Same old summer love movie. This time its with Jesse Eisenberg trying to get in old Kristin Stewart's pants. Shouldn't have been as hard as he made it out to be. Overall good watch. Very little re-watch material.

A newly graduate, James, found a summer job on theme park called "Adventureland" where he meets new friends, cool ones, nice ones, and those who have issues with each other.

The rest could've gone downhill with slapstick and gross-out gags that plagued 90's raunch comedies. But from experience, Greg Motolla knows you can get a laugh from the real. He chooses to create laughs from situations that every awkward teenager goes through and as a result, it makes the moments more endearing.
The rest of the cast is also well placed, including top notch performances from Kristen Stewart (fresh off of "Twilight" fame), Ryan Reynolds, Bill …
