Trust me, this movie doesn't deliver on any level, high or low.
-Peter RainerFull Review
It's hard to remember a comedy so populated with good character bits.
-Nick PinkertonFull Review
A messy but occasionally very funny satirical comedy...
-David DenbyFull Review
Rudd might not be the subtlest straight man in movies, but, as of this moment, he's the best.
-David EdelsteinFull Review
Being taken under Apatow's wing may have been a big career break for writer-director David Wain, but this lacks the sharp personality of some of his earlier movies.
-J. R. JonesFull Review
[The] shaggy but agreeable Wanderlust [is] worth the detour.
-Dana StevensFull Review
It takes guts to do a comedy this big without gross-out slapstick, and the writers and the actors are all in.
-David EdelsteinFull Review
The leads are charming and although the plot twists are obvious, there are some funny scenes here.
-Stephen WhittyFull Review
A comedy that looks way better than it actually is set amidst the dreck of late winter releases...
-Mary F. PolsFull Review
Paul Rudd is the best friend a movie comedy can have.
-Peter TraversFull Review
Much of the movie feels pasted together; the story doesn't flow, it staggers forward.
-Tom LongFull Review
As far as your humble correspondent knows, Wanderlust is the first mainstream movie ever to star a Floppy Prosthetic Penis.
-Rick GroenFull Review
"Wanderlust'' may lack the satiric edge of Albert Brooks' "Lost in America,'' but it does deliver more big laughs than most comedies these days.
-Lou LumenickFull Review
A shambling mix of cheap laughs and genuinely funny set pieces from writer-director David Wain.
-Ann HornadayFull Review
'Wanderlust' is equal parts fresh humor and stale jokes.
-Richard RoeperFull Review
Though Wanderlust has a silly-funny premise and moments of inspired lunacy, it wanders aimlessly and runs some weak gags into the ground.
-Claudia PuigFull Review
"Wanderlust" is an assembly line producing laughs.
-Mick LaSalleFull Review
For every few jokes that hit in this story about a recession-battered New York couple finding themselves on a Georgia commune, one sputters and dies.
-Manohla DargisFull Review
So you think you've seen silly? And smarmy? And inept? Wait till you see "Wanderlust," though that's just a figure of speech; I'm not suggesting that you actually lay eyes on this naked grab for box office bucks.
-Joe MorgensternFull Review
[It] produces tons of laughs in its compact 90 minutes and doesn't overstay its welcome. The bad jokes are bad, but the good ones are great.
-Kara NesvigFull Review
Wain has always brought a kind of zany sensibility to his films, but he has never seemed more confident coloring outside the lines.
-Betsy SharkeyFull Review
Buried below the endless penis and poop jokes, a very funny movie lurks, one we only catch glimpses of amid a churning mire of icky stuff and dangling privates.
-Linda BarnardFull Review
This movie has no teeth. It does not want to say anything, other than the unprintable word for penis, over and over.
-Wesley MorrisFull Review
Wain's willingness to do anything for a laugh is a risk that pays off.
-Ian BuckwalterFull Review
It's an R-rated movie with a fair amount of nudity, a lot of sexual candor, truckloads of unspecified drugs, and more laughs than I've had at the movies in a very long time.
-Carrie RickeyFull Review
Wanderlust has its moments. It's sporadically funny - funny enough to deliver a good laugh or two. The problem is, it doesn't do more than that, and the comedy is inconsistent.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
"Wanderlust" feels about as edgy as an early Johnny Carson monologue and slightly less clever than a "Visualize Whirled Peas" bumper-sticker.
-Rafer GuzmanFull Review
"Wanderlust" achieves a tricky balance: It has enough laugh-out-loud moments that it wins you over, even though the movie as a whole doesn't add up.
-Moira MacDonaldFull Review
It's obvious "Wanderlust" was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch. But if you set enough funny people loose in front of a camera, they'll find a way to make you laugh, even if it's in spite of your better judgment.
-Barbara VanDenburghFull Review
Most of it is pretty funny stuff.
