At the start of the guitar scene where George and Seth play "Two Princes" you can hear some of the others singing "Love Take Me Down to the Streets" a song written and recorded for David Wain's previous film Role Models (2008). The song is meant to sound like the Paul McCartney band Wings, and is often believed to be a Wings song as a running gag throughout Role Models. See more »
The "Deed" that is shown to us in the movie is titled "Deed of Trust". A warranty deed should have been used instead. A Deed of Trust does not give title to the property to the person buying the property, it gives title to a lender in trust to secure repayment of a loan used to buy the property. See more »
Oh it's you.
Yes, I'm doing primal gesticulating.
I thought someone was getting ax murdered.
The only thing getting murdered are my anxieties, tensions and fears. Speaking figuratively of course. I'm against violence of any kind.

"Wanderlust" is about a young New York couple who are suddenly left with no income and need to find a place to live. On the way to Atlanta, they come across a love commune and end up staying for a while. This movie is filled with failed attempts at humor, don't get me wrong, some parts are genuinely funny, but most of it seems like they tried too hard to get a laugh. The main redeeming quality of "Wanderlust" is Paul Rudd's performance. His character counter-acted the rest of the cast's mediocre comedy. Overall I think it is an interesting story line with a lot of potential that simply fell a little flat. I would definitely suggest waiting for this one to come out DVD and saving the ten dollars.
