Wondering why times are missing?


The makers of Superbad return with this funny but glum coming-of-age story set in the '80s. Having graduated high school, James (Jessie Eisenberg, The Squid and the Whale) dreams of traveling Europe for the summer. A sudden reversal of economic fortune, however, lands him a summer job at a crappy local amusement park. While slaving alongside an assortment of life's losers (Martin Starr and Ryan Reynolds among them), James manages to meet and fall in love with a cute, smart girl (Kristen Stewart, hot off Twilight). The film's depiction of life at a second-rate amusement park feels accurate, but the depressing, lowly characters suck a lot of the fun out of this one. 107 minutes R.
