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.Written by

During the last scene (when Edward and Catherine are in Stargazer's Field, and Einstein and the conspirators are watching them through the telescope) there is a last-minute shift in perspective. For most of the scene, the telescope-watchers are viewing the couple head on (over the front hood of the car). In the last shot, based on the fact that Catherine is now on the right (and in the passenger seat) the telescope is now viewing them from the rear of the car. 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.

Matthau is wonderful as Albert Einstein in this love story from Fred Schepsi. Car mechanic Robbins falls for quirky Ryan, with the help of the great Einstein and his cronies. It's a fun story idea and all the performances are well paced and delivered.
