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.

An extremely hilarious 80's movie. I try to talk like Val Kilmer does in this movie, he's so hilarious!

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

It can't receive less than 5 stars for that epic pop corn scene. The 80's at it's best and one of my all time favorites.

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.

Fairly typical 80s teen geek movie. Possibly includes a few too many montages throughout.

Real Genius is an enjoyable film. It is about teenage geniuses deal with their abilities while developing a laser. Val Kilmer and Gabriel Jarret give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Martha Coolidge did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture is a must see. Real Genius is a must see.

Geek love. Sure it lacks some sense, but has amusing randomness to compensate.
