By SCOTT A. MAY In an age of corporate greed run amok, "Flash of Genius" is perfectly timed but imperfectly played, offering only sporadic sparks of dramatic depth and character empathy. Based on a true story, the script was penned by the late Philip Railsback - brother of "Helter Skelter" actor Steve Railsback - adapted from a New Yorker article by John Seabrook. Veteran producer Marc Abraham ("The Commitments,""Children of Men") makes his directing debut with this feature, and it shows....

By AL ALEXANDER MOVIE REVIEW Next time you're driving in a light rain, I want you to think about Robert Kearns as your wipers rhythmically squeak across the windshield. Who's Robert Kearns, you ask?

How significant is his invention? It's not quite up there...

Joseph Regenstein invented the window envelope. Richard Drew invented Scotch Tape. And a man named Robert Kearns invented the intermittent windshield wiper. It's an unheralded bit of technology, but one that makes our lives more pleasant. Before the intermittent windshield wiper, in a light rain we had to turn the wipers on and off, on and off. Although the device itself holds a certain technological geek interest, the story of its invention is not typically the stuff of movies. It's what...

By Michael Machosky "Flash of Genius" is a drama based on Robert Kearns, the guy who invented the intermittent windshield wiper in the 1960s. Sorry, but despite the bold attempt to take on such an inherently undramatic subject -- and much as Greg Kinnear and company try -- this movie is about as exciting as it sounds. Still, underdog stories always have a powerful and obvious appeal. And Kearns (Kinnear) is certainly an underdog. The Detroit- area professor and enthusiastic inventor...
