Smart People: A Movie Review

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.

I was expecting way too much from the characters in this movie. This is a great cast but the plot just stinks! All I got out of this movie is that smart people are lonely people because they are too pompous to have any type of relationship with those who are different. There are different types of intelligence but if it's academic you're going to be lonely. That's all I got out of this movie. Save your money for something more entertaining! Just wait till this is shown on a cable channel because it isn't even rental worthy.

Rated R For language, brief teen drug and alcohol use, and for some sexuality.
