Here is the synopsis for “Wanderlust”:

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in “Wanderlust”: a raucous comedy from director David Wain (“Role Models”) and producer Judd Apatow (“Knocked Up”) about a couple who leaves the pressures of the big city and joins a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself.

George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed-out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George’s awful brother in Atlanta.

On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium: an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can’t buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them. Clothes? Only if you want them. Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?

The movie trailer for “Wanderlust” can be watched now below.

No, but I’d probably bore them anyway. Although I imagine I’d learn how to play guitar finally.

I’m not really a fan of

I’m not really a fan of the commune concept, even though the nudist philosophy has always intrigued me. I don’t think I could deal with the “no career” part of it, as mine probably defines me more than it should.

I would totally live there. I think it would be so relaxing and free to live in a place where clothing is optional. I think that’s the natural and healthy way to live!

Would you live in the freewheeling community of Elysium?

No, not at this stage of my life! I need my own space and the stimulation of an urban environment.

I don't think so

It may be fun and interesting for a little while but I need a career and money.

No way. But the film sounds interesting!

Yes! I would live in the freewheeling community of Elysium. Because everybody is free with there feelings and it seems like almost anything goes there too.

No thanks...

I don’t think I could live in a commune like Elysium. I like the hustle & bustle and culture of city life too much to lounge around all day. The movie looks pretty funny, though!

Would I live in a freewheeling community such as Elysium?

Why Yes! Where do you think they got the story, or was that in Time Magazine? Who can be sure.
