Overheard at Booth 2: Real Genius (1985)

Wow, watching Real Genius now is not like how I remember it.  I do remember the great lines, but why do 80s movies seem so grainy now?   I don't remember them being so grainy.   But now they just seem to have no definition, visually ... weird thing.

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.
