Splinterheads might suffice some late night on cable, but that's about it.
A shaggy comedy with more heart than heft.
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.
It's another tale of an overgrown kid accepted for his sweet, stammering self and nurtured out of his cocoon.
Amiable and proficient, this indie romantic comedy is never more or less than reliable.
The leads have no chemistry; the supporting cast of carnies and eccentrics is bland; the staging is dull; not a single gag lands; and Justin and Galaxy's one get-to-know-you conversation is never heard because it's buried in a road trip music montage.
Amusing, lively and imaginative with terrific, crisp cinematography, but it's often too cartoonish, convoluted, juvenile and low on laughs.
Boasts loads of playful characters, kooky conversations and gorgeous visuals in the suburban wilds to spare. Not to mention the reputed oldest man in the world, Frankie Faison as unlikely boy toy, and a crazed cop with the pathological hots for Mom.
Despite positioning itself as a Napoleon Dynamite-style comedy about a spazzy social retard, Splinterheads seems to have misplaced most of its jokes.
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.

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."
