Flick Pick: Real Genius

Real Genius
(TriStar, 1985)

Boutique comedy populated by Val Kilmer in his sophomore role, doing a great job, and a supporting cast that all deliver perfectly throughout the movie. Stupid, fun, and delightful at the same time, this is exactly what you used to expect for your $5 $6 $8 $10  whatever prices have been hijacked to on a Saturday afternoon anytime between Memorial Day and Labor Day: a movie with enough of a budget and a brain behind it, fun with a plot, and entertainment without getting either pissed on or pissed off. A concept Hollywood should dust off once in awhile. As a concept, that'd be Real Genius.
