Written by Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub

With director Greg Mottola’s “Adventureland” getting ready to hit theaters April 3rd, I’ve been provided with some cool stuff to giveaway. I’ve been given a soundtrack, a limited t-shirt, and a mini poster signed by Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and director Greg Motolla. Since I’d rather not break up the set, all three items are going to go to one person.

But before getting to how you can win, some of you might not be familiar with “Adventureland”. Here’s the synopsis:

It’s the summer of 1987, and James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg), an uptightrecent college grad, can’t wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe.But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they canno longer subsidize his trip, James has little choice but to take alowly job at a local amusement park. Forget about German beer,world-famous museums and cute French girls-James’ summer will now bepopulated by belligerent dads, stuffed pandas, and screaming kids highon cotton candy. Lucky for James, what should have been his worstsummer ever turns into quite an adventure as he discovers love in themost unlikely place with his captivating co-worker Em (Kristen Stewart),and learns to loosen up.

The film stars Jesse Eisenberg (“The Squid and the Whale”), KristenStewart (“Twilight, “Into the Wild”), Ryan Reynolds (“Just Friends,””Van Wilder”), Martin Starr (“Knocked Up,” “Superbad”), and “SaturdayNight Live” cast members Kristen Wiig (“Knocked Up”) and Bill Hader(“Superbad,” “Tropic Thunder”). Greg Mottola, fresh off the hit film “Superbad,” is directing his scriptdrawn from his own job-from-hell experience.

For more info, here’s a review of the film and here’s a few movie clips.

And now you’re probably asking how can you win?
