Ain't It Cool News (


Irish Rican here - SPLINTERHEADS is coming to DVD shelves everywhere February 16th and AICN is giving three copies to our readers!!! For those who aren't in the know, here is a synopsis of the film: Called “Easily one the best films of the year,” by National Lampoon, SPLINTERHEADS brings home the insane humor of such slacker comedies as Adventureland and Superbad. Starring Brat-packer Lea Thompson (SpaceCamp!) and Rachael Taylor (Man-Thing!), SPLINTERHEADS launches the comedic talents of Thomas Middleton as Justin Frost, a twenty-something slacker who has decided that his "thing" is that he has no "thing" at all. When a small-time carnival rolls into town, he meets Galaxy, a gorgeous con artist who has more "things" going for her than anyone he has ever met. When Galaxy takes Justin on a geocaching adventure, a GPS based activity that is part hike and part treasure hunt, he quickly falls for her. Complicating matters are his mom's (Thompson) floundering relationship with a lovesick local cop (Christopher McDonald - Breakin'!) and Galaxy's insanely jealous boyfriend Reggie (Dean Winters - 30 Rock's Beeper King!). In order to win her over he's going to need to step up his game, and maybe even figure out what his "thing" really is. From what I've heard about the film it is actually a great light-hearted romantic flick mixed with some crazy comedy. 30 Rock fans will also be pleased to see that John Lutz (who plays J.D. Lutz on that show) appears in the film as well. AICN is pleased to be able to give away three copies of Splinterheads. If you'd like to win one, send an e-mail to and your postal address by midnight eastern time 2/18/10.

    Not Sure About This "Thing"

    by Cinemanimetal

    National Lampoon praising something doesn't have any meaning to me. I mean look at all the crap that carries their name. I do appreciate the 80's cast and Dean Winters played one of my favorite characters on Oz. Who exactly says this is good? Is there a trailer for this? I'm lazy enough that I might not search for it.

    not a great one, but a pretty entertaining 80's movie, the 80's was hands down the best decade for kid's movies

    by Ogmios_the_Eloquent

    i won't bother with it. even for free, i don't feel like i wanna add this title to my collection. it would just diminish its overall value. (wow, i feel so arrogant right now..)

    WHY ARE YOU PUBLISHING ANYTHING FROM THIS FUCKING HACK? all he does is hawk movies that no one with a brain gives a fuck about, like boondock saints 2. it seems fairly certain that he has a financial interest in the terrible movies he advertises here. so again, i ask WHY ARE YOU PUBLISHING THIS MALARKY? thank you.
