Yeah yeah Monday is almost over but that’s okay right? It’s never too late to write! I’ve been busy all day cleaning and doing laundry on my day off. Very exciting yes I know. Before heading to downtown Austin yesterday for a little SXSW action, my friends and I caught Wanderlust at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin. Love this place. The only thing I didn’t like is the non-stadium seating that we’ve become so accustom to. That’s just because it’s pretty difficult to see through people’s heads! Anyway, let me just say; I thought this movie was a blast from start to finish. They’re weren’t any boring or dull moments at all. I’m not saying it was the best movie I’ve ever seen, nor the funniest. It was just very entertaining. A lot of fun, a little vulgar and a lot of laughs.
This film is basically about an NYC couple who end up at a hippie compound type place that changes their lives. It test their love ,and questions what they really want and need in life. Not in a sappy way though. I wouldn’t say it’s a romantic comedy but a comedy that has some romance. Don’t they all? Even Tommy boy has a little romance! That’s about it folks! I don’t want to ruin it for everyone you know.
Paul Rudd is super charming like always, and the rest of the cast doesn’t disappoint. It co-stars Jennifer Aniston, as well as Justin Theroux(my number #1 for the past 14 years and running lol) Malin Akerman, Alan Alda and many awesome character actors we all know and love; but don’t know their names.
Fun fact: Despite being naked throughout the film, Joe Lo Truglio wore a prosthetic penis. Most of the cast ran up to him and touched it as a joke after showing up on set. Maybe that will give you an indication of the type of film this is.
I say GO SEE IT!!! It’s a fun, lighthearted, great date or out with the girls type film. Fun for all! Happy watching.
