Why, you may ask, am I blogging about Jennifer Anniston doing yet another romantic comedy film?
For the simple reason that I like her.
Judd Apatow is producing the film ‘Wanderlust’ which co-stars Paul Rudd. The people behind ‘Role Models’ and ‘The State’ co-wrote the script with Rudd and it focuses on a couple who are tired on their modern lives and decide to join a commune to get back in touch with themselves and the world.
So far so “High-LARious” but for some reason I am very intrigued. This could be a rather insightful look at the modern age, and have a lot to say if handled less “slapstick” and more “biting satire”.
The fact that the writers did The State so many years ago leaves me with a slight hope that something wonderful could happen, that finally lets Anniston stretch a little bit.
