coverRomantic Comedy Queen Meg Ryan plays a mathematician, but obviously a cute one, wooed by a car mechanic (Tim Robbins), but obviously a cute one. Hilarity ensues when none other than Albert Einstein (Walter Matthau) acts as Cupid, turning the mechanic into a cold fusion propulsion theorist to impress the dame.
The movie has nothing to do with Einstein but perpetuates his “silly scientist guy” image. Einstein had a sense of humor, but this wasn’t it. I didn’t expect a treatise about the Unified Field Theory, but the primate who came up with this concept surely deserves nothing but ridicule.
