    This is a movie I feel I could have never written for. I've sucked at quite a few science classes I've taken at school (I've said for many years my favorite type of science is "Weird Science").

Only once or twice did it lean a little too much into real drama, but that is nothing but a miniscule nitpick because I LOVED this movie. I particularly adore the script because it's in a way where I feel I…
