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

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 »

Flirtatious piece of fluff

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.
