In the 1980s, when the movie Real Genius came out, I really wanted to see it (based on a couple of hilarious clips I saw on Siskel and Ebert), but its theatrical engagement in the Southern Tier wasteland town in which I lived lasted less than the film's running time, so I missed the movie entirely. I didn't get to see it until my college years, when it became a "Beers and Movie Night" staple; a lot of its dialogue became part of the vernacular for the little circle of friends I had.
Now, wouldn't you know it -- a sequel is in the works.
I'm conflicted. Part of me wants to see if they can capture that lightning in the bottle again; the other part of me is screaming, "huh-whuh?!". Anyway, we'll see.
(And if you haven't seen Real Genius, for the love of God, what are you waiting for?!)
