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.

I'm not sure why this film had such bad reviews. It has some dry humour and a few buff jokes, but in all I enjoyed it. A gentle teaser. Would recommend if you want a chilled out Sunday film. Good sounds track too!

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.

Really bad plotline. The characters have 0 development. It doesn't even explain why they're friends. Generally the plot goes from one place to the next with zero explanation and nothing makes much sense.
For example, the older guy meets up with this french woman and they talk as if they've known each other for months. How did they meet? Why? What's going on? Which campus are they on?
Parts of it are good, but the bad more than makes up for it.

In summary: boring and has a very sketchy plotline.
