Hip Nerds

I think I have a soft spot for any comedy to come out of the 80s. But to be quite honest, Real Genius is more than that, it's a good film in its own right. Val Kilmer heads a pack of really hip nerds to the top of the science echelon of the famed MIT. The comedy is as brilliant as the characters and the ensuing revenge is worth the entire hour and a half of preceding foreplay.
