Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas Photos

Movie Info

Bickford Schmeckler (Patrick Fugit) has a lot of "cool ideas" about things like the meaning of life and the unified field theory. He keeps them all in a giant notebook that he guards with his life. So when a sorority girl (Olivia Wilde) somehow manages to steal the book, he scours the campus to find it before all his ideas are lost forever. Meanwhile, everyone who reads the book experiences a radical change in consciousness, blown away by Bickford's amazing revelations about life.

Critic Reviews for Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas

All Critics (6) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • Bickford is an assured first feature for former Beacon Pictures exec Lew, with a winning cast and an infectious spirit.

    March 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • It's the sort of small-scale comedy that invites multiple viewings.

    October 1, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What should be the American Pie of college genius comedies suffers from a lack of imagination and an absence of impudence...

    October 1, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Director Scott Lew is not without his own cool ideas (having Reno 911's Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon play campus cops is genius), but his focus is all over the place

    May 24, 2007
  • The film's early momentum wears off, and we realize the movie's not as amusing or entertaining as it wants to be.

    April 17, 2006 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Packing quite a bit of wit, wisdom, craziness, and creativity into its slick-looking and efficient frame, Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas is a bizarrely charming little diversion.
