The movie runs out of -- excuse me again -- energy in the late going, and the invention of the humor is uneven. But Serious plays the title role with charm and lightness. His wild red hair makes Don King's look like a crewcut.
Considering the pre-opening buildup this film has had, it could turn out to be a bigger bomb than the one Einstein's theory anticipated.
The next Serious movie could well be something special.
It has the charm and advantage of a genuine visual style of its own, both laconic and witty, as well as a likably dopey plot and cast of characters.
Einstein has a handsome period look, even when director of photography Jeff Darling is shooting the musical montages that periodically break up the action.
Serious, a long-haired gangly clown, exhibits a brash and confident sense of humor, endearing personality, and a fondness for sight gags.
Pleasingly cartoonish as physical comedy.
Serious's most distinguishing feature is his unruly hair, which serves as both a reminder of Einstein's own unkempt mane and the endless series of '80s-era stand-up comedians memorable only for their wacky hairdos.
Young Einstein is good-natured and harmless, but it's not very funny.
A rather lame, awkward and amateurish movie, only fitfully funny and made in such a remorselessly low-brow way that it makes Crocodile Dundee look like Citizen Kane.
Not all the gags work -- the cat pie-related ones, for instance -- but the whole is clearly the product of an inimitable and engaging talent.
Serious himself is a pleasantly cartoonish screen presence, but he conveys an underlying, offhand intelligence that hints at an acute familiarity with his subject.
Good photography and a few interesting moments doesn't make Young Einstein a nice picture to watch.
The most fun movie I've watched in years. Kinda like Bill & Ted meet Bill Nighe. I really just wanted to say that cause it sounded cool.
This movie was hyped in 1988 more than "Jason Goes to Manhattan" ever was!
Yahoo Serious was a quirky Australian comic akin to Pee-Wee Hermann and Napoleon Dynamite. I wonder if he inspired Yahoo.com??
Regardless, he appears in a quiet little comedy about his exploits and inventions in the small town in which he lives. I liked the scene where they are planning to bake fluffy kittens into huge pies. There's a bit of a love story too. The music isn't too good. Yahoo's hair is red and punkish, like a modern-day Pippi Longstocking. It's worth checking out, but it didn't have me howling with laughter.
Different to believe, Einstein invented not only relativity, but also the electric guitar and surfing, splitting the atom in his spare time.
