Adventureland is a charming, sweet, and pleasantly predictably coming-of-age story set in the olden days of 1987. Even though there is nothing particularly interesting here, the mood, the dialogue, the acting, the locale, all hit the right note, making it thoroughly watchable, emotionally accessible. There is enough wit and intelligence in the script and the performances that it is not sickly sweet or harshly ironic, and I didn't feel like I wasted my time at all.
