There’s a movie coming out soon, and it’s got a decent cast and lovely trailers and in general it seems like the sort of thing I might be interested in, in a broad sweeping general sense. Probably not something we’d go out of our way to see in the theater, but we rent $1 DVDs fairly often.

But I just can’t get past the fact that as far as I can tell, it is a story of the dramatic struggle of the man who invented windshield wipers. And it’s called Flash Genius, or something like that. Now, call me crazy, but windshield wipers aren’t exactly blockbuster movie material in my book and, furthermore, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that something to clear the rain off a windshield would be a nice thing. I have no idea what in the world might warrant the “Flash” in the title.

Every time I see one of the commercials, I start laughing. Not as hard as I did for the T-Rex in the Meet the Robinsons trailer, but still.

Windshield wipers.
