After getting the sack, New Yorker George (Paul Rudd) is forced to take a job with his obnoxious brother Rick (Ken Marino) in Atlanta, and drags wife Linda (Jennifer Aniston) to Georgia to begin a new life. It doesn't take long for the couple to reach the end of their tether with Rick and his inappropriate ramblings, and they impulsively decide to check out a secluded commune they'd encountered on their drive west.
Their new home is a haven of meditation and harmony headed up by bearded leader Seth (Justin Theroux), a guitar-playing lothario who soon has Linda in his thrall and George considerably irked.
The New Yorker discovers that the commune lives by its own rules and he will either have to adapt quickly, or risk losing the one thing that means most to him.
Rudd and Golden Globe winner Aniston make the perfect uncomfortable couple in this cheeky hippie comedy from the Judd Apatow laugh machine. It's a wonder they haven't starred together since 1998's The Object of My Affection (bar a brief time on Friends) as both put in a great turn here. The adventure is also a chance to spot the seeds of chemistry between Aniston and Theroux who, after hitting if off on set, became engaged this year.
