Movie Review by F A B
February 2nd, 2007

Ehhhh...it's ok.

This film marks Val Kilmer's visible star potential on the sliverscreen as a wunderkid teen genius.Playing the quirky star student at a school for the gifted Kilmer's character takes the new kid under his wing.Hoping to make him into his protege'....the new kid played by Gabriel Jarret(who seemed to fall off the face of the earth after this) is a really uptight nerdy guy who has trouble acclimating to his surroundings.An instant target when he arrives on the high school campus Kilmer's character sees the diamond in the rough an sets out to mold him.Kilmer does a great job playing a fish out of water genius who understands there's more to life than just books and theories.stfollows the tow of them thru a semester of crazyness that ultimately ends up with a house being demolished by popcorn....yea popcorn.

Some people hold this movie in such a high regard and quote it regularly. I remember seeing it awhile back and it never held in my memory so I just dismissed it as being forgettable. I toy with going back and watching it again and then think... eh.
