(7-Very Good Film)

Appealing. Smart. Winning.

After his father gets demoted, James Brennan (Eisenberg) is forced to forgo his post-college graduation trip to Europe and instead work a menial job at a local amusement park before heading off to graduate school. There, he meets Joel (Starr), a kindred spirit of sorts, Mike Connell (Reynolds), the super-cool musician/maintenance worker, and Em (Stewart), a troubled girl he quickly falls for. Sweet, relatable comedy after the hilarious but outlandish Superbad for director Greg Mottola. The leads and supporting actors are all well cast and authentic in their roles.
