Wanderlust (2012)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable movie. George (Paul Rudd) and Linda (Jennifer Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple living in a studio apartment. After George is laid off from his job due to downsizing and Linda is unable to sell her vulgar nature documentary to HBO, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George's annoying, but well-off brother in Atlanta. On the drive there they seek out a place to stay for the night and stumble upon Elysium, a hippie commune populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things.

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston co-starred together in 18 episodes of the sitcom Friends. The two also co-starred with Alan Alda in the 1998 comedy The Object of My Affection. Filming took place in a number of places in Georgia: the Gwinnett Diner in Lawrenceville (which was also used for a scene in the film Road Trip); a subdivision called Miramonte Way off Ozora Road in the Lawrenceville, Georgia area; and in Habersham County, off of New Liberty Road.
