And you thought your unpaid internship was bad… Two college geniuses, straightlaced Mitch (Jarrett) and inveterate weirdo Chris (Kilmer), decide to get even when they discover that their professor has been using their research to develop a weapon for the CIA. Coolidge proves her comedic directing chops with this off-the-wall romp—a merging of classic Hollywood screwball dialogue and 80s teen tropes.
