This will be the third time Paul Rudd plays a character named George. He previously played a George in The Object of My Affection (1998) and How Do You Know? (2010) See more »
At the beginning when George is crossing the street in New York while talking on his phone, he walks in front of two yellow taxis. When he is hit by the yellow taxi, the camera cuts back to the original angle but the second taxi is now a blue/green sedan entering the intersection. See more »
You know, it's amazing: I can remember Janice Woo with perfect clarity, I just can't remember where the deed is. You know why? Because I didn't fuck the deed.

"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.
