IQ (1994)

Need further proof that Hollywood is not-so-secretly "dumbing down" its
product?  Consider IQ: a gentle, good-natured comedy that's both
completely watchable and completely absurd.  The cast is not the
problem, nor is the direction.  Walter Matthau, Meg Ryan, and Tim
Robbins are all extra-charming, much more so than this film deserves.

The trouble is the script, which starts sweet but grows increasingly
absurd.  What were screenwriters Andy Breckman and Michael Leeson
thinking?  Director Fred Schepsi's hand is rock-steady, as always, but
even he can't do much with a script that includes President Dwight D.
Eisenhower as a supporting character!

Grade: C+
