    An attempt at a nostalgic coming-of-age story. I quite like Jesse Eisenberg, although I know he's not everyone's cup of tea. On the other hand, Kristen Stewart was hard to watch at times - lip biting at every available opportunity.

    This film didn't charm me. The conclusion was just a ball of cliché and felt kind of sour; as if at then end of the day it all boiled down to Eisenberg's character getting laid.

    Soundtrack was cool though.

    To me there’s nothing that screams ‘summer movie’ like Jesse Eisenberg working in an amusement park. Jesse’s penchant for off-beat, dry-humoured characters, most definitely does not transcend this movie. His character James Brennan, a college graduate hoping to visit Europe during the summer and attend Journalism school in the fall, finds himself a lil short on the old $$$$$ and gets himself a shitty summer job at Adventureland, an amusement park in his hometown of Pittsburgh (so all in all,…

    There's kind of a John Hughes vibe (not in the Baby's Day Out sense, happily) to this coming of age tale, much of which comes from having more heart and fewer wacky situations than most such films these days. Eisenberg and Steward are solid, and Ryan Reynolds contributes a nice slightly melancholy supporting turn as an older, sadder Van Wilder, though once again Kristen Wiig offers an affable presence without ever actually crossing the line into funny.

    Something about this film makes it continually re-watchable.. I never seem to be able to get tired of it.
    The soundtrack is also fantastic.

    Pretty decent and I loved the cast but I wasn't that impressed. I liked how the setting was at a theme park and the soundtrack was amazing (lou reed!)

    I really like this film. I've seen it a few times now and although I guess it's not anything massively groundbreaking, it resonates with me, the characters are likeable and relatable and doesn't feel like it's trying too hard (which a lot of these coming-of-age types films do). Jesse Eisenberg is fantastic, as usual, and the rest of the cast are quite good as well. There's some laughs, some genuine emotion and lots of nostalgia and charm - enough to almost make you want to go back to that awful summer job (...but not quite).

    Every year, for three short months, Pittsburgh enjoys a little sunshine and warmth. The public pools fill up with eager swimmers, stroller pushers occupy the neighborhood parks, and prostrate students crowd the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial yard like content sea lions on a beach. Then there’s Kennywood, the quaint, historic amusement park where local families flock to gorge on Potato Patch fries and suffer some welcome whiplash on the Exterminator. Sure, every place in America has a similar attraction (in…
