Cupid's Pulse Article: Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd Join a Commune in ‘Wanderlust’Cupid's Pulse Article: Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd Join a Commune in ‘Wanderlust’

By Matthew Dougherty

This one comes from the director of the hit comedy Role Models, which is already a good sign.  The film stars two great comedic actors, Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston, as a married couple who find themselves victims of the economy when Rudd’s character gets fired from his job.  Forced to leave there pricey sanctuary in Manhattan, the couple ends up joining a commune of sorts and begin living among them. Naturally, comedy ensues.  The trailer has some pretty hysterical moments.  Also, it should be noted that the movie is rated R, which is usually a good sign for comedies like this.

Should You See It? Yes, this is going to be a nice, lighthearted romantic comedy right in the middle of the all too serious Oscar season.  If you like either of the stars or the director’s previous film Role Models, then this is a must-see.

Who To Take: The movie looks to pack enough comedy to please the guys.  Its R-rating should stir you away from seeing it with your mother.  However, this might be the most fun with your group of friends on a Friday night.

Looking for a romantic getaway?  Just don’t join a cult.

In Wanderlust, the main couple is just looking to find a new place to let their relationship blossom.  Sometimes it’s necessary in relationships to escape from your everyday lives and experience something new.  Here are some suggestions for romantic getaways that you will both enjoy:

1. Anyplace with a beach: Who doesn’t like the beach?  Plus, it can be extremely romantic at anytime during your trip.  You can hang out there during the day then after dinner return for a moonlit walk in the sand.

2. An unfamiliar place with culture: Go someplace where neither of you have any connections.  Immerse yourselves in the culture and walk away with new, unique experiences that are just your own.

3. Someplace that you both want to be: Compromises are a part of every relationship.  Yeah, Paris might sound great to you, but he wants to see the Coliseum in Rome.  Don’t force him to go someplace he doesn’t want to and don’t just do whatever he wants.  It should be a place that you both can enjoy and will remember forever.
