"smart people" is a movie for smart poeple. most of the humor alot of stupid people wouldnt get at all. I did find the movie somewhat enjoyable, but it was just too slow at some parts. the acting was good and ot was definately a "quirky" type movie, but i have seen indie movies like this that were, in my opnion, much better. This movie is ok for kids 14+ the f-word is used
