Here is the “Adventureland” plot description:

It’s the summer of 1987 and James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) – an uptight recent college graduate – can’t wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe.

But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) say they can no longer subsidize his trip, James has little choice but to take a lowly job at a local amusement park.

Forget about German beer, world-famous museums and cute French girls. James’ summer will now be populated by belligerent dads, stuffed pandas and screaming kids high on cotton candy.

Lucky for James, what should have been his worst summer ever turns into quite an adventure as he discovers love in the most unlikely place with his captivating co-worker, Em (Kristen Stewart), and learns to loosen up.

Greg Mottola – fresh off the hit film “Superbad” – is directing his script drawn from his own job-from-hell experience.

Ted Hope and Anne Carey of This is that corporation (“The Savages,” “Nothing is Private”) are producing along with Sidney Kimmel of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment. Executive producers are William Horberg and Bruce Toll.

80's Movie (and some playlist)

80’s movie… Top Gun, no doubt. I’m not sure what my entire playlist would be, but it would have to include The Outfield - Your Love and Flowerpot Men - Beat City.

Ultimate 80's movie

I’m going to say Wet Hot American Summer, because it’s set in the 80’s and it’s full of win.

If you really need a movie from the 80’s….Tim Burton’s Batman or Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
