Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wanderlust -- which stars Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd and was produced by Judd Apatow -- delivers a lot of the same kind of very edgy material for which Apatow's other crowd-pleasing films (including Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin) are known. There's frequent strong sexual content, full-frontal nudity (many characters are nudists), lots of strong language (including "f--k," "s--t," and many more), drinking, and drug use (pot). The jokes are raunchy, scatological, sex-charged, and plentiful.

Sexual Content

Nudists walk around naked; everything, including their genitalia, is visible (in one scene, a crowd of them even runs in slow motion). Couples freely discuss swapping partners; a man discovers that his wife has slept with someone else, and he, too, flirts with someone else's partner. Lots of jokes about sex, body parts, and affairs. Loving couples kiss and snuggle with each other; one duo is shown under the covers presumably after having had sex. Male news anchors make sexist jokes about a female colleague. A woman discusses a sex toy with her sister-in-law. A woman delivers her own baby in a birth scene.

Violence

Moments played for laughs include a fist fight between two men over a woman, who later joins the fracas. She also slaps her husband. A man pitches a fit in the middle of a family breakfast, throwing his plate on the floor and punching a cabinet. Later, his relative throws a plate, too.

Language

Very frequent strong language by most characters, including a child who says "f--k." Other words include "s--t," "ass," d--k," "p---y," "t-t," "hell," "ass," "oh my God," "goddamn," "screw" and more.

Social Behavior

Couples need to allow each other to grow in order for relationships to be successful -- but it's important to be respectful while doing so. Also, material possessions aren't everything. But neither is extremism just for the sake of extremism.

Consumerism

For a movie with a fairly anti-consumerist message, Wanderlust name-drops and displays labels a lot, including Apple MacBook, iPhone, Blackberry, Kinko's, Moet & Chandon, Embassy Suites, Wellbutrin, SkyMall, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of wine drinking and pot smoking, as well as a hallucination-inducing tea that's drunk as part of a "truth circle." Some discussions about what it's like to get high. A woman nurses margaritas and mimosas seemingly all day long to cope with her vacuous life and philandering husband.
