Reviews
Mine: I really liked this. Sure it may be because I am a geek and it is a movie about geeks, but I liked the quirky kind of attiude the it has. Some nice supporting character ( The guy who lives in closet and the hyper active co-ed) add to the mix.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Idealistic whiz-kid is recruited by self-styled genius (Atherton) to join his college think tank--only to find that its members are being exploited, co-opted, and generally burned out. Potentially clever satire turns into just another youth/revenge comedy with caricatures instead of characters. Panavision.
