    The enjoyable moments of Adventureland are quite enjoyable. Unfortunately, it isn't really enough to off-set my general frustration and anger towards the actions of certain characters during major parts of the movie.

    While there are funny moments in Adventureland, it's really basically a story that relies heavily on the viewer's connection with the main characters--there's no important non-relational plot to latch onto if a viewer's empathy with the characters backfire.

    Part of the problem is that we can see the…

    Based on Greg Mottola's life experiences, Adventureland is an emotionally honest comedy that provides you a good time to relax. There are a lot of clichés and other elements that could have easily turned the film into and unpleasent crap, but sometimes you need clichés in your life and the obsession for weed is not obnoxious at all as it sets the tone for the entire film.

    Jesse Eisenberg stars as James Brennan, who has just completed high school and…

    Die filmische Entsprechung eines "Malen-nach-Zahlen"-Bildes.
    Figuren so dünn das sie durchsichtig werden, ein paar bestenfalls nette Gags und die Story eine Montage von Klischees.

Da kann ich auch gleich nochmal "500 Days of Summer" oder "Garden State" gucken.

    Some directors you know what they are going to put out before they do. There are aesthetics in cinema that sometimes give away a director's idea just by seeing their name attached. Then you have Greg Mottola's Adventureland. A smart, crafty, and sometimes almost too real look at young love and the mistakes made in our early 20s. Mottola directed superbad in 2007 and in that film we saw the side of teenage despiration and need in the form of…

    Com personagens fantásticos, uma ótima história, Adventureland surpreende em todos os aspectos que um bom filme da sessão da tarde deve apresentar, pois com um enredo leve e divertido faz com que a vontade de vê-lo nunca acabe.

    The melancholy of this film would be later repeated in slightly more upbeat fashion in "The Way, Way Back." Both films are worth seeing for their casts of characters.

    Authentic dialogue, great performances, well-crafted characters, a precise feel to the 1980's, and terrific blend between comedy and drama make "Adventureland" an immensely entertaining film to watch.
