    Splinterheads, which aims to be a quirkier "Adventureland," never rises above mildly amusing.
  2. Splinterheads gains traction from an eclectic cast that knows how to work a line.
  3. Reviewed by: Nick Pinkerton
    Touching in its dorkiness.
  4. Reviewed by: Peter Debruge
    Writer-director Brant Sersen's amiable indie comedy -- even less edgy than Greg Mottola's theme-park-set "Adventureland" -- attempts to compensate for its too-familiar romantic setup by defining its characters through idiosyncratic hobbies and traits.
  5. Reviewed by: Andrew Grant
    Equal parts Hollywood meet-cute and quirky coming-of-age tale.
  6. Amiable and proficient, this indie romantic comedy is never more or less than reliable.
  7. 25
    Splinterheads might suffice some late night on cable, but that's about it.
  8. Reviewed by: Staff (Not credited)
    If you want genuine laughs and romance in a carnival setting, go rent "Adventureland."

    Certainly better than the critics average of 41 on here. Not a bad movie to watch on a date because it's all in good fun. And I didn't know about the incredible game of geocaching before watching this, so for that I thank you Splinterheads. Full Review »
