Smart People 2008 95 R 3.5 out of 5 ducks
Lawrence is an English professor who seems to view most people as stupid; his lectures and grading reflect it, and he can't be bothered to learn students' names. His daughter Vanessa is a carbon copy of him, son James seems only semi-involved (he lives on campus). Lawrence's car is towed, he breaks into the yard to get his briefcase, and falls on the way out, suffering a medical seizure. At hospital, cutie Dr. Janet treats him, and is annoyed he doesn't remember her as a student, either. The seizure means he can't drive (Janet reported it to DMV by law), so Lawrence's moocher adopted brother Chuck moves in, announcing he's the chauffeur. A lot of little things happen, including Lawrence heading the search committee for head of the English department, and he nominates himself. He dates Janet, it goes poorly, but the re-do of the date goes better and the end up in bed. Vanessa and Chuck hang out, smoke dope and get drunk, while Vanessa makes a pass at him; it gets weird. Janet gets pregnant, doesn't tell Lawrence, he gets his book deal finally, withdrawals from the department chair job, and Vanessa finally tells dad she was accepted to Stanford. Lawrence finally apologies to Janet for being himself, she tells him they're having a baby, and he goes home to tell the others. Vanessa accepts it, but proclaims she's not changing diapers. During closing credits, we see them shopping at Costco and a photo montage of the baby with the various family members. Moving film reel
