a decent enough fish out of water comedy, till the water dries out,
This review is from: Wanderlust [DVD] (DVD)
This fish out of the water comedy is good fun during the first half, it's never enough to have you rolling around in laughter, but it's always does enough to make you smile. Then in the second half the water dries up only to be replaced by broader, generic Judd Apatow production set pieces and a Hollywood ending that damages the film thanks to a plot hole opened up by pursuing a happy contained story. The final third is also guilty of pulling a character in directions which don't work for the person we know him to be. Still, like David Wain's earlier film, Role Models, Wanderlust takes a good idea and makes it look like hard work.
Also, Paul Judd's improvised sex pep talk into a mirror is not funny. Its not funny. Stop it.
