WANDERLUST Trailer With Paul Rudd & Jennifer Aniston Needs Jolt Of Life

From the guys behind Role Models and let's hope that when the red-band trailer comes it might feel less bland & lifeless.

Role Models was a Judd Apatow-lite comedy, a movie that had it's moments for sure but it didn't penetrate the sweet spot of emotion that Apatow so frequently finds. The film was directed by David Wain, co-written by Ken Marino and starred Paul Rudd, and now the trio are back for Wanderlust, another R-rated comedy that judging by the first look trailer, again feels like it misses it's mark. This despite Judd Apatow producing this time round. Rudd co-stars with Jennifer Aniston as a married couple who have to leave New York City behind and relocate when Rudd's character loses his job. From there they spend most of their time avoiding hippies and other goofballs on a commune and none of it looks particularly funny. For an R-rated comedy it feels rather harmless and inoffensive (compared say to the hilarious Horrible Bossess... though I guess the red-band trailer will come later) and I can't help but think Rudd, Aniston and their co-stars Malin Akerman, Justin Theroux, Joe Lo Truglio and Alan Alda could be starring in a thousand other better movies. The movie looks to be one of those forgettable February comedies, as forgettable and bland say as the last time Aniston/Rudd paired with each other on screen in 1998's The Object of My Affection. Let's hope when the red-band trailer comes it kicks some life into this film; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQjIs6R2vig Wanderlust is due for release on February 24, 2012 in the U.S. and on March 2nd, 2012 in the UK.
