in the movie. 

There is some notable twist in the film with a scene showing him getting involved in car accident. Both George and Linda lose their jobs and are not able to maintain the same lifestyle as before. The couple turns vagabonds and takes a long trip with the initial halt in Atlanta. 

There, they visit George’s brother. Ken Marino does the role of the brother. The movie is meant to be comedy but misses out on the spark of humor. There is a line of demarcation between humor and absolute craziness. 

The movie tries to stick to humor. In a failed attempt to do so, the film happens to be the heights of absurdity. The movie’s concept is just about how one has to learn to live with what he or she has. Or in other words, ‘Count your Blessings and know you Limits’. 

Even the most ‘hilarious’ of comedies does not kindle laughter among the audiences. But some jokes in the movie have turned out to be very lewd. Wain, the movie’s director, could have stressed more on the characters of George and Linda. 

But the actors who have done the roles have done it with sincerity, and their efforts are commendable. The movie has profanity of language and lewdness in the jokes. The film meant to be an entertainment does not stick to its expectations.
