“u0026quot;HairBrainedu0026quot; was an adequate movie, it wasnu0026#39;t great, nor was it a waste of time. I must admit that I really had expected a little bit more from it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story is about an odd friendship between a young 13 year old genius who is attending college and a somewhat mature and out of place student. Despite their differences, they are kindred souls in a way.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere werenu0026#39;t any laughs in the movie to be found anywhere, and the movie was frightfully predictable. But what made the movie bearable to watch was the performances put on by Brendan Fraser and Alex Wolff as the two out-of-place individuals in a college environment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI didnu0026#39;t really get the deal with the strange hair on the Eli Pettifog character, it was just too much and it was a nuisance to look at throughout the entire movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;HairBrainedu0026quot; is the type of movie that you are most likely to watch once and not bother to pick up to watch a second time, because it just doesnu0026#39;t have enough contents to support more than a single watching.”
