''Young Einstein'' is an [[AnachronismStew intentionally inaccurate]] portrayal of UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein as the son of an apple farmer in Tasmania in the early 1900s. In this movie, Einstein splits a beer atom (with a chisel) in order to add bubbles to beer, discovers the theory of relativity and travels to Sydney to patent it. Here he invents the electric guitar and surfing, while romancing an anachronistic Marie Curie. He invents rock and roll and uses it to save the world from being destroyed due to misuse of a nuclear reactor under the watching eye of a typically inaccurate CharlesDarwin. [[RuleOfCool Um... yah...]]

Written, directed and starring Australian musician Yahoo Serious [[note]] born Greg Pead [[/note]], the film was created due to Yahoo's interest in [[AlbertEinstein Albert Einstein's]] life after visiting the Amazon River. The film was made on a very small budget, even going so far as forcing Serious to sell his car to gain funds for it. The film was a hit in its home country of Australia and had modest success in the United States as well, making it the second-most successful Australian film upon its release.
