Smart People Review

Movie ReviewSmart People: 4 out of 10.

Smart People is a pretentious piece of crap. At 95 minutes, I thought it would never end.

The voice Dennis Quaid puts on to seem pompous is so annoying, I wanted to kick his ass, but not in an engaging, effective way. He was just bugging the shit out of me.

True story: when this movie was coming to theatres, the producers asked me to attend a media preview so I'd blog about it. I looked at the cast, thought it was pretty good, and agreed to attend. In what I now deem as a miracle, the tickets arrived three days after the viewing. This had never happened before, and hasn't happened since. This event, more than any other in the past ten years, has me wondering if there might just be a good Lord above. They say He works in mysterious ways...

I thought the same as you. The cast looked interesting and the movie was a piece of pretentious crap.

It felt like it was trying to be Wonder Boys, but totally missing the mark.

Same stupid Sundance shit that these pretentious snob critics want you to see-trite kitchen sink crud that was already done 70+ years ago.

Myself, I only go to the movies when there's good sci-fi flicks to see; seeing stupid Sundance shit would be wasting money, especially since movies cost a lot (and no, the Bloor Cinema is not a place to go to for me. Sometimes, it is [the Toronto After Dark Festival being a good reason,] but not all the time).
