Weird movie

This is a 1980s classic in the sense that it is filled with high school stereotypes, geeky old school computers, and corny jokes. Weird Science (High School Reunion Collection) is fun to watch, but is somewhat lackluster as a movie. While Kelly LeBrock was great, the rest of the actors were only passable, at best. The movie doesn't even try to be realistic and goes way, way over the top (including turning somebody into a piece of turd, mutant motorcycle gangs, nuclear missiles in the living room ...). This movie is just an excuse to be goofy - nothing more, nothing less.

About this movie

Wiki

Yes, that is Bill Paxton as Ilan Mitchell-Smith's militaristic big brother. And that's Robert Downey Jr. as one of the in-crowd jerks who makes nerds Mitchell-Smith and Hall's lives miserable. Fortunately, this is a John Hughes comedy and our smart nerds create the perfect woman, Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), using a computer and voodoo. Lisa is a willing sex toy, has magical powers, and just wants to help the boys get even and meet nice babes. She even cleans up. The fantasy ebullience of Hughes is given full rein here and that's good and bad (mostly good). It's all aimed at a certain kind of hormone-addled, 16-year-old sensibility; but who doesn't have a little bit of that in them?--Keith Simanton
