(USA Today)   The movie "Wanderlust" does not do the authentic hippy justice and instead reduces its hippies to caricature, stereotype, and near parody. C'mon, Hollywood, our hippies deserve better than this   (usatoday.com ) divider line

So Aniston doesn't make with the boobies?

Wait...You mean to tell me that a Hollywood film makes use of archetypal, over-simplified character tropes in order to convey immediately-understandable story elements to the audience...?!?

This is an outrage. I'm writing my Congressman.

OK, WTF? A movie about 2012 hippies? Who the heck would greenlight this lame concept?

Obvious Tag still frolicking in the nude or something?

I thought it would suck until I realized it was directed by the guy who did Wet Hot American Summer, The State, Stella, etc. Now I'm thinking it might be good.

I like Paul Rudd, but not that much.

Mugato: So Aniston doesn't make with the boobies?


Rumor is that they shot video of her topless for the movie, but then she requested that it be pixelated. However her publicist denies that she requested the pixelation. So, either way, Jen will be naked on the internet soon enough from pirated footage or some one in the studio keeping a backup copy and leaking it.

Jennifer Aniston was born in 1969. Too young to be a current day hippie. And a reference to March of the Penguins makes the concept implausible.

I never understood the hesitation of so many actresses to do nude scenes. Some of the best actresses have gotten naked on film, repeatedly, and it hasn't negatively impacted their careers in the least.

Indeed. Kate Winslet would like a word(and hopefully much more) with JA.

is aniston capable of being in a movie that isnt a rom-com, or is her acting range is really that pathetically shallow?

Saw the trailer for this the other day and it seemed a bit forced. Like the people in it were imitating hippies but who never had encountered a living one before.

I saw the flick. Has a lot of genuine laughs. It explores the highs and lows of several ways to live (City life, suburban life, and off the grid). And each is given a good ribbing. Go see it, it's very relatable.

What's the verdict on Aniston's boobs? Do ya see 'em or not?

No such thing as a non-stereotypical hippy. They are all the same. Take a bath and shut up.

I agree. Even in the trailers you can see that the characterizations are amateurish, broad brush, and shallow. The only thing missing was the chick with long blonde hair saying "Like, wow, man. "

If you want to REALLY caricature hippies, look no further than Archie Comics, who were making hippies look dreadful before making hippies looking dreadful was cool.

Ha!

Back at my Grandparents' house there used to be a bunch of old Archie comics from the early 70s, so each issue was full of hippies.

Yeah -- i know hippies -- they are greasy and promiscuous and dirty. The real hippies are truely gross people. They are unaware of the existence of "soap" and "acting like a responsible adult".

Why would the GOP care about hippies? HIPPIES DONT VOTE!!! That would require giving in to societies game. Dont you know? The votes are all designed to keep the powerful powerful maaaaaaaan.....

Peaceniks are mellow easy going folk who like celebrating some aspects of hippy culture. But they are not hippies -- they have regular jobs and wear regular clothing and are much closer to hipsters than hippies.

Dont confuse peaceniks and hippies -- They look very similar but they act very different.

She doesn't-on account of unnecessary pixelation.

Hippies want someone else to do the work, pay the bills, buy the food so they can get high and talk about how they are "totally for love peace and changing the world (to socialism). Getting a job and actually being productive is "caving in to the man". Just think what this country would be like if everyone had actually followed the hippie/yippie beliefs back in the 1960's.

/We would all be speaking Russian and living like the East German Proletariat. There is a reason they hauled ass to West Germany once the Berlin Wall fell.
//The hard core hippies would have been in forced labor camps.
///Peace, love, nonviolence and being stoned 24/7 are great until your militaristic enemies decide to attack. Then reality sets in.

I guess that's one way to keep the scum out of Austin.
