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.
Probably one of the most boring movie I’ve ever watched. I know that a lot of qualified critics gave good notes to this film, but I nearly fell asleep. The dialogues were dull and there was no action at all. The characters kept talking and talking… The only thing I liked was the soundtrack that was pretty cool. It really disappointed me.
