BizarreBy MikeyboyPaines (53 reviews) from Fareham , 12 Nov 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I went to see Chumscrubber without knowing anything about it and found the experience pretty bizarre. It's a weird combination of smalltown American soap opera, teen drama and David Lynchian weirdness. The nearest comparison I can make is Donnie Darko, but without the time travel / rabbit stuff. Fantastic cast, some excellent dialogue and some unpredictable twists make it an interesting and involving film. However, I found the Chumscrubber video game / tv show that the kids watch throughout the film to be a concept shoehorned into the plot with no relevance to the rest of the movie. Otherwise, recommended!

Good Grief!!By plumbob (4 reviews) from Swindon Wilts , 03 May 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA seriously strange film and,even worse, a total waste of time. I wonder why they bother to make this trash
Acting Skills ShadowedBy justcharlie (1 review) from Gosport , 06 Apr 2012Once again, Jamie portrays his character perfectly by using his careless attitude mixed with a roller-coaster of emotion to full fill his role as Dean. But the juxtaposition of the seriousness nature of Chumsrubber and the 'comedic' progression of the characters is unbalanced as well as unrealistic causing an awkwardness throughout the film as it is not a comedy but yet cant be taken seriously as a film. This unfortunately results in the overlooking of Jamie's talented acting which can be seen constantly in all his films.
Good unusual film, quite bazzar scriptBy a customer , 05 Apr 2012Engrossing to watch and get's even stranger as the movie goes on. Kind of felt like American Beauty with drugs.
The ChumscrubberBy a customer , 27 Jan 2012Good and enjoyable film - kind of a combination of American Beauty, Heathers and Edward Scissorhands. The link with the Chumscrubber is a bit odd, Ralph Fiennes is nicely weird!
Wipe the dust from your eyes!By ChefMaria (20 reviews) from London , 08 Aug 2011Eyes wide shut of a middle class suburbia too bothered about the next dinner party and how their neighbours may perceive them when really the bigger picture is whats important!
Its the little things that make a difference that count.
Open your eyes and you shall receive wondrous opportunity.
