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.
It's yet another in a long series of diversions in an attempt to avoid responsibility.

Did You Know?
When Chris Knight wakes and cuts the CO2 chips for the vending machine, he is wearing "Heckel and Jeckel" slippers. They were 2 magpies that played endless tricks and practical jokes on those that interfered with any of their schemes. See more
When Mitch discovers the secret passage to Laslo's hideout, it is after Laslo went into it and disappeared. As Mitch opened the panel to find it, a car is there to take him to it. Problem is, there's only one track and one car. Also, the amount of time it takes the car to travel to it is so long that even if Laslo sent the car back (which would be the only reason the car would be there after he went down there and a highly unlikely thing if he's technically the only one who knows about it or is the only one who goes there) it wouldn't return so fast as to be there for Mitch to see and get into, considering he found the passage only mere minutes after Laslo went that way.

You know, um, something strange happened to me this morning...
Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?
Why am I the only one who has that dream?
