Adventureland movie review

I liked the story because it was relatable, everyone has had a lousy job like James, but it's mostly the people you meet that make it worthwhile. Some characters can't even see what's in front of their eyes.

Meanwhile, Em, realizes her feelings for James, and James vice versa. For the most part, Adventureland does not wallow in '80s nostalgia, although "Rock Me Amadeus" becomes an anthem of sorts.

Movie review: Adventureland

There are no appreciable politics. Mostly, "Adventureland" is a heartfelt, slightly melancholy slice of life.

Adventureland (2009)

Stewart's Adventureland movie review has a nightmare home lifebut she's an active contributor to that nightmare. Production values are a little sketchy and that killer soundtrack makes it a bit hard to hear the dialogue at some times. Adventureland is a comedy with a wonderful mix of all types of humor and very well blended with romance and drama that strikes a cord we should all see more of.

Big Picture Big Sound

As a sensibility, "indie" shouldn't be confused with the riskier, thornier ambitions of American independent cinema, which more than ever is being elbowed to outer regions of the distribution and exhibition process by vanishing studios, yes, but also by trendy niche marketing.

Young men talk about one of them being sexually inexperienced in several scenes. It's a damn fine movie, period. James's awkwardness and ambivalence informs the rest of the movie's tone.

Parent reviews for Adventureland

He goes so far as to call the film "an undead Adventureland—a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for the Facebook generation". Yet so much of it is so deadpan and self-consciously arch; it lazily coasts the surface of nostalgia.

A boy picks his nose. The two gradually become friends, but when James confesses his feelings to Em, she is reluctant due to the complications in her life. Mottola elects to present Connell not as the biggest asshole alive but as a man whose rampant infidelity is counterbalanced by positive traits.

Even comedic actors Bill Hedar and Kristen Wiig are carefully reined in.Adventureland videos - Watch Adventureland movies, videos, trailers, clips, cast interviews and more at Alternate Versions As far as the unrated cut goes, the 'unrated' portions mostly concern the testicles and vagina shots near the end of the movie that had to be changed for the MPAA.

· At times the movie wants to get by on looks alone, and the ending is as inevitable as an arranged marriage. Fortunately, there are glimpses of life's real roller coasters outside Adventureland.

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.
