    The latest comedy from the Judd Apatow stable isn’t quite up to what the usual standards represent, but ‘Wanderlust’ is a sufficiently weird mix between cult filmmaker David Wain and the Apatow sensibility. It doesn’t hurt that the talented cast (led by Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston) is extremely game for what...
