Ileana’s Movie Review: Wanderlust


Starring: Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux

Summary: George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are two New Yorkers who are having a hard time keeping up with the expense of being New Yorkers. When George loses his job, he and Linda have no choice but to head down to Atlanta to live with George’s obnoxious brother Rick. By some act of fate the couple comes across a hippie commune called Elysium, led by a charismatic hippie named Seth (Theroux).  George and Linda soon realize that living with free-loving hippies is a much better idea than putting up with Rick, so they give commune life a chance. Hilarity ensues.

I have to admit that there is something very appealing about leaving the corporate world behind to become a hippie, at least for a little while. To be able to just forget about bills and work and go swimming or meditate or tend a garden without a schedule or agenda. It all sounds really good in theory but, as George and Linda realize in the movie, hippie life isn’t for everyone. The funniest parts in the movie are when George and Linda are trying to adapt to the hippie culture, whether it’s embracing the concept of free love or taking hallucinogenic drugs. And fair warning to all, this movie contains a lot of nudity and not by the people you actually want to see naked.

Trivia: Despite being naked throughout the film, Joe Lo Truglio (who plays nudist Wayne Davidson) wore a prosthetic penis. Most of the cast ran up to him and touched it as a joke after showing up on set.

Rated: R – For sexual content, graphic nudity, language and drug use.

Grade: B
