Some movies require you to tune into their particularly weird wavelength less you find yourself confused, or ever worst, critical. Fail to sync up properly and it’s safe to say that you will spend the rest of the running time on the outside looking in, angry and unimpressed. Such is the case with the Real Rushmore Genius rip-off Hairbrained. Like Napoleon Dynamite which exists on its own pseudo-plane of reality, this film finds a “child prodigy” meeting up with a “late bloomer” (a better title might be “adult who should know better” or “obvious plot contrivance”) existing in a space where Henry Spencer hair on acid is the norm, middle aged men date far younger coeds, and trivia challenges are on campus king. If you meet it head on, you’ll find it halting but still hilarious. If you try and work some logic into the mix, you’ll miss the mark - and the potential amusement - totally.
