Film genre combining quirky and comedy. Slightly derogatory. A sub-par film that is intended to be quirky and funny, a la Wes Anderson, John Waters, or Tim Burton, but falls short of its goal. Too cute by half, perhaps. Not to be confused with a dark comedy, which by comparison is fully-realized.

Counter-example: Heathers is not a quirkedy, because it reaches its intended goal of being weird and funny.
Counter-example 2: Most of Tim Burton's lesser works.
