VERDICT – 1/5

 

 


PROS –
1) A young graduate with a literature degree starts to work part-time at a local amusement park. The premise is a workplace rom-com.
2) The 1980s soundtrack is the only good thing about this movie.

 

 


CONS –
1) A promising workplace comedy wasted by the director of Superbad (2007). All the boring and sappy sub-plot were highlighted while the most colorful characters played by Kristen Wiig & Bill Hader were sidelined.
2) A pretentious movie without anything new to offer.

 

 


QUOTE –

Sue : Oh wow, that’s pretty interesting. What career track is that?
Joel: Cabby, hot dog vendor, marijuana delivery guy. The world is my oyster.
