5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Adventure Oct. 22 2009
Finally! -- a movie to come out of the extended Apatow family that I can actually watch with my own family! Greg Mottola, who directed the hilarious Superbad, dug deep into his own teenage years for this and you can tell. While the humour is rooted in a similar place as Superbad (one character likes to pee on windows and punch people in the groin), this is much more a heartfelt movie than a comedy.

It is the summer of 1987. James (Jesse Eisenberg) is about to leave for Europe, before heading off to New York in the fall. However, family money problems have prevented the trip, and worse, he needs to get a summer job to pay for New York. Adventureland, a typical 80's amusement park, is the only place who'll hire him. His best friend leaves him a bag of joints to get him through the summer, and James is on his own.

Having gone to amusement parks in the summer of 1987 myself, I was impressed with how authentic Adventureland is. Everything from the cheesey "games games games" T-shirts, to the music, to Bill Hader's moustache (which is almost a character unto itself), and the rides really brought back memories. I am certain that my own local park had the "Music Express" ride, I can recall it very clearly. However, I have to confess that I didn't know anybody who was into Lou Reed back in 1987 myself, but I was in a slightly younger age group than these characters. I sure did remember Poison and Judas Priest. ("Breaking The Law" is the soundtrack to a very funny scene involving a chase through the park over a game that was fixed so it couldn't be won.) In addition, check out Paige Howard's hair. That hair is authentic. I know, because my sister has photos from the era to prove it.

A confused mish mash of characters working at an amusement park, none of whom seem real. A bit of pompous, self-righteous liberalism when lead actress Kristin Stewart reacts angrily when a Christian girl (Catholic I think) refuses to date a boy because he is Jewish. Fact is, this situation could arise as easily among Orthodox Jewish parents and especially among Muslims and a few other religions. The whole point of the film seems to be that people who work at an amusement park do so because they can't or are too lazy to find work elsewhere.

There's nothing about this movie I don't like, great work by both Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg! Kristin Wiig is hilarious as usual too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventureland is worth it Oct. 9 2009
This is a teen movie, but it's not what you would expect from a standard teen movie. It's a coming of age story and it's the best out there. The movie is honest. The characters are well played with an awesome breakout role for Jesse Eisenberg. It's a funny movie with a truly authentic core that will make you feel good and throw you back to the 80s. I highly recommend this, even if teen movies are not usually your thing.
