Adventureland is an upcoming romantic dramedy movie directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad) and features Twilight star Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland).

Also starring in Adventureland are Martin Starr (Knocked Up), Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig (Knocked Up) and Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, X-Men Evolution: Wolverine). The theme park from the movie is based on the Farmingdale, New York amusement park Adventureland where Mottola worked in the 1980s.

Synopsis: It’s the summer of 1987, and James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg), an uptight recent college grad, can’t wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe. But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they can no longer subsidize his trip, James has little choice but to take a lowly job at a local amusement park. Forget about German beer, world-famous museums and cute French girls-James’ summer will now be populated by belligerent dads, stuffed pandas, and screaming kids high on cotton candy. Lucky for James, what should have been his worst summer ever turns into quite an adventure as he discovers love in the most unlikely place with his captivating co-worker Em (Kristen Stewart), and learns to loosen up.

Adventureland has received critical praise with an above-average 88% rating on the review aggregator site RottenTomatoes.

Louise Keller from Urban Cinefile said:

Greg Mottola’s auto-biographical coming of age story has plenty of heart and although the elements of a first-love plot with all its complications are not new, the script is a good one with detailed, compelling characterisations.

Dan LyByger of eFilmCritic.com said:

“There are still puke jokes in ‘Adventureland’ as there were in ‘Superbad,’ but it’s nice to see that Mottola can help viewers get in touch with another body function, the beat of a heart. “

Linda Cook of Quad City Times said:

“Perfectly written, perfectly cast and perfectly brilliant, ‘Adventureland’ is as good as it gets.”

Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said:

“With a cast that believed in one another and a writer-director who believed he didn’t have to follow up Superbad with SuperEvenBadder, Adventureland is the kind of adventure we could all use more of.”

Devin Faraci of CHUD said:

“ADVENTURELAND is loving towards its characters but also brutally honest about them. sweet and funny and real, and definitely one of the best coming of age movies in years, if not ever.”
