- Synopsis / Plot
- In a small town an average Joe named George Malley (John Travolta), becomes a different man when he is struck by a bright streak of light on his 37th birthday. George is suddenly a genius, suddenly able to play chess, speak a new language, and read numerous books in a day, amongst other abilities. George is also endowed with telekinetic powers, able to move objects with his mind. Although George's sweet personality remains the same throughout all this, his newfound abilities breed jealousy and insecurity amongst some of his ne'er-do-well buddies. Furthermore, it appears that George's immense intelligence could actually be harming him physically -- and might even shorten his life.
