Storyline

Edward Walters, an auto mechanic, falls for the intelligent and beautiful Catherine Boyd. It is love at first sight. There is however a problem, she's engaged to jerk James Moreland. Fortunately, Catherine's uncle likes Ed, and with his friends they scheme to make Catherine fall for Ed. The comedy in this movie stems from the fact that Catherine's uncle is none other than Albert Einstein, who's portrayed as a fun loving genius, as are his mischievous colleagues, Nathan, Kurt and Boris.

Trivia

The line "Dago the front?" that Frankie says is a custom car term. "Dago" is from dago dropped axles made in San Diego, California. It's where the front end of the car is lower than the rear. See more »

Goofs

During the last scene (when Edward and Catherine are in Stargazer's Field, and Einstein and the conspirators are watching them through the telescope) there is a last-minute shift in perspective. For most of the scene, the telescope-watchers are viewing the couple head on (over the front hood of the car). In the last shot, based on the fact that Catherine is now on the right (and in the passenger seat) the telescope is now viewing them from the rear of the car. See more »

Crazy Credits

Several characters' names are given incorrectly in the credits; Stephen Fry's character is spelled "James Morland" without the E, Lou Jacobi's character Kurt Gödel is spelled with no umlaut over the O, and Tony Shalhoub's character is titled "Bob Watters," not Bob Rosetti as given throughout the film.

Silly but fun
12 May 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Silly as silly can be, and yet funny and heartwarming at the same time. Meg Ryan was at her peak in this frothy throwback to the golden slapstick days of Hollywood. The "seven dwarves" concept (actually four elderly university professors, one of whom just happens to be Albert Einstein) works just as well here as it did in the two old Hollywood movies this film liberally lifts from. You know the films I mean: a gang moll moves in with a bunch of bachelor professors and falls in love with one of them while the others do everything they can to advance the romance. The first version starred Gary Cooper, if I am not mistaken, and the second, a musical remake, starred Danny Kaye. The climax of I.Q. features some hilarous pratfalls by Ryan and Tim Robbins(later copied in a Minnie Driver comedy), and is not to be missed.
