Well...the theatrical run for Wanderlust is now done. It's been a crazy few years of ups and downs. Some wonderful reviews, amazing feedback, and some not so wonderful reviews, and disappointing box office. All in all though it's been a journey I wouldn't trade for anything, and I'm extremely proud of this movie.
And still to come is the DVD & Blu-Ray June 19th!
This DVD is anything but an afterthought. In addition to the theatrical feature in stunning HD, we have put together a boatload of fun extras. The most interesting one is what we are calling the "Bizzaro Cut" of the movie. This is not a "director's cut" where some scenes are added back or tweaked. It's an entirely different version of the movie, filled with alternate jokes, lines, scenes to the point where there is almost no material from the original theatrical cut. I'm curious to hear what people think of this - it's only on the Blu-Ray, not the regular DVD. And I definitely recommend you watch the "real" movie before diving into the Bizzaro!
Also included is "Penis Envy" - a mockumentary on Joe Lo Truglio's experience wearing a prosthetic penis for his role in the film.
AND a special only-on-DVD episode of Wainy Days where I go into the fictional world of Wanderlust's Elysium commune meet the various characters, have sex with them, and almost get killed.
If that's not enough, we have lots of other deleted, extended and alterenative scenes, gag reel, line-o-rama, behind the scenes documentary, Jordan Peele doing Obama, and of course the feature commentary with me, Ken Marino, Paul Rudd and many celebrity guests via the impressions of the incomparable Kevin Pollak!
If you ask me, this sounds like a must buy for Dads and Grads. You can pre-order at Amazon right now.
