Trivia

This movie was going to be called ERASMUS WITH FRECKLES, after the book on which it was based. But Brigitte Bardot only agreed to appear on the condition that her name did not appear in the credits or any of the promotional materials. The only way the producers could capitalize on Americans' fascination with Bardot was by changing the title to alert the audience that she was in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When asking Erasmus and the computer to divide 17,590,038,552,578 by 680, Erasmus says it can't be done evenly. He says that it can ONLY be divided by 8,191 and 2,147,483,647. When these two numbers are multiplied together, their product is 17,790,038,552,577. They fail to mention it is divisible by 2. See more »

Quotes

Professor Robert Leaf: I don't care how smart they are or how many degrees they've got or how that nuclear gadget of theirs works on the drawing board. An accident is still an accident and sooner or later they're gonna blow us all to hell-and-gone-outta-here. It's only a question of time before one of those fellas shows up some morning with a hangover and pulls the wrong switch or puts too much uranium in the plutonium and WHAM! And don't think I didn't tell 'em so either.

Slight comedy
18 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

In the 1960's this might have passed for wholesome family entertainment. Getting Fabian for a throw-away role was probably a good casting coup, and for comic relief you have Ed Wynn and Billy Mumy's 'Rain Man' routines. He is an IBM in sneakers, from which most of the plot develops. He secretly writes a love letter to Bardot every night and one day he gets a response in the form of an invitation to visit her in France. Billy and dad Jimmy Stewart go to Paris and have a meeting with Miss Bardot. She gives the little boy an autograph, a kiss and a puppy.

Inoffensive little comedy that might give you a laugh or two. I like movies that reference real movie stars in their title, like "Being John Malkovich" and "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar" so this makes the hat trick for me.
