    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.

    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.

    Splinterheads might suffice some late night on cable, but that's about it.

    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.

    If you want genuine laughs and romance in a carnival setting, go rent "Adventureland."

    Touching in its dorkiness.

    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 »
