Low Standards with John and Matt: Real Genius, Featuring Mike and Jenny Birbiglia


On this week’s episode of Low Standards, John and Matt welcome guests Mike and Jenny Birbiglia to discuss the 1983 Val Kilmer classic Real Genius. Mike and Jenny are superfans of the movie, claiming that it plays a big role in their relationship and that a Real Genius movie poster is hung proudly in their apartment. And can you blame them? This is prime Kilmer we’re talking about.
