“Real Genius” (1985)

Oh, memories. I don’t know what spurred my husband G. Grod to rent Real Genius from the library, but I wanted to watch it again, as I have fond memories of friends of mine in high school quoting gleefully from it (something about a 6-inch spike…) Directed by Martha Coolidge, who also directed Valley Girl, and starring an impossibly young looking Val Kilmer, it’s a silly 80’s teen flick that gives a little more credit to nerds and smart kids than others of its ilk did. Silly and fun.
