Weird Science


(out of 5)

Two teenage geeks (, ) grow tired of being the butt of all jokes at school, deciding to take their frustration to their computer screens. They design a ‘perfect woman’ with their machines, who somehow magically comes to life in the form of ‘Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful’ . At first thinking they’ve got the perfect sex slave on their hands, LeBrock turns out to be a thinking machine as well as everything else, taking these boys on a journey towards maturity that they’ll never forget.   developed a cult following for his goofy portrayal of Mitchell-Smith’s insensitive older brother, while the film, the strangest in the John Hughes teen-movie canon, remains a perennial comedy favourite. It’s completely silly stuff, but it’s also fun, clever and memorable.
