Students from Medville College manage to persuade the towns biggest businessman A.J. Arno to donate a computer to their college. When young Dexter gets the shock of his life when installing a replacement computer part, he finds himself suddenly having the equivalent of the Encyclopaedia in his head, and a computer as a brain.
The catch however is that he also has the information that was on the computer to begin with, which includes the details of all the illegal businesses the Arno is involved in across the country. When he unfortunately starts to spew the information on national television, Arno has him picked up and taken out of town. It’s up to his friends, to break him out of his “house arrest” and get him back to the school.
This is a true old classic, the sort of movie that was big in the 60’s and 70’s the only difference is that there isn’t any boobs like the normal style and flow of a similar type of “60/70’s college” movies.
It is a good old fashioned style of comedy, that you don’t see much if at ever these days.
