Synopsis:
What if you had one night to solve the world's problems? For seven geniuses, they have no choice. A terrorist culls together a scientist, a seminary student, a pro baseball player, a professor, a casino owner, a painter, and a pizza delivery guy to attempt to solve the world's problems.

Seven geniuses, with IQs over 200, are plucked from their lives on Christmas Eve to try to solve the world's problems in one night. If they fail, the world will come to an end. The group attempt to solve world hunger, war, cancer, terrorism, rush hour traffic, jerks, and finally the meaning of life. By morning, the group finds redemption in themselves and quite possible the world.

Dove Worldview:
This is the most thought-provoking film I've ever seen. It brings the viewer face to face with death and forces you to decide what is most important in life and what your view of God truly is. We see these things firsthand via the Genius Club, a group of the most intelligent people in the world, people with IQ's over 200 who have been kidnapped by a terrorist who demands answers, or he will release a great detonation which will result in many lost lives.

The film is pretty wholesome, although the movie's theme is a bit mature for those below the age of twelve. Some parents who view it may encourage mature children a few years under twelve to view it, along with their guidance.

This film is intelligently written and acted. World problems such as hunger and war are discussed. A nice quote from one character is if you compare basketball player's salaries to those of cancer research specialists, things seem out of balance. Stephen Baldwin gives a great performance. This intelligently written and acted film is a treasure in today's market and we gladly award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. It doesn't take a genius to see this movie and enjoy it.
