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.

Obama must hate this movie

This is a great movie to take your kids to and yet adults get to enjoy it on a whole different level. Great fun for the kids and lots of "conspiracy theory" and TV show history for the parents. I took my 9 year old daughter and her best friend to watch it, and they loved it. If you get my Obama reference, give me a thumbs up.

It wasn't bad, a few chuckles but not one laugh. Save it for 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.
