Smart People 2008

description written by member Zara:

An unexpected romance with a charming former student (Sarah Jessica Parker) and a surprise visit from his wild adopted brother (Thomas Haden Church) conspire to turn the life of surly widowed professor Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid) upside down. But after nursing his bitterness for so many years, is the self-absorbed academic ready for change? Ellen Page and Ashton Holmes co-star in this witty dramedy from director Noam Murro.

Dennis Quaid was a perfect pick for a burnt out, pompous professor, who was self-absorbed to the point of nausea. What Sarah Jessica Parker saw in him was completely beyond me. The...

Smart People Movie Review by Christopher Thomas (1/2/2009)

Without rehashing the brilliant rewies already done here of this movie, I felt compelled to add my two cents.
Let me start by saying, I have a PhD and I got that PhD from Pittsburgh, so I understand clearly the material and setting from which the movie speaks.

Smart People Movie Review by Zara (9/15/2008)

I don't think I could pinpoint what exactly about this movie that I disliked so much, I can just tell you that even at only an hour and a half, it bored the f*ck out of me.

This is not a comedy. It is not a black comedy. It is not an indie comedy. It is not funny. At some point along in its promotional tour, the people...

Smart People Movie Review by Jarrod (4/16/2008)

'Smart People' is likely to be remembered as Ellen Page's first film after the phenomenal success of Juno, and she steals this movie as assuredly as she did that one, even though the central performance is from Dennis Quaid, and it is one of his best in a long time, where he channels Michael Douglas from Wonder Boys in his...
