On Monday night, George himself was on hand for a screening and discussion of the film at the Newseum in the nation's capitol, where the elder and junior Clooneys traded quips before the audience.

When Nick commented that college students can learn from his son's film, George retorted, "I don't care for that."

Not one to be upstaged, the actor's pop joked, "Never cared for this kid! His sister's great."

"I always wanted to be adopted," replied George. "Couldn't find anyone."
