Not that funny. Val Kilmer proved his comedic acting talents in Top Secret!. Watch that instead.

Young Val being silly, which is fun.

not bad for an 80's movie. I would say the jokes work about half the time. Saying there all geniuses so they can invent anything is pretty much a cop out creatively, not that its a serious film by any means.

The definition of good hearted clean fun. The perfect Saturday afternoon movie. Val Kilmer is classic in his role as the ultimate cool nerd - Chris Knight.

Fun, typical '80's genre film.

Definitely the poorer cousin to other "genius kid lets ambition get in the way but saves the day just in time whilst getting the girl" films of the 80s. Great to see a young Val Kilmer in action doing what he actually does best, comedy. There are plenty of montages featuring a great soundtrack - all the trademarks of a nostalgic classic.

Full of wit and great humor. This is what an 80's movie is suppose to be.

Val Kilmer was pretty cool in this and the female love interest was memorably cute, but the whole thing felt a bit trashy overall.

Extremely enjoyable film that succeeds mostly on the charm of its cast and genuine intelligence. There are a few weak moments in the script, and some of the characters are rather too broadly drawn, but these problems do little to diminish the quality of the film. Though the cast is uniformly good, particular praise must go to Val Kilmer for a truly outstanding and memorable performance as the witty, laid-back genius Chris Knight.

Great 80s humor + 80s music = one hell of a film

Funny movie! Definitely three stars!
The fourth one is for nostalgia and Val Kilmer.

Great, enjoyable multi-viewer where the real star is the lost wonderful, colorful, innocent era known as the '80s. Love every silly minute here like a gone but not forgotten high school sweetheart.
