Coleman's fun, but how smart can a dilapidated TV movie get?
15 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

It would be awfully hard not to like this one with Gary Coleman as the witty, yet inadaptable under-age college student. He has all the "diff'rent strokes" to give a lasting impression to this, just as long as he's learning how to accept rough challenges that teach a crucial lesson in the world. I can't help not to be impressed by how the movie got started, though. There isn't a single clue as to why he's so smart in the first place, and the rest suddenly turns into inferiority. This piece of evidence results into glitches in the writing, and you may find out that it's all just a predictable coincidence in the making. Those who can remember "Arnold" will have something to look forward to once again. Great fun, but horribly wasted.
