While not a box office smash, this 2009 film received good reviews and gained a respectable fan following. Written and directed by Greg Mottola, who had previously directed ''{{Superbad}}'', ''Film/{{Adventureland}}'' attempts a more [[{{dramedy}} realistic approach]], rather than relying on [[RuleOfFunny outlandish hijinks]].

Creator/JesseEisenberg stars as Brennan, KristenStewart co-stars as his primary love interest Emily "Em" Lewin. RyanReynolds provides the RomanticFalseLead, one Mike Connell.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted: Brennan is not obsessed with losing his virginity. (Although he wouldn't ''mind''.) [[LampshadeHanging He actually complains about this attitude]].

* SpiritualSequel: It plays even better if you look at it as ''FreaksAndGeeks: TheMovie''. It's only got one actor in common, but the style is almost exactly the same.

Added DiffLines:

** And James ogling Em in a soaking shirt and swimsuit bottoms.


Added DiffLines:

** And again Em (perhaps to a lesser degree than Lisa, though). At least, James certainly [[RagingStiffie sees her that way]] in the pool.

** Also, there's a ride that's called The Flying Dutchman, inexplicably spelled "The Flighing Dutchman."

* ADegreeInUseless: Brennan tries to get a job in the beginning of the film, but no one hires him. He declares that his literature degree makes him "not even fit for manual labor". Joel majored in Russian literature and Slavic languages, and predicts that his careers include "cabby, hot dog vendor, marijuana delivery guy. The world is my oyster".
