Seriously, Adventureland is one of the funniest movies I've seen this year. Big call, I know but it has everything I look for in a movie. Quirky characters- tick, cute geek-chic boys-tick, teen angst-tick, laugh out loud line-tick! Not to mention its set in the 1980's -though cleverly done and v. subtle! I completely endorse this film, ha-ha!
It was directed by Greg Mottola who was behind Superbad which I thought that was pretty funny, too. I think it has a Freak and Geek flavour and it was funny to see a grown up 'Bill' (played by Martin Starr) in Adventureland, he is hilarious!
I also formed a little crush on the Jesse Eisenberg, too. He is my new Hollywood hottie! Tee hee! It had the most limited release and I can't figure out why, we had to trek to Readings to see but boy, was it worth it! Oh, it was so whimsical and nostalgic!
