ADVENTURELAND.

DVD_Adventureland[DVD: Miramax Films – 2009 – 102 mins +bonus features]. “…A smart, witty comedy we can all relate to. When James Brennan has to cancel his dream summer vacation and make some money for grad school. The only job he can get is at Adventureland, a tacky amusement park where the games are rigged and the rides make you hurl. But it’s where he meets Em, and his roller coaster ride to nowhere turns into the best summer ever…” Bonus Features include: Deleted Scenes; The Making of Adventureland; and Feature Commentary. ANDY SHINE SAYS: Adventureland was filmed largely at wonderfully idyllic Kennywood Amusement Park (West Mifflin, Pennsylvania). However, even this marvellous setting fails to elevate the film above mediocre. This was a crude waste of my time. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair.
