Adventureland: 4/5

For all of my readers out there with a spec script for a rom-com, this is a key ingredient you must have in your script:
[Y]ou can totally see why James would subject himself to the things that he does in pursuit of Stewart’s Em.
There should be reasons for Guy and Girl to get together.  Don't expect your audience to just buy into the old syllogism:

+ Guy is Lead Actor
+ Girl is Lead Actress
> Guy and Girl should fall in love

Life doesn't work that way, and neither should your plot.
