dude graduates from college with plans of a european summer trip, and graduate school at columbia, but his parents take back their promise because they have no money. he gets a job at a local amusement park to pay for grad school, back when a shitty minimum wage summer job could pay for a semester at an ivy league school. (that was sarcasm if you didn't pick up on that) anyway, falls for a chick who is unhappy and having intercourse with the too cool for school married janitor guy.
eh. moster thought he wanted to see this. i insist he should appreciate my viewing it without him. most of the cast is totally unredeemable. jerky, self involved butt faces. i liked the friend who smoked from a pipe, and the cheapo owners of the amusement park were funny at times, but that was about it. jesse eisenberg was really annoying and yet two chicks were interested in him? interested as in not a relationship, just dating, maybe sleeping together......maybe. down the road. it seemed as though there was a lot under the surface backgrounds that were never elaborated on like jesse eisenberg's dad's employment situation, and drinking. i think it was supposed to take place in the 80's, but that was never made clear. maybe everybody was in the midst of the economic troubles of the period, but that was never made clear. eh. ultimately a muddy relationship drama with a few funny lines. bleh.
