Eli (Alex Wolff) is a 13 year old boy genius who doesn't know the meaning of the word "haircut." He goes to Whitman University after being rejected from Harvard. While at Whitman he is befriended by 41 year old Leo (Brendan Fraser) and develops a love interest in a townie high school girl (Julia Garner). Eli has joined the college Mastermind club and competes in intercollegiate intellectual contests, with designs on getting revenge on Harvard.

The film is designed for teens including formulaic cliche writing. There is the college bully and the older girl who wants his baby. At 50 minutes into the film it awkwardly introduces Leo's daughter. Parker Posey fans will be disappointed in her cameo role.

Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb near the end. Male rear nudity. Brief photo nudity. teen grope scene.

It's hard to imagine how anyone conceives of a movie idea, and goes about producing it without a clue that it is totally awful.

It had so much promise--goofy kid genius character, Brendan Fraser, college setting...and then it just rolled away, like a dropped quarter under the vending machine. It had its moments, but on the whole, this story just fell apart after about 30 minutes. I believe Brendan Fraser is really underrated as an actor, but I couldn't buy his character. It seemed like the writing was at fault. It's not the worst thing I've seen, but it could have easily been much more.

When I first rented this movie I was a little skeptical because I don't normally watch these types of comedies but i actually found it hilarious so i give it 4 stars ! worth watching.

I slept through some of the movie so my sister says I can't feel strongly enough to rate Hair Brained 1 star. The truth is that I think the producers owe me some money for the time I will never get back. I could have spent this time watching a mediocre episode of JJ Abram's Believe. I would not rate this 4 to 5 stars unless someone was paying me to do so.... which makes me very suspicious.
