Movie Review: Smart People
Last night, I watched another BAD movie, 'Smart People'.
Lawrence Wetherhold is miserable and misanthropic: he's a widower, a pompous professor at Carnegie Mellon, an indifferent father to a college student and a high-school senior, and the reluctant brother of a ne'er-do-well who's come to town. A seizure and a fall send Lawrence to the emergency room where the physician, a former student of his, ends up going on a date with him. His daughter, Vanessa, lonely and friendless, who's been bonding with his brother, tries to sabotage dad and the doctor's relationship, but Lawrence is good at that without help. Is there any way these smart people can get a life? Can happiness be pursued beneath layers of irony? (IMDB)
Ugh. So boring & Depressing!! You will notice the brother is from Sideways. He was pretty good but everyone else in this movie was annoying & sad to watch. Do not recommend!
