So a group of college students manage to persuade the town's big businessman, A. J. Arno (Caesar Romero) to donate a computer to their college.
When the problem- student, Dexter Riley...(A very young Kurt Russell) tries to fix the computer, he gets an electric shock and his brain turns to a computer... so now he remembers everything he reads.
Unfortunately... he also remembers information which was in the computer's memory, like the illegal business Arno is involved in.
Heres a cute little clip to demonstrate the problem
Well the result is that Dexter becomes a "Brainiac"
and gets the school into the finals of a TV quiz show.
In the mean time Arno realises that the Kid has all this stuff in his head about his business dealings and so kidnaps Dexter.
There's a chase scene when Dexters' mates rescue him...Good verses Evil and all.... thus thwarting Arno in persuing his criminal rackets.
They get Dexter back to the competition just in time... but will he still have his new found powers and be able to save the day?
Honestly... I can't remember but hey... I do remember Kurt Russell...
Happy MCW Dhaarlings...
