It probably wasn’t a genius on my part to let my young crew watch this movie, but they enjoyed it all the same. It did have quite a few parts that made me cringe and hope they didn’t really pick up on what was going on. I know I didn’t realize all THAT was in this movie when I was their age.

I like the reviews over on Common Sense Media. I probably should have checked there first instead of scrolling Netflix for something that didn’t sound boring.

The kids are 12, 10, and 9. I know. I know. A little young. Common Sense Media suggests 13. They handled it just fine though. The boys loved the explosions, fire, the hole through everything on campus, and, of course, the popcorn.  They also loved the potty humor. Of course, they did! All 3 of them did, actually. I’m surrounded by potty humor nearly every day movie or no movie.

As for me, I still really enjoy Real Genius. It cracks me up even more now looking at all that 80’s!
