THE BRAINIACS.COM

Family entertainment at its findest, that's THE BRAINIACS.COM, a film that is guaranteed to keep mum, dad and the kids amused right from start to finish with its up-to-date take on modern family life, the internet and, yes, even big business!

Eleven-year ols Matt is a lonely boy since his mother died. His older sister Kelly is always doing who knows what on her computer and dad - the head of the struggling Tyler Toy Co., is so occupied with work he doesn't know what's going on - because he is never there. So Matt decided to start a new business, Brainiacs.com, to collect enough investment money from other kids to take over a controlling stake at his father's company! Then he'll order dad to come home, take a holiday, have dinner with his children. What Matt and Kelly don't know is that a real, ruthless, takeover specialist has his eyes on Tyler Toy.

Funnier than anything else THE BRAINIACS.COM is a well acted, feel-good movie which neither talks down nor patronizes children but plays with its own concept.
