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".

* LifeImitatesArt: Eerily so, and on several levels, with Em: [[spoiler:Kristen Stewart, like Em, was revealed to be having an affair with a married man (director Rupert Sanders) and some feminist blogs, like Brennan, pointed out that Stewart bore much of the criticism while Sanders (and other male celebrities who've been unfaithful) received much less backlash.]]

* AnachronismStew: A lot of the fashion looks more like it comes from TheNineties rather than TheEighties (with the salient exceptionn of the club scenes). Jesse Eisenberg's hair and mannerisms all but scream Millenial, and using slang terms like "weed" rather than "pot" or shortening "douchebag" to "douche" are at least somewhat questionable.

A good deal of this could have been averted, since the only real reason for this story to take place in 1987 is, presumably, the director's nostalgia factor (small, rural amusement parks like this do exist today, and even maintain a lot of the old prize games left over from days of yore), and the fact that much of the third act could have been easily resolved with a few text messages.

** The characters are also very fond of The Velvet Underground and Lou Reed in particular, but this is TruthinTelevision; people of all generations grow up listening to music from previous generations.

* BettyAndVeronica: In this case a double, perhaps triple case: Lisa P is Veronica, Em is Betty to James, while Connell is the Veronica to James' Betty for Em. You could also see Connell's wife as Veronica and Em as Betty for him.
