News & Interviews for Splinterheads
Critic Reviews for Splinterheads
Splinterheads might suffice some late night on cable, but that's about it.
Attempts to compensate for its too-familiar romantic setup by defining its characters through idiosyncratic hobbies and traits.
Splinterheads, which aims to be a quirkier Adventureland, never rises above mildly amusing.
For a better courtship story set amongst the world of cotton candy and Tilt-a-Whirls, rent Adventureland instead.
Audience Reviews for Splinterheads
Cast: Thomas Middleditch, Rachael Taylor, Christopher McDonald, Lea Thompson, Dean Winters, Frankie Faison, Jason Rogel, Edmund Lyndeck, Jason Mantzoukas, Lennon Parham
Director: Brant Sersen
Summary: When a traveling carnival sets up shop in town, Justin (Thomas Middleditch) discovers the girl of his dreams, a shrewd carnie named Galaxy (Rachael Taylor). But to win over this sexy con artist's heart, Justin must get his life in order and deal with her scary boyfriend, Reggie (Dean Winters).
My Thoughts: "I should just stick to these odd little indie films. They always seem to do the romance and most of the other type of films right. Well in my opinion. This film didn't really focus on the romance, more on the quirky story being told. It has some very odd characters that are funny and make the movie that more interesting and entertaining. The movie was surprisingly funny coming from an unknown actor for me, that being Thomas Middleditch. I thought Justin and his side-kick Wayne Chung, were a pretty funny duo. Not bad acting for this little low budget film. Amazing Steve and Grandpa Albert Hale were also pretty funny in this. Just a great cast of odd, fun, crazy characters. Definitely worth a second watch."
Good movie based around the carny life. It's one of those offbeat romantic comedies where you basically know the ending after the first 30 minutes but it's a fun ride.
The acting is good and there are some interesting scenes. The girl is sexy as hell.
Fap rating: 7/10
"What are you diong drinking with carny folk?"-Justin Frost (Thomas Middleditch)
The kid is beyond dorky, making the blossoming relatationship with Galaxy harder to accept (he would have been great in HOT ROD). The last ten minutes go off the deep end, in RAISING ARIZONA fashion.
"Oh Susan, I've spent the last year waiting to die. Now, all of a sudden, I'm given an award for living!"-Albert Hale (Edmund Lyndeck)
