    Jesus Is Just Alright With Me: All The Songs Featured In 'Wanderlust'

    OK, despite delivering the relative funny, "Wanderlust" kind of tanked at the box-office this weekend. For shame. The David Wain-directed, Judd Apatow-produced film is pretty funny all things considered. Sure, Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston, the film's two leads are a little dull,...

    Weekend Box Office: Relativity Hoo-Rahs 'Act Of Valor' To The Top Spot In Another Strong Weekend

    It’s been a red meat kinda year at the box office. The number one slot at the box office has been taken over by an R-rated action movie five times thus far, the latest example being hoo-rah Navy SEALs film “Act of Valor”. With constant studio waffling over ratings, mid-budgeted fare like “Contraband...

    In Theaters: Get 'Gone' With 'Wanderlust' Or Do 'Good Deeds' For An 'Act Of Valor'

    Good Friday (oops, that was totally accidental), everyone. The Fat Tuesday spirit is now gone, no more flaming skull heads riding motorcyles for us. Nope, it's just Tyler Perry films and fish out of water comedies. They are making us give up Nic Cage for Lent and I just can't stand it. This weekend ...

    Wanderlust—movie review

    If you’re a fan of the comedy generated by The State and 'Stella’s' David Wain, Ken Marino, and their performer pals, you’ll either be the perfect audience for 'Wanderlust' or you may find the humor overly familiar. I am not a diehard fan, and I found the film mildly amusing.

    David Wain Talks Improv, Working With Judd Apatow & The Value Of Test Screening 'Wanderlust'

    On paper, “Wanderlust” probably looks like your standard high concept romantic comedy. Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd are two New Yorker’s displaced by job loss who decide to go on the road and figure out what to do with their lives. They wind up on a rural commune called Elysium w...

    David Wain Promises A "Bizarro Cut" Of 'Wanderlust' On The DVD, Made Up Completely Of Alternate Lines & Jokes

    There's a clear message that David Wain wants to send with "Wanderlust": he will move you. In fact, he'll even massage your head if you're in the aisle of a screening, as he did yesterday as a part of Film Comment Selects at Lincoln Center in New York City (seriously, the autho...

    Review: David Wain's Easygoing 'Wanderlust' Is A Light, Shaggy, Scruffy & Diverting Comedy

    While it's their first collaboration, one would be completely excused if they believed writer/director David Wain ('Wainy Days," "Stella," "Role Models") and Judd Apatow ("Knocked Up," etc.) had been working together for years. Clearly kin-like comedic souls or brothers from another mother, Wain and...

    How 'Wanderlust' Illustrates the Problem With Every David Wain Movie

    Like every David Wain movie, "Wanderlust" contains the grain of a good idea that never reaches fruition. A kind of spiritual sequel to "Wet Hot American Summer," the most widely revered entry in the Wain oeuvre, "Wanderlust" follows an unemployed New York couple wh...
