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.
When he gets mad, he doesn't get even... he gets creative.

For the "Tanning Invitational", staged by Chris Knight (Val Kilmer
) to introduce his sexually deprived classmates to the student body of the Wanda Trossler School of Beauty, the production unit moved to the Veterans Administration Hospital in Sepulveda. Producer Brian Grazer
explained: "We needed an auditorium in which we could rig a swimming pool. And the theatre at the V.A. Hospital had an orchestra pit which was perfect for that purpose". Fresh from two weeks in cold storage, the production crew now proceeded to flood the orchestra pit and create a tropic atoll on the stage above it. Included in the effort were several hundred cubic yards of sand, an oasis of palm trees and lush foliage, a pump-operated waterfall, two small water slides, and a giant aquatic slalom fashioned from the emergency chute of a 747 jetliner.
