It's as if Aaron Sorkin wrote a caper flick set in high school, and it's as much clever fun as that sounds.

It's dastardly clever and entirely plausible, although the end does push the boundaries to the limit.

Bad Genius is a refreshing attempt at the heist genre that tackles one of the most mundane and boring tasks on planet Earth and makes a fantastically entertaining film out of it.

...a hugely effective heist film that masquerades as a teen drama.
