Ryan Reynolds Discusses Adventureland
04.01.09 by BJSprecher
Adventureland, the upcoming dram-edy from writer/director Greg Mottola (Superbad), opens this Friday and the stars are out promoting the film in force. In this set of interview clips from Attack of the Show! on G4, Ryan Reynolds and Jesse Eisenberg talk about the “deeply personal” experience of making the film.
"You really do see the ugliest side of America when you're, you know, working in theme parks."
The story revolves around a college graduate’s summer job as a “carny” and aims for subtler humor and more nuanced performances than Superbad, for which Mottola is most famous.
"I genuinely think that it's, like, as authentic as a coming-of-age movie can be. It's autobiographical, so already it kind of starts from a place that's very sincere and real."
Adventureland also stars Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Bill Hader (Tropic Thunder) and Kristen Wiig. (Semi-Pro)
