movies of 2010: Adventureland


rolled up on the LoveFilm rental list, this gentle comedy/romance/coming-of-age movie was a pleasant, if untaxing way of passing a couple of hours. And it’s got her from those Twilight movies in it.

Trouble is, John Hughes would have done it better, and Ally Sheedy would have been outstanding in it. Though Kristen Stewart does angsty/cute quite well, I must admit.

As it is, it’s incredibly formulaic and predictable, but has some nice moments, and you do actually end up caring what happens to these people. Great soundtrack too. I give it seven Molly Ringwalds out of ten.
