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.

In the beginning, when Catherine is at the table, she reported that protons are smaller than light waves, which are made out of photons. This is incorrect because protons have a mass of 938,000,000 eV/c^2 and photons have a mass of 1*10^-18 eV. Photons are much smaller than protons because they are used to excite particles from one level to another. See more »
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.

A genial romantic comedy, "I.Q" is a flirtatious piece of fluff in which an auto mechanic woos the educated daughter of ol' E=MC2 himself, Albert Einstein. No guffaw inducer, but very pleasant fare given a considerable boost by its cast, most notably Matthau who is very good indeed as Mr. Einstein.
