Movie Discussion – IQ

The Questions:

Level One (Observation)

What was your favorite scene? Funniest moment?

Who were the background matchmakers (besides Einstein), and how did they help?

Who in this film is a good role model?

Level Two (Abstraction)

How does the deceit of raising a car mechanist to the level of a super-genius (rivaling that of Einstein) work out? Does this kind of thing really work (lying to get into a relationship)? Should it work?

What do you think of the quote from Einstein (no not the real one): “Don’t let your brain interfere with your heart.”? Did this advice go to waste or did it help?

Another quote question; what do you think of this quote: “I would rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.”?

Level Three (Personalization)

Did Catherine make a good choice between Ed and her boorish finance? Did she break her promise to her finance, even though according to the matchmakers he was not perfect for her like Ed was?

Like all films of this nature, they deal with the need for love (or at least a relationship). Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a tool for this desire.  Is this a need of great magnitude or is it blown out of proportion by Hollywood?

How was the destruction of Edwards lab and his marriage justified in the movie, is this right?
