'Wanderlust' wins, but wanes

Feb 23, 2012 Full story: Belleville News Democrat 11

David Wain's "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.

WANDERLUST
Sure. It made me laugh some. But, basically, this movie sucks. It’s nice to see Jennifer has some work, but that is really all the movie is about,well...that the "F" word, and nudity. Regretfully, it is full of cliché and tired jokes that have been all been done before. Potty humor abounds.
Nevertheless, and particularly disturbing, is the movie's irresponsible and less than reverent treatment of Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is NOT a recreational drug. Aya is not your father's LSD nor does it necessarily belong in the psychedelic-hallucinogenic class (Shanon, et al.). It is more as a Vedic type "Soma" and belongs in a class of its own. It is comparable to the "Tree of Life" and is a Sacrament of the Santo Daime and UDV Churches.
If ANYONE ever tries to use Ayahuasca haphazardly and inappropriately as seen in this movie -and someone will- they will surely DIE. Preparation is required. A Shaman is strongly recommended.
Talk about irresponsible!!! Hey Jennifer, don't be frightfully dim your whole life. Try the Ayahuasca. But remember to put down the weed, alcohol, meat, coffee, tyramine containing foods, and OTC and Rx meds weeks to months before using it. And FAST for a few days prior, lest you die too.
(See other interaction warnings on web)
I guestimate at least 1000 deaths in ther USA alone before appropriate warnings are issued. Way to go guys. You really stepped in it this time.

Jennifer's a nice woman to look at but as dull as a butter knife. Thanks for posting your review of this movie. I think I'm going to avoid seeing it.

Why would anyone
in their right mind
release this boring
and painful to watch movie,
in the first place?

Do you think that Ticky
will one day boast that she made
a whole lot of movies
in a short amount of time,
and she wants to see any other actress try it.

Well, sure!!!! If you just go through the motions,
with out a single effort to actually show the slightest bit
of emotional envolvement, and without breaking a SWEAT!!!

WHAT'S my line.
Ummmm what was I supposed to be doing????
WHAT comes next????

I feel like giggling. I can't help it.
I have to have a ciggerette break.

I have to go pottie!!!!

New York.
A Fish Bowl?

Only if you are a sneaky boyfriend stealer,
and you walk up one street and down the other
day after day, waiting for somebody to snap
your photo and send it to TMZ, so you
might get some recognition,
only to find out that more than one
New Yorker thinks that you are full of baloney!!!

this writer and some of you commenters can speak for yourself. I saw the movie wanderlust and I loved it .It was halariously funny. I cries laughing all through out the movie.The performances by an actor and actresses was very good.Wanderlust bombed not because it was not a good movie but it came out on a weekend that had stiff competition. you cannot believe the critics.
for an example the artist that won for best picture.This movie was a silent film.you let the critics discourage you from seeing a very good crazy funny movie.this movie to me was the best comedy since go with it and horrible bosses. It was better than brides maid. I would like to say congratulations to the cast of wanderlust. Especially jennifer,rudd and theroux.

I guess that I was typing too fast as usual!

Naturally, I meant to say:

Hey, Justin!
ARE you packing your bags?

Fake Story:

Justin!!! Wake up and answer me!!!
Are you happy with me, or not???
Are you thinking about leaving me or not???
Are you tired of me, already, and want to go back
to the way things were before be hooked up, or not???

Why do you waunder away from me,
when we go to a party, without telling me
where or why you find it necessary to leave me
sitting there alone, looking just like a silly fool?

Why do you turn on the t.v.,
rather than sit and hold a conversation
with me, and without holding me
in your arms, the way you use to?

Is it true that Heidi is now
taking your mother to lunch and buying her
little gifts, and speaking with her daily?

Justin, wake up and answer my questions.

Say it louder, Justin. I did not hear you!!!
