Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in Wanderlust, a comedy from director David Wain (Role Models) and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) about a couple who leave the pressures of the big city and join a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself. 

George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George's awful brother in Atlanta. On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can't buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them. 

Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?

Favorite Scenes:
-All the mirror talk
-The birth
-The protesting
-Open relationships
-When Linda drank that special tea

My Thoughts:
I thought it was a really good movie. It was really funny and heavy at the same time. Obviously they were in a really serious situation and they did what they thought was best. And it got pretty crazy around there. The people of Elysium live very different than we do. They're vegan and aren't keen on technology. And are into the natural way of life. I thought it was pretty interesting. I would never survive if I lived like that, but whatever makes them happy.

I wasn't really expecting to see all that nudity either, but the awkwardness made for some good scenes. This movie really had everything, I wanted to cry at times. And at other times I cried from laughing so hard. I definitely recommend watching this movie, but not with your kids.

I completely recommend this movie!
Definitely a must see!
