Movie: Adventureland

We saw Adventureland at the State Theater in Ann Arbor on Thursday night. It is sweet and funny and warm with fine acting and well-realized secondary characters. I particularly liked the crazy park owner and the Russian-literature-reading slacker friend. The whole interaction around local bombshell "Lisa P" rang very true to me as well - it reminded me of Linda Savage from high school, who changed her name to "Monique" when we reached 10th grade.

Recommended. A great date movie.
