#253: Adventureland / Bonnie and Clyde / Top 5 'Bad Job' Movies
Step right up, come one, come all, ladies and gentlemen, everybody's a winner when they listen to Filmspotting! Just turn the dial on that iPod for your chance to hear a review of Greg Mottola's ("Superbad) new comedy "Adventureland," starring Jesse Eisenberg ("The Squid and the Whale") as a recent college grad stuck manning a games booth at his local low-rent amusement park for a summer. Will the boys fall for the small coming-of-age film's charms, or find its brand of humor a true House of Horrors? As an added bonus round, find out which one of your Filmspotting sideshow freaks actually worked in an amusement park called Adventureland! Then try your hand at the New Hollywood rifle range: riddle Bonnie and Clyde with 56 bullets or more and walk home with a replica of Gene Hackman's comb-over and your very own Filmspotting review of the Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway gangster classic. But don't stop there! Take a left at the Sno-cone machine and try your luck at Adam and Matty's Top 5 Challenge! Match four out of five of Filmspotting's Top 5 Bad Job Movies and win a date with Matty! Match five out of five and win the requisite restraining order you'll need after dating Matty!
