Today I was rumaging threw my movie collection and came across Real Genius and thought it would be the next perfect movie to review. Real genius is a saterical comedy staring Val Kilmer.Another movie I cought on HBO one saturday morning that quickly became one of my favorites.Real Genius is about a 16 year old kid named Mitch (Gabe Jarret) which the only other movie I saw him in was Apollo 13. Mitch gets accepted to one of the best colleges in the country and is recruted to creat a super lazer with the help of his dorm roomate one of the top brains and all around goofballs Chris (Val Kilmer) though they have no idea what it will be used for.While this is going on Mitch sees a man whos been living in their closet named Lazlo (Jonathan Gries who also played Napoleon Dynamites meat throwing uncle) Lazlo tells them that they might have just made a lazer that could be used for the military and they set up a plan to stop it.Does their plan work? youll just have to see the movie to find out
With a great cast and great 80's music from the likes of Tears for Fears,Bryan Adams and Don Henley this is definatly a movie to check out atleast once although you wont wanna see it just once but I may just be saying that since I consider this my favorite movie.
Since I really see nothing wrong with this movie i'll rate it five lazer beams out of five
