Trailer for David Wain’s ‘Wanderlust’ is One Big ‘The State’ Reunion on a Commune

By  · Published on November 3rd, 2011

Watching the trailer for Wanderlust – the new movie directed by Wet Hot American Summer director David Wain – makes me want to watch every episode of The State all over again. In short, I wanna dip my balls in it.

Starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston as rat-racers in New York who have to leave the race and find themselves learning the communal life, the trailer looks knock-down, drag-out hilarious. Some great gags from some truly disturbed/gifted comic minds are on display here.

Check it out for yourself, and see how many State alumni you can spot:

There’s Wain behind the camera of course, and there’s Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney, Ken Marino (trying to dip his balls into Aniston’s character), and with any luck, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon will make their way onto the screen as well.

At any rate, it’s good to see comedians from The State willing to work with someone from arch-nemesis 90s sketch show The Edge.
