Top 5 Movie Kids Who Are Smarter Than Adults

my-spi-dave-bautista (720x405)

My Spy opens March 13.  In the preview of this comedy adventure, Dave Bautista gets schooled by Chloe Coleman.  He’s not the first person to be outsmarted by a child on the big screen.  In fact, here’s my list of top 5 movie kids who are smarter than adults.

5. Addie in Paper Moon

Tatum O’Neal plays opposite her own father Ryan O’Neal in this comedy about a nine-year-old who tags along with a con man.  Tatum’s character Addie proves to be a skilled grifter and partner-in-crime to Ryan’s Moze.  She even finds a way to get Madeline Kahn out of the picture when Moze starts to fall for her.  Tatum became the youngest Oscar winner in history for her performance.

4. Matilda

Mara Wilson plays the title role in this classic children’s movie.  Matilda is a little girl who loves books and learning.  She punishes her father for not enrolling her in school by gluing his hat to his head and blowing up his television.  When she discovers she has telekinetic powers, she uses them to overthrow an unjust and abusive principal.

3. Harry, Ron, and Hermione

The heroic trio from the Harry Potter series (played by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson) manages to sneak behind the backs of most adults, go on daring adventures alone without permission or supervision, and stay a step ahead of Voldemort.  Hermione is exceptionally smart.  Like Matilda, she loves books and learning.

2. Kevin McCallister in Home Alone

McCauley Culkin lives every kid’s fantasy in Home Alone:  having the house to himself with no adult supervision.  Unfortunately, he also has to to protect the house from The Wet Bandits (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) with a series of homemade booby traps.  Then he has to do it in again in New York City!  But as he said in Uncle Buck, “I’m a kid.  It’s my job.”

Single best investment

By and far best investment Ive made. I used to drive my husband nuts because Id be a fidgeting mess the last half hour of the movie trying not to miss important parts. Now I just turn this app on and *bam* I can actually focus on the movie the whole time. Even puts alerts to my watch so even better. Also I can guarentee all the 5 star star star star star reviews arent fake as one person accused – its just that so many of us movie-goers had the same problem and this fixed it. Yes, it is paid but jeeze its expensive to keep watching movies and updating an app for every movie. And if you read more about the creator he mentions he has several people contributing – so yeah its paid but omg worth every cent. 10/10

Developers note: the RunPee app is now, and always will be, 100% free. Donations are optional.

1. Wednesday Addams in Addams Family Values

First of all, Wednesday (the excellent Christina Ricci) is the only one who suspects new nanny Debbie of villainous intentions.  Second, she stages a complete overthrow of the summer camp (a place where mediocrity and condescension rule).  Third, she sets the record straight on Thanksgiving.  That’s pretty impressive.

  1. And now Artemis Fowl is out! What’s with the theme of children outsmarting adults, anyway?
