Dennis Quaid stars in Smart People (Mirmax)

Okay, when you name your film Perfect , or Flawless , or Smart People (opening April 11 at Landmark's La Jolla Village Theaters) you are kind of asking for trouble. Or at the very least wiseass headlines like " Perfect Suffers Imperfections," "Flawed Flawless " or "Stupid Smart People Fails to Make the Grade." Such titles set up expectations. But in the case of Smart People, there's at least a hint of irony to the title suggesting that maybe the smug boast is something that's about to be deflated.
