Mitch Taylor is one of the youngest students ever accepted to a university known for its programs for geniuses. He partners up with his roommate, science club legend Chris Knight, on a project to develop a high-powered laser. Together with their hyperkinetic friends, they employ their intellects in the pursuit of bigger blasts, practical jokes, and a deeper understanding of what real genius means. When they find out that their professor intends to turn their work over to the military for use as a weapon, they decide to get even.
Who ELSE can turn lasers into light shows, aircraft into armchairs, and high-tech into hijinks?

During the laser test, the range controller clears the B-1 to Flight Level Six-Five-Zero, which is 65,000 feet. The service ceiling, or, highest altitude the B-1 can attain, is around 40,000 feet, and has never flown above that altitude. However, 65,000 feet was an erroneous altitude, because the outside shot of the aircraft shows that it is flying at low level, just over the mountains and the desert floor is visible. This would not have been the case at 65,000 feet. See more
Jerry, if you think that by threatening me you can get me to be your slave... Well, that's where you're right. But - and I am only saying this because I care - there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.
I'm not kidding, Chris.
Neither am I, Jerry.
