When James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) has to cancel his dream summer vacation and make some money for grad school, the only job he can get is at Adventureland, a tacky amusement park where the games are rigged and the rides make you hurl.

My new favourite film. - Adventureland review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/08/2010

I was hardly optimistic when I added Adventureland to my list. Kristen Stewart was low in my opinion (due to a certain film about a certain sparkly vampire) however her performance was pretty good and changed my opinions about her. I would recommend this film to fans of Juno or Nick, Norahs Playlist, 500 days of summer or Garden State. Adventureland can be serious and funny at the same time with hilarious moments placed nicely in between a brilliant plot. I was laughing out loud numerous times with clever little moments of humour especially the moment where Munch (Barret Hackney) tries to impress Em (Kristen Stewart) with his drum skills and she's less than impressed. The plot of the film perfectly sums up the struggles of an under-confident teenage male (struggles which I'm overly familiar with). The music of the film perfectly complements the theme and story of the film. In all this film went beyond all expectations I loved it and im off out to buy the DVD so I can keep it. It definetly lives up to the standard of Juno or Nick and Norah's playlist as the plots just as clever and the music just as catchy.

Fine Indie Rites of Passage Comedy. - Adventureland review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
23/09/2014

Entertaining and likable rerun of that American teen perennial: the freedom of the last summer before going to college and the pursuit of the elusive perfect girl. This one is set in a dilapidated and comically failing amusement park where Jesse Eisenberg wonders what it all means.
