Zombie Take-Out Episode 293: Trope Tech

Real Genius Scotto and Uncle John discuss an '80s comedy that takes all of the college movie tropes that date back to Animal House, mixes them up with a healthy dose of Revenge of the Nerds, throws in a pinch of military intrigue and then calls it a day. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1985, it's Real Genius. Is it more just a typical college movie or something more? How did they not know that they were making a weapon? Was Don Henley a good choice for the party scene? Was Droz from PCU inspired by Chris Knight? Just how many montages do you really need in one movie?

Scotto's Rating
3.5 brains
Uncle John's Rating
