Format: DVD
Eli (Alex Wolff) is a 13 year old boy genius who doesn't know the meaning of the word "haircut." He goes to Whitman University after being rejected from Harvard. While at Whitman he is befriended by 41 year old Leo (Brendan Fraser) and develops a love interest in a townie high school girl (Julia Garner). Eli has joined the college Mastermind club and competes in intercollegiate intellectual contests, with designs on getting revenge on Harvard.

The film is designed for teens including formulaic cliche writing. There is the college bully and the older girl who wants his baby. At 50 minutes into the film it awkwardly introduces Leo's daughter. Parker Posey fans will be disappointed in her cameo role.

Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb near the end. Male rear nudity. Brief photo nudity. teen grope scene.

Entertaining, thought provoking and feel-good.
The characters are each dealing with their own insecurities and their inner struggle to make the right choice, whilst facing adversities and discovering the value of friendship.

Some good actors. Some moments that don't seem right, some hidden agenda in the movie.

Full of awkward, weird and just plain wrong moments this film is one to avoid. The story is weak, the characters are unrealistic. Maybe it's supposed to be ironically funny, I don't know. But it was a waste of Brendan's comedic talents.
