Flash of Genius

The true story of the guy who invented intermittent windshield wipers doesn't sound like the most exciting inspiration for a film, and guess what--it isn't. Kearns (played here by Greg Kinnear) seems like a very nice family man. And there is a certain David vs. Goliath quality to his decade-long battle to get his patent back from the nasty auto industry executives who swindled him. But the drama is just just too low-key to support this well-meaning family/courtroom drama. 119 minutes PG-13.
