Twilight haters, don't worry, K-Stew can act!

"Well, you know, my dad's a lawyer. It's been his life-long dream for his daughter to work at Adventureland."

Greg Motolla's Adventureland is one of those teen-comedies that actually has heart to it. There are so many elements here we've seen before in other films (nerdy hero, love triangle, weed), but Mottola, who directed the hilarious Superbad and the recent sci-fi homage, Paul, ... read more

Though it doesn't happen very often, every once in a while a delightfully great movie shows up in multiplexes at a surprisingly early moment in the year (in this case, the usually mediocre month of April). Adventureland defies all of the expectations one has of the average "summer romance" movie, and in doing so, gives its audience an incredible gift: a sharp, honest and realistic drama of the hig... read more

Adventureland is a sensitive dramedy, more drama than comedy, that details the summer in college where you worked a crappy minimum wage job and had your first taste of a real adult relationship. The tone might waver from time to time, the scenes with Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are humorous but almost too goofy, but the great performances by Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart make the movie enjoy... read more

Description: It’s the summer of 1987, and James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg), an uptight recent college grad, can’t wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe. But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they can no longer subsidize his trip, James has little choice but to take a lowly job at a local amusement park. Forget about German beer, world-famous museums and cute French girls-James’ summer will now be populated by belligerent dads, stuffed pandas, and screaming kids high on cotton candy. Lucky for James, what should have been his worst summer ever turns into quite an adventure as he discovers love in the most unl ... (more)

ficticia posted a review 2 years, 5 months ago

“This was the worst movie I've seen in a really long time. To be set in the 80's has no meaning at all (except, maybe, so the director can use his favourite songs). I really don't care about his teenager memories.” read more

When IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes disagree (65 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes: 89% IMDb: 7.0 Difference- 19 Quite often its the stars that let films down to an audience. Critics can't afford to be that selective. But with Kristen Stewart's popularity dying from the Twilight series, it might explain her lack of appeal in the minds of imdb voters. I don't mind her myself though. "

“"Well, you know, my dad's a lawyer. It's been his life-long dream for his daughter to work at Adventureland."

Greg Motolla's Adventureland is one of those teen-comedies that actually has heart to it. There are so many elements here we've seen before in other films (nerdy hero, love triangle, weed), but Mottola, who directed the hilarious Superbad and the recent sci-fi homage, Paul, adds a certain honesty and sweetness to the subject matter. This is a film about a teenager's world, and it's not so bright and happy as many would expect. There is pain in Adventureland, and that's one of the film's most strongest assets. It plays on the emotions teenagers go through, and that very element makes it a winner in my eyes.
