"...An amusing comedy..."
An unscrupulous college professor, Hathaway (William Atherton), recruits several highly intelligent students for an advanced science project without telling them that it will be used by the military as a powerful weapon. The newest recruit, Mitch (Gabe Jarrett), and the star senior whiz kid, Chris Knight (Val Kilmer), join forces to finish the project, but when the kids learn that they are being used, they decide to exact revenge--and hell hath no fury like a bunch of geniuses scorned.
