Hilarious without being too cliché.
9 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Excellent. The plot had some unique qualities. The humour is that typical late teens/early twenties, some slapstick, some fantastic low-brow. I enjoyed Splinterheads quite a bit. I laughed out loud quite a few times, despite watching the movie alone.

I think what surprised me most was that the lesser known actors/actresses and those that have been out of the game for awhile (i.e. Lea Thompson) did a great job, as did Christopher McDonald. Thomas Middleditch is perfect for the role, and I look forward to seeing him more future projects.

Racheal Taylor also great as the object of Middleditch's interest. Eye candy, while playing the role of Galaxy well.

If you're looking for a fun date movie or a good laugh, this one is a great way to spend 90 minutes. If you can't enjoy this type of comedy, it's probably not your thing.
