Welcome to Adventureland, where the worst job imaginable is about to inadvertently turn into the summer that changes everything. Fresh on the heels of directing the runaway hit Superbad, writer-director Greg Mottola returns with a hilariously human, semi-autobiographical comedy about an uptight, overeducated young man whose lowly new Career leads to the wildest ride of his life - a journey through puking kids, angst-filled co-workers and a dizzying-making romantic triangle - all the way to facing his own future with guts and optimism.

Good price, but film was woeful.
It was marketed as another Superbad, but a comedy it is not.

I thought Superbad was terrible so anything marketed as the next one isn't getting my cash.

It is nothing like Superbad but it is an enjoyable film, more of a 'coming of age' movie set in the 80's.

From imdb

In 1987, James Brennan's dreams of a summer European tour before studying … 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.

Ditto, it's no Superbad, but actually quite a good Romantic Comedy.
Kristen Stewart is great in the lead female role and doesn't nervously flutter her eyelids like she does in the Twilight films!
