Storyline

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 stuffy professor 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 humble genius, as are his mischievous colleagues, Nathan, Kurt and Boris.

Goofs

When Ed is describing to his fellow mechanics what it was like to fall in love with Catherine, he uses the phrase 'mind meld', which wasn't "invented" until Star Trek came along approximately 10 years later. See more »

Quotes

Ed Walters: ...nuclear configuration, is given given by the expectation value of the nuclear Hamiltonian of the state of n neutrons and n protons. Reaction will occur if the energy of the fused state is lower than the energy of the two separate nuclei.
Ed Walters: Go on. Go on.
Ed Walters: Our task is to see if the dynamics dictated by the interaction Hamiltonian generates a sufficiently rapid reaction to make cold fusion powered engines feasible.

Crazy Credits

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.

I.Q. Is Excellent
22 May 2005 | by ClassicGalSee all my reviews

Maybe I'm being too generous with the rating...but I just love this movie! I've seen it so many times, but every time I see it I fall in love with it all over again. It's just a simple romantic comedy, with nothing huge or monumentous that happens. But I'm a big romantic and this movie *is* romantic. I love Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins, and Walter Mathau is so funny. The scientists make me laugh so much...I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who hasn't seen it. It's such a clean, good movie - and those are so rare now! My 20-year-old brother likes this movie, too, so it's not just a chick-flick. ;-) I recommend it if you need to laugh, or if you're just lonely and need to *watch* a romance, if you yourself can't participate in one. It's a good 'un!
