    Synopsis


    Adventureland
    Inspired by writer/director Greg Mottola's own true-life job-from-hell experience, Adventureland stars The Education of Charlie Banks' Jesse Eisenberg as an uptight recent college graduate who discovers that he'll have to get a degrading minimum-wage job at a local amusement park instead of spending his summer drinking German beer, visiting world-class museums, and flirting with cute French girls. It's the summer of 1987, and James Brennan (Eisenberg) has just graduated from college. James is all set to embark on his dream tour of Europe when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) suddenly announce that they won't be able to subsidize the trip. Now the only things James has to look forward to this summer are sugar-fueled children, belligerent dads, and an endless parade of giant stuffed animals. When James strikes up a relationship with captivating co-worker Em (Kristen Stewart), however, he finally starts to loosen up. Suddenly, the worst summer ever doesn't seem quite so bad. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Lets just say that I now have a girl crush on Kristen Stewart. She plays the role of Em in a simple way, but she comes off so extremely cool and sexy and real that you completely believe her and love her. Jesse Eisenberg should not be compared to Michael Cera, they are in fact different people, and the only similarities I see are hair colour. Plus Jesse has been put down for trying to act like Michael when in fact Jesse's been around longer.. he just didn't star in some slightly overrated film that put him on the map soon enough. Anyway, this movie is great. If you liked Pretty in Pink, if you liked The Breakfast Club, if you liked Sixteen Candles, FINALLY.. here's something for you. Also, like someone else said, don't expect Superbad all over again. It's much more than that.. and still, IT'S HILARIOUS. I love you Kristin Wig! and Bill Hader!

      What a surprise this movie was. Yes it is from the director of superbad but don't go into this expecting another immature potty mouth flick, this is a much more mature, real look at teens and young adults and their struggles with finding themselves. The plot mainly takes place at a local amusement park. one amazing thing about this movie is its soundtrack. WOW, was it great. It has a good amount of chuckles here and there, but this is a serious movie, and it keeps your attention the whole way through. A great movie. 9/10
