About the Movie

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. But it's where he meets Em (Kristen Stewart) and his roller coaster ride to nowhere turns into the best summer ever. Filled with a carnival of colorful characters and set to a killer soundtrack, Adventureland is the kind of adventure we could all use more of!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The story is semi-autobiographical, but has a gentler touch than his prior work on Superbad, and certainly relies less on slapstick episodes. – David Denby, New Yorker, Apr 8, 2009

Fresh: Without recourse to frilly cuffs or a montage to A Flock Of Seagulls' greatest hit, it plays the '80s card for something heartfelt. – Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine, Jan 4, 2010

Fresh: As a sweet-natured character comedy - and a subtle exercise in generic boundary-pushing - this is a real charmer. – Tom Huddleston, Time Out, Jun 27, 2012

Fresh: Its gentle charm and effortless eloquence personified by its winning lead, Adventureland is only marred by a rote final reel. – Richard Luck, Film4, Jun 24, 2010

A Classic

This is one of those movies that makes you feel like you're a part of it and when its over you just wanna watch it again because you don't want it to be over. The acting was great and Kristen did a great job, not like in Twilight, and everyone else was great. It was hilarious! and the drama was really good too but it was hilarious. Every character is unique and they are fun to watch. Every single part of this movie makes you wanna be there. Buy it, you will love it.

Great movie

The film is great: subtle, honest, and a great coming of agre story. Kristen Stewart is very good and effortlessly plays a conflicted character.

Love it

It's one of my favorites it's a true love story for the average guy .... Love it
