So this is a good comedy, as bad as it can be and still be good, but good.

Wanderlust is an agreeable comedy that peters out halfway through.

This was totally the worst movie by Jennifer Anniston we have seen. We went on Sunday evening and only 15 people inluding us were in the theater. We did not hear anyone laughing at all during the...
