The Society of Actuaries has issued a press release that takes issue with the portrayal of actuaries in the film “About Schmidt”: “‘While highly humorous, the perception of actuaries — based on the character portrayed by Jack Nicholson in the film — is incorrect,’ said Deborah Bowen, spokesperson for the SOA. ‘To be more to the point (literally), the perception that actuaries are math-obsessed is 94.00632% incorrect, the perception that actuaries are socially disconnected is 98.34343% incorrect, and – most shockingly of all – the perception that actuaries tend to favor bad comb-overs is 99.67893% erroneous.'” (Courtesy of Pat Everheart.)
