Comedy
Paul Rudd plays George, a politely frustrated Wall Street worker living in a microscopic Manhattan apartment with his documentarian wife, Linda (a funny Jennifer Aniston). When George loses his job, and Linda’s penguin-cancer documentary is passed over by HBO, they wind up at a free-sex commune presided over by a strange Christ-like figure (Justin Theroux). The film is directed and co-written by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models), and that’s a good thing, because Rudd has had some of his best screen moments under Wain’s direction. There are a few scenes here that are among Rudd’s best, including a moment when he practices sex talk in a mirror. The movie is not Wain’s best, but Rudd and company (including many members of The State) make it funny.
