This electrifying, offbeat Disney comedy slyly raises the age old question of friendship and true meaning. Before nerds, geeks and cyberpunks, there was regular-guy Medfield College student Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell), who accidentally turns into a human computer through a shocking lab mishap. As the hype over his instant genius threatens to swell his head, he becomes the center of a winner-take-all tug-of-war between greedy college deans and dangerous gamblers, which lands him in big trouble. The "genius" Dexter then learns a valuable lesson when the same friends he had earlier turned his back on now rush to bail him out. This delightful Disney romp is guaranteed to entertain your entire family with hours of riotous laughter - for every generation.
