The Frankenstein legend takes an uproarious twist in this outrageous special effects-laden comedy from the writer-director of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Critically acclaimed filmmaker John Hughes is at it again, giving nerdy computer whiz Ilan Mitchell-Smith and his best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence. With a rock beat supplied by many music superstars including Oingo Boingo, this far-out, sci-fi fable brings everyone's favorite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even 14-year-old boys may find it heavy sledding.
Rotten: Weird Science veers off into a typical coming-of-age saga without exploring any of the psychological territory it lightly sails over in the early going.
Fresh: Weird Science combines two great traditions in popular entertainment: Inflamed male teenage fantasies and Frankenstein's monster.
Fresh: A mildly dirty reworking of love, popularity and wild times, this is John Hughes' scrappiest film to date, but it redeems its tastelessness and stupidity by being fairly funny most of the time.
way cool-er then it looks
seriously. i saw it in my 'film studies' class, because it's supposedly an adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstien. naturally i expected some lame movie, but i was blown away. i love this movie, and i'm begging my mom to buy this, and i type...well when i finish typing. XD

If you grew up in the 80's this is probably one of your favorite movies and certainly "a classic" of our time! You will love it. Anthony Michael Hall is awesome in this....just like all his others.
