Has been done to death, but there's something endearingly goofy about throwing Einstein, of all people, into the mix that breathes new life into the formula.November 28, 2003 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Nov 07, 2012Cute. Nice sets and costumes.Bathsheba M Super Reviewer
Sep 10, 2009"I.Q." pits Tim Robbins and Meg Ryan in a fun and witty romantic comedy that is actually pretty good. Catherine (Meg Ryan) is already engaged to a scientist that is smart just like she is. She shows up at Ed's (Tim Robbins) mechanic shop after the car she's riding in has a problem. Ed falls in love with her instantly, but there's one problem, Catherine loves with her brain, not her heart, so she wouldn't ever give a normal everyday guy like Ed a chance. However, there is hope for Ed because Catherine is the niece of Albert Einstein (Walter Matthau) and Mr. Einstein wants Catherine to go out with Ed instead of the guy that she is engaged to. Soon Albert and his colleagues help Ed get to Catherine by turning him into a seem to be genius even though he's not a genius. "I.Q." is witty and it's a good movie to watch. It's plot is interesting and the acting isn't bad either. My only complaint is that it wasn't as funny as I was expecting it to be. Parts of it are funny such as when Albert Einstein and his colleagues help Ed answer some multiple choice questions, but it could've been funnier since it had Walter Matthau and Tim Robbins as two of its main stars. But it's still a good movie and I do recommend it. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Not a memorable film at all, especially for having the actors it does.Jason O Super Reviewer
Aug 27, 2009Dumb! It's supposed to take place in the 50's but you would never be able to guess that!. I like Meg Ryan but the only remotely fun thing about this romantic comedy is Walter Matthau.Sunil J Super Reviewer
Apr 27, 2009Legendary scientist Albert Einstein (played here by Walter Matthau) takes a break from theoretical physics to try to set up his intellectual niece with a handsome auto mechanic in this romantic comedy. The movie's central conceit is that Einstein's brilliance extends to matters of the heart, allowing him to immediately sense that Ed Walters (Tim Robbins), a bright, lower-class mechanic obsessed with Popular Science Magazine, would be perfect for his niece Catherine (Meg Ryan). Unfortunately, Catherine is already engaged to a stiff Princeton man. In order to defeat Catherine's resistance, Uncle Albert decides to help Ed pretend to be a revolutionary scientist, a charade that inevitably leads to much farcical confusion. Einstein's scientist pals are portrayed as a Greek chorus of Catskills-style kibitzers, featuring such notable perfomers as Lou Jacobi as Kurt Godel and director Gene Saks as Boris Podolsky.Martin D Super Reviewer
