Plot: Two unpopular teenagers, Gary and Wyatt, fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to "create" a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is a gorgeous woman, Lisa, whose purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require Gary and Wyatt to act like men. On their road to becoming accepted, they encounter many hilarious obstacles, which gives the movie an overall sense of silliness. Runtime: 94 mins Release Date: 01 Aug 1985
Essential Viewing for the 80s generation (by grid212)
Weird Science is the product of the prolific '80s' writer/director John Hughes who later went on to create films such as 'Home Alone' . This man single-handedly crafted movies about teenagers for teenagers, without ever becoming patronising or authoritative. Weird Science epitomises the 80s with its fast cars, shoulder pads and big hair. To be honest, Weird Science is synonymous with that decade and reflects most if not all, of its hopes and aspirations computers in every home, robotic servants etc. . Looking back on it now it's incredibly dated, however and more <more>
importantly, the film is still as entertaining today as it was over ten years ago!Anyone who grew up in the 80s and is beginning to reminisce will instantly relate to the exploits of the two lead characters Gary Anthony Michael Hall and Wyatt Ilan Mitchell-Smith , as they use their computer and associated paraphernalia to create a beautiful girlfriend Kelly LeBrock . Although not Hughes' best work, this was reserved in my opinion for the later 'Ferris Beuller's Day Off' which was far more appealing to a wider audience - Weird Science will always be a 'Geeky' 80s classic. The film was so popular it spawned it's own TV series - ten years later!Unless you lived through that decade the film won't touch you in quite the same way. You needed to have been in awe of Tron, to have worn stone washed jeans and to have owned at least two pairs of illuminous [odd] socks, to really appreciate the naivety of the main characters as they place their faith in computers and 'modern' technology.Today to a younger - more clued up audience, Weird Science could get lost amongst so many other 80s flicks with inferior technology and visual special FX to today's CGI standards. However there is something quintessentially 80s, something oh so Duran Duran about Weird Science that separates it from even the best of today's films. It's that central 'Hughes' element with its visual nuances and audible gags that makes this a timeless classic, watchable again and again.If you know what 'ghetto blaster' is definitely watch this film, if you were born after 1984 take everything with a pinch of salt and pay attention - you might learn something.
One of the best comedies I've ever seen. (by loucifersucks)
This is a story of 2 boys who create a super cool woman. The most funny thing is that these boys are total losers. They are oppressed by the society. Lisa - the cool fictional woman - teaches them how to become popular and brings out their best qualities. The good story combined with the excellent jokes and awkward situations creates a very nice setting for a true comedy. The characters are very well "constructed". One of the most important features of this movie is that it teaches people to be brave.I watched this movie as a child and i loved it. My opinion is that this should be a <more>
classic not just a mere comedy of the 80's. I hope all who watch the movie will be very satisfied with it :
One of the best fantasy/sci-fi movies ever. Also a good 80's flick. A lot of very funny jokes and laughs. Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith do a good job playing nerds and are hilarious. Kelly LeBrock as the cyber girl Lisa, is hot. A feel good 80's movies written by the master John Hughes. A must see. They wouldn't be able to make a movies like this these days. I love the 80's.
THE 80's comedy (by chvylvr80)
Weird Science is the best 80's comedy that was ever made. I'm saying it. Ghostbusters, Summer Rental, The Great Outdoors, Strange Brew, Gung Ho, Mr. Mom, all of these movies have their place, but none of them can match Weird Science for laughs or pure....eightiesness. Yes eightiesness is a quality. It's a corny, dated quality but one that is tangible and valued by my fellow eighties loving brethren to this day. Come back with me if you will to a time when Anthony Michael Hall was still fielding calls and Kelly LeBrock was French for sexy.Weird Science has everything that an <more>
eighties comedy needs: A least one hot girl, a few actors who are no longer working or who do anything that will come along, plenty of dashing eighties threads, a corny as hell eighties soundtrack, and Oingo Boingo is as corny and eighties as they get , and plenty of cheap funny jokes. Undoubtedly the best thing about Weird Science is Bill Paxton, who plays Wyatt's older brother Chet. Chet is the worst big brother ever to grace a movie screen and is a role model for all big brothers everywhere, me included. Chet delights in extorting money and valuables from Wyatt in exchange for his silence about Wyatt's activities. The best part in the movie is when Chet gets turned into the toad thing or whatever it is. Man I love that part. The rest of the cast does a good job of being their stock characters. Kelly LeBrock does a good job of being hot. Robert Downey Jr. shows none of the signs of future drug addiction. The film is unremarkable in the fact that it isn't anything groundbreaking or special. It's just a funny movie. And an eighties classic. Bottom Line: If you grew up in the eighties and you never saw Weird Science then you must atone for your crimes by going out and buying it right now. Then send me an email telling me how grateful you are that I put you on the path to rightousness and eighties correctness.
Eighties Encapsulated in Look, Feel, and Tone (by TheAll-SeeingI)
This is a definitive comedy of its era, and it edges just over the line as a legitimate period classic.The premise is as fun and light as it is absurdist: Two lads design the perfect woman, and she comes to life. Kelly LeBrock is scorching and iconic in the resulting female role. The computer geek kids are lights-out and counterpoint each other as two distinctly different brands of socially awkward knuckleheads coming of age. An early career appearance by Bill Paxton with a flattop haircut as older brother Chet "I'd like to butter your muffin" is immensely amusing; a role even <more>
more effectively executed, arguably, than the near-perfectly-played cool kid embodied here by Robert Downey Junior.Let your disbelief be suspended early on and give in wholly to this legendary film.
Something in leather, or rubber, or barbed wire? (by BA_Harrison)
Teenagers Gary and Wyatt Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith are high school losers, never made it with a lady, so they stick bras on their heads, hook up their computer to a Barbie doll, hack into a mainframe for more processing power and create their perfect woman, Lisa Kelly LeBrock , who tells them how to walk this way and talk this way. Before you can say 'teenage nerd wish-fulfilment', the lads are wearing snappy suits, boozing and schmoozing at a blues bar, driving luxury sports cars, and hosting the ultimate house party, before finally finding true love with school <more>
babes Hilly and Deb Judie Aronson More and Suzanne Snyder .Written and directed by John Hughes at the height of his game, Weird Science is pure teenage fantasy, targeted at adolescent boys with raging hormones. As such, the comedy is far from sophisticated, with gags about farts, poop, sex, puking, and underwear. Crass, to be sure, but also very funny if you're a pimply teenager or, like me, an adult whose sense of humour hasn't really matured that much since puberty.Hall and Mitchell-Smith are perfectly cast as luckless dweebs Gary and Wyatt, with Hall, in particular, on fine form, providing the film with some of its funniest moments his bar room tale about unrequited love is hilarious . LeBrock is great to look at but her performance is wooden then again, who's to say that a Real-life Barbie doll wouldn't act that way? . Able support is given from the always great Bill Paxton as Wyatt's obnoxious brother Chet, and Robert Rusler and Robert Downey Jr. as bullies Max and Ian, while cult favourites Vernon Wells and Michael Berryman contribute memorable cameos as mutant bikers, who invade Wyatt's home during the film's surreal and very silly soiree I think that means 'party' .8.5 out of 10, rounded up to 9 for Oingo Boingo's incredibly catchy theme song.
God bless the 80's, and may they live on way after their time! This film captures the 80's geeks, preps, and class rivalry. It was a hard time to fit in, but a fun time, like most teenagers, I had these fantasies that this movie reflects on. I can not believe they got Wes from the Road Warrior to do a part. The scene where the computer animated women talks to Michael Halls parent is hilarious, but sick. The stuff going out of the chimney, the MX missile, and the kitchen turning blue is funny. Bill Paxion or chet is a classic wait and see what happens to him. Anyways rent it live it <more>
Is Weird Science a piece of cinematic cheese? Yes, undeniably. Is it a must-see? Hell yeah! (by Anonymous_Maxine)
Sure, Weird Science is not a spectacular film. It will never be mentioned in a history of film class, and watching it fifteen years after its release shows that time has not been kind to it at all. But as a good, fun comedy, it lives on forever. Just as computers were really beginning to make a big impression on the world, a couple of geeky kids, Gary Anthony Michael Hall and Wyatt Ian Mitchell Smith , decide to create a girlfriend for themselves using Wyatt's 'sophisticated' computer. The way that they actually design her, although ridiculously unrealistic, is hilarious! Weird <more>
Science is what I like to call a "Cheese Classic." It required minimal talent to put it together, but there is an element of endless amusement that can be found in the film that makes it great. From the bras on Wyatt's and Gary's heads during the creation process to countless inexplicably hilarious pieces of dialogue "Wyatt, your kitchen is blue..." , Weird Science is a true comedy classic. It is, however, the film which probably had the most mixed reviews until the Blair Witch Project, so I suggest watching it for yourself. Just keep in mind that it is meant to be laughed at, not learned from!
I rented WEIRD SCIENCE almost three years ago. It was a five day rental, and I watched it like seven times! It was a movie thats fun to watch. You can watch it over and over aguin and it would still be fun. I think all teens and pre-teens should love this movie.
