Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
In 1987, James Brennan's dreams of a summer European tour before studying at an Ivy League school in New York City are ruined after his parents have a severe career setback. As a result, James must get a summer job to cover his upcoming expenses at the decrepit local amusement park, Adventureland, where he falls in love with a witty co-worker, Emily Lewin. In that bizarrely shady workplace, the young carnies have unforgettable and painful learning experiences about life, love and trust while James discovers what he truly values.
Pretty good film. Not usually romantic comedy, although, it has it's parts. And that's what's boring about it. Romantic comedies, in general. They're all the same.
1. They are together
2. They break up
3. Together again
Same, it repeats over and over again.
But film, in general, is good.
