So for now I have to skip through Advance to the Rear and Adventure, so we go to:

Adventureland-2009, Directed by Greg Mottola, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, and Ryan Reynolds

He says-  In 1987, a brainy (and virginal) college graduate (Eisenberg) plans a trip to Europe before attending grad school, but a change in family finances forces him to take a menial summer job at a run-down amusement park in his hometown of Pittsburgh.  Things take an interesting turn when he falls for a pretty coworker (Stewart).  Seriocomic coming-of-age tale boasts strong acting and moments of insight, but covers familiar territory and drags in several spots.  Mottolla also wrote the semiautobiographical script.  2 and a half stars.

I say-  Can you bite your lip, brood, be stuck between 2 guys,and twirl your hair?  Congratulations, you are Kristen Stewart in every role!  Can you be nerdy, an alcoholic, incredibly likable and yet oddly hateable at the same time?  Congratulations, you are Jesse Eisenberg in every role!  Can you be a douche?  Congratulations, you are Ryan Reynolds in every role!  Each of these actors played the same characters they play in every film in this movie.  Fun fact:  Kristen Stewart plays with her hair 55 times in this movie.  The movie itself was ok for a one time viewing, however, the last half of the movie is really tedious and hard to watch,  You know how the movie will end from the beginning, which really makes me lose interest.  2 stars.
