Adventureland ★★½

Enjoyable if underwhelming nostalgia-filled coming-of-age romance that should not have been marketed as a comedy. The script and direction were capable, some of the characters interesting, but unfortunately there was little chemistry between the leads, which may owe something to the fact that Kristen Stewart is just plain terrible. She's like a silent film actress telegraphing her emotions with facial ticks and gyrations. There must be hundreds of capable actresses who could have really nailed the part. When will she go away?
