Overheard at Booth 2: Real Genius (1985)
Anyway, I must have gotten this movie confused with Revenge of the Nerds, because I kept expecting to see Anthony Edwards in it, and also I wondered when Kelly LeBrock was going to come bursting out of somewhere, and that's when I realized I was thinking of Weird Science.
Still, though, I can't believe I still remembered the Val Kilmer lines 35 years later. I guess some things do have an impact on you, such as this exchange:
Val: If there is ever anything I can do for you... or more importantly, TO you, let me know.
Girl: Can you hammer a six inch nail through a board with your penis?
Val: Not right now.
Girl: A girl's gotta have her standards.
The 15 year old boy in me finds that hilarious still. The 50 year old man that I am, well, still finds it freaking hilarious.
