There’s something decidedly retro about
Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd star in this new Judd Apatow-produced comedy about a yuppie couple who attempt life in a counter-culture commune
new Apatow-produced comedy, Wanderlust, something which makes it seem as if it should star not Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd, but a young Goldie Hawn and Bill Murray.
It could be the insanely dated premise of “yuppies go to hippie-land”, a scenario that seems more fitting for a comedy of the early eighties than for today. The following trailer is strung together on tired clichés about the patchouli-scented, free-loving, counter-culture commune Rudd and Aniston’s characters wind up learning life lessons from. Our verdict thus far? A sizeable meh.
On the other hand, there is a bit with a horse which looks quite good. We love a bit with a horse, us.
Wanderlust comes to the UK next March. Watch the first trailer below.
