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.

"First viewing - Mar. 29th I wish I'd seen Real Genius when I was a teenager, as I suspect I would've loved it then. Watching it now, it's fine. There are some really funny moments, but some of the jokes fell flat for me. And there's only one female character that exists beyond being an object of desire, which bugged me. I'd also say it's fairly obvious where the plot is going, but they do enough to keep it entertaining along the way. I'm glad I finally watched it, though I probably wouldn't sit"
