The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes




Before nerds, geeks and cyberpunks, there was regular-guy Medfield College student Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell), who accidentally turns into a human computer through a shocking lab mishap. As the hype over his instant genius threatens to swell his head, he becomes the center of a winner-take-all tug-of-war between greedy college deans and dangerous gamblers, which lands him in big trouble. The "genius" Dexter then learns a valuable lesson when the same friends he had earlier turned his back on now rush to bail him out...
