Matthew writes: A touching movie about a female Geek who finds love outside her culture.
Chaffing at the restrictive boundaries of Geek culture, which has not allowed her to find a suitable mate, Tula begins wandering from the CS department computer lab and finds herself in an off-campus coffee shop, where she meets a counter culture psuedointellectual Dork who has dropped out.
Tula’s friends can’t understand her desire to be with a Dork, and try to match her with a series of predictibly geeky Geeks. Love conquers all as Geek and Dork introduce one another to their cultures and teach their friends that Geeks and Dorks can live together in peace. The movie culminates in a Geek wedding held in Hot Air ballons in 15th century Renaissance period costume.
The movie is filled with light touches, like a father who spouts inane puns constantly, a mother whose robotic contraptions save the day, and Siamese twin Aunts who act as foils whenever necessary. Michael Anthony Hall cameos as the Geek priest who performs the ceremony.
