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.
Fresh: Audiences expecting another dumb wallow will be startled, and I hope enlivened, by this movie's core of feeling.
Fresh: Like all films that strike a chord, you'll find yourself replaying your own memories as the credits roll on a comedy that fires the heart.
Fresh: It is a coming-of-age picture which seems not so different from any other but hits delightfully odd notes thanks to Mottola's terrifically smart script and a cast of mostly eager young actors.
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.
The film is great: subtle, honest, and a great coming of agre story. Kristen Stewart is very good and effortlessly plays a conflicted character.
It's one of my favorites it's a true love story for the average guy .... Love it
