Smart People (2008) (C)
"It's genuinely witty and smart." Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal.
From the producer of Sideways. Get to know a loveable yet dysfunctional family everyone can relate to in this lighthearted comedy People calls "smart and enjoyable." When Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid) - a widowed and self-absorbed professor - falls for his attractive former student (Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker), his all-too-predictable life suddenly turns sunny-side up. That is, until his freeloading brother (Thomas Haden Church) and his sharp-tongued overachieving daughter (Juno's Ellen Page) speak up, making "chaos" the word of the day. -- (C) Miramax Films, 2008, USA.
