Australian comic writer-director-actor Yahoo Serious, the stage name for Greg Pead, scored a huge hit Down Under with this 1988 farce about a Tasmanian genius who not only discovers the theory of relativity but also invents the electric guitar, rock and roll, the surfboard, and the method of splitting the beer atom. Full of slapstick scenes, sight gags, and unabashed silliness, this Outback comedy was a disappointment outside Australia, perhaps because too much of its humor is Aussie-based. There's even a subplot involving an imagined romance between Einstein and Marie Curie. As a satirical gonzo-biography of a famous person, Young Einstein is in a class by itself; the concept is outrageous, and the comedy strictly a matter of taste. Michael Betzold, All Movie Guide
