Being Smart Isn't Cool

This movie teaches kids that it is not cool to be smart or be a scientist. While the smart brother saves the day in the end, the constant degrading comments about being a nerd is what will stick with kids. This movie teaches kids that being a scientist is boring and means you're boring. They made comments toward Gary (the smart brother) that being smart meant he had no social life in high school and it was unbelievable that he was able to score a hot wife. In other words, being smart isn't cool. The comments "turn your brain off" and "thinking means doing nothing" made me livid. Science and smarts is what saves the day in the end, but does science and smarts get any glory? Almost none! This movie teaches kids that being smart and being a scientist isn't cool, which is a message that shouldn't be sent to our kids.

Enjoyable for all ages. Parents, this is a great movie for little kids, but you'll also enjoy a lot the humor as well. Very touching story.

Nothing too special about the this movie. The only chuckles from the audience came during a few sight gag moments. The dialogue lacked any significant wit or charm. This is a rental.

Huge waste of money. Not funny, clever, nor original. I read books on my iPhone while my kids sat there staring in bored silence.

Has an all star cast and is very entertaining for all ages. I found myself laughing more than my nieces and nephews. I'm going to see it again with my kids and have no problem doing so.
