1.0 out of 5 stars The Chumscrubber Review, 20 July 2008
By 
This review is from: The Chumscrubber [DVD] (DVD)
The Chumscrubber was a huge disappointment... the acting was very obvious: the characters all appeared to have stepped out of a high school drama club (yes it was that bad). The poor troubled adolescent Dean Stiffle (Jamie Bell) tries his best to be like a character such as the great Donnie Darko but comes across as a guy you really hate. He evokes no empathy. I personally couldn't have cared less about him or the rest of the characters.

Icon films sometimes get it right on a minimal budget, but this time it reeked of bad Icon Film: it simply was no good due to a bad plot, poor characters (and bad acting) and perhaps under funding (if we are been generous) . This film tried to be quirky but came across as dire.

The quote on the back of the dvd comes from the Daily Star...

Do I need say any more?

If you want a good film go buy Thumbsucker, Happiness or The Squid and the Whale
