10 years of Flick Filosopher: not-so-weird science

It’s always fun to mash up reviews of an old movie and its remake. And sometime we find that not much has changed, even when decades separate the two films. From my review of The Nutty Professor, both the 1963 original and 1996 update:

The National Association for the Advancement of Scientists needs to hire itself a better PR team. Somebody needs to be shooting out angry press releases aimed at Hollywood, decrying the way scientists are depicted onscreen, because if they aren’t evil geniuses hell-bent on destroying the world, then they’re invariably hopeless dweebs with no chance of snagging a girl (all scientists are heterosexual males, see) without the help of a little mad science. No wonder all those high-tech jobs are going begging.
