I wanted to tap something out about Greg Mottola‘s Adventureland (Miramax, April 3), but I have to be at a 6 pm screening of Paris 36. I rather liked Mottola’s film for many reasons, but the fact that it’s a settled, unforced and proportionately buyable ’80s relationship drama is definitely one. I love teen flicks that are psychologically layered, unextreme, unbawdy and raggedy. And Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart have all the right stuff. They do nicely by themselves and the film. Anyone who trashes this movie deals with me. I’ll write more about this later.
