"You can't run a vacuum cleaner on 12 amps!"

I'm watching Apollo 13 while folding laundry this morning (oy, the laundry). It's one of my favorite "smart people save the day by being smart" movies. The scene where they dump out the box full of parts and say "okay, you guys need to make something that looks like this, now" is just great. :) What's your favorite smart people movie?

I love that too :)

"You have to make this... fit into the hole for this... using nothing but that!"

That scene was the inspiration for the tv show Junkyard Wars.

I love that scene. "You have to connect this to this...using these."

actually... I'm totally going to have to agree with you. Apollo 13 is absoultely one of my favorites... another one is 13 Days...

Haven't seen it, but 13 Days looks good. Onto the list it goes. :)

I love Sneakers. :) I'd seen it too many times there for awhile, but I think it's been long enough that I could watch it again.

Rats. I was going to say that. I guess I still can.

"Sneakers." There. I've said it. I feel better.

I...think I'll go to bed now.

Almost certainly that one, and I love the scene you cited. :D

I'm going to conform and say Apollo 13, too.

Although, for movies about smart little kids, I love Little Man Tate.

And I guess after _Sneakers_ I'd have to say _Real Genius_.

Real Genius.
And that's what I was going to say before seeing the above comment, too. :) I freaking LOVE that movie! When I was a kid my dad and I would make popcorn and watch that movie every time it came on tv and I had such a crush on Chris Knight. Still do, especially now that I've heard the non-edditted for tv dialogue and am old enough to understand the implications. ;)

HAckers is good, even if a bit hoaky. There's a bit of smartass in it and that's always good. :)

And Sneakres does have it's charm. "And give him head whenever he wants."
