“..you'll have to see it for yourself to find out who wins the 49th Annual Collegiate Masterminds championship, but take my advice: Don't rush..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..the movie lacks strong enough players to fill in subtext to Mr. Kent's formulaic setups, and the story flounders once Ms. Posey is out of the picture..”
by Miriam Bale [New York Times]
“..HairBrained avoids becomes a slobs-versus-snobs comedy, the requisite jock bully is a minor character at best..”
