Real Genius (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on June 15, 2004

Not as profoundly disappointing as re-watching Bill & Ted but still far from the classic I’d remembered.  Val Kilmer is the typical 80’s comedy version of “cool.”  That is to say, he’s really obnoxious.  Flippant and quippy, with a painfully forced devil-may-care attitude.  The film is stuffed to the gills with stock characters, or at least characters who you feel like you’ve seen a thousand times before.  There are pretty much zero laughs in the whole movie, but it’s entertaining enough to watch once it starts picking up steam.  Rating: 5
