Real Genius

When whiz kid teen prodigy Mitch Taylor arrives at Pacific Tech, he quickly finds his life turned upside down when paired with the school’s mischievous top brain. But when they discover their professor is using their high IQ for unscrupulous means, they’ll have to turn high tech into hijinks to enact their revenge. Martha Coolidge’s laser sharp college comedy is a hilarious campus classic packed with pitch-perfect performances, particularly Val Kilmer as the ultimate prankster.
