Oh please! Save your money, because every shot in this film that is even remotely entertaining is in the trailer. What a mess of a movie, and a total disappointment. You don't want to root for any of the characters, and the story is all over the place. If I hadn't been with others, I would have definitely walked out by the halfway mark, and I've only done that once before. YUCK!

With a keen affection for his own formative years, filmmaker Greg Mottola has crafted a funny and spunky amusement Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Somehow the story of a young man's coming of age never gets old, at least when it is told with the kind of sweetness and intelligence Adventureland displays. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Thanks to an exceptionally deft touch, Mottola manages to capture the absurdity and anguish of young adulthood, while never sacrificing meaning on the altar of crude humor. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Mottola, who wrote and directed 1996's "The Daytrippers," crafts smart, witty dialogue. But the movie suffers in tone. While much of the story feels like a brainier John Hughes comedy, it veers into more dramatic terrain and loses focus. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Has the note-perfect melancholy of a classic young adult novel. Full Review
