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

Product Description

audio in italianogary e wyatt, due sedicenni che non riescono, per la loro timidezza e goffaggine, ad ingranare con le ragazze, hanno la peregrina idea di inventarsene una. c'e' il "computer" in cui wyatt e' maestro e, durante un "week-end" che vede lontani i genitori di gary, ecco che una splendida fanciulla irrompe in carne ed ossa tra tuoni e saette nella bella villa del ragazzo. i due amici, fino allora sfiduciati ed esitanti, cominciano a prendere coraggio. la fantastica loro creatura organizza una festa colossale, a cui partecipano in folla compagni di scuola e sconosciuti vari, la quale festa fa presto a trasformarsi in una autentica bolgia. lrrompe perfino in scena una banda di violenti motociclisti in stile "punk", che provocano una vera rovina; ma uno dei due amici ne affronta a muso duro l'arrogante capo e riesce a mettere in fuga gli intrusi. questo episodio desta l'interesse di due compagne di scuola di gary e wyatt, sui quali la donna del "computer" - lisa - veglia con affetto: tanto da trasformare temporaneamente in un repellente, gigantesco rospo il fratello maggiore di wyatt, un giovanotto presuntuoso e scocciatore che da sempre tiene in soggezione il suo familiare. finita la baldoria, lisa fa tornare ogni cosa magicamente al suo posto, rientrano a casa i genitori di gary e i sedicenni, dopo la loro straordinaria esperienza, cominciano a filare il perfetto amore con le loro due compagne di scuola, mentre la fata evocata e costruita dal "computer" sparisce nel nulla.

5.0 out of 5 stars True 80s classic 20 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Yep, this sort-of Frankenstein remake is an always funny movie, and absolutely sums up the 80s teen-flick genre. It's very, very silly, but the performances are so snappy, the dialogue so wilfully glib, and the storyline so alluringly nonsensical, you just can't help laughing along. It must be something about this particular film, because back in the 80s, like the previous reviewer, I and a friend memorised the entire film without even trying and would often quote whole scenes to the amazement and delight of all and sundry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Blu-ray. No Extras. 20 Nov 2013
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love this film and, despite a terrible review for the US release on, I decided to buy this UK blu-ray. I'm really pleased that I did.

So, what do you need to know? Well, if you want to know what the film is about then read the countless reviews you will find elsewhere on the internet. Personally, I love John Hughes' films and Weird Science has always been one of my favourites. Just remember: It's not cool to hit someone with your Rex Harrison hat!

The good: I think the picture looks brilliant. There is softness on occasion and a little blurring; but overall, when compared to my DVD, this release looks amazing. BUT, here's something you should know...I also thought 16 Candles, Ferris Bueller and Breakfast Club looked good too. Weird Science probably looks the best of the lot.

The bad: The sound. While there IS an upgrade (to a DTS 2.0) it's still not a 5.1. There's some excellent music in this film (not to mention some very funny sound gags) and I would have liked it cranked up. Also, there are no extas. Not a single thing. But, given the review stating the the US extras a bit of a waste of space, I don't think it's worth worrying about.

So, if you have the DVD and are not a fussy techno-nerd who likes to examine every pixel for saturation levels then I think you'll be very happy with the blu-ray. I watched it on a plasma TV. No fancy projector etc and it looked great. Fingers crossed for a release of Some Kind of Wonderful and The Great Outdoors!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Check out the shower scene! 13 July 2010
By bernie VINE VOICE
Here we have a movie that teaches us that anything is possible if we work at it hard enough and with a little luck. This was my first Kelly LeBrock movie and I can tell you that you do not have to be any certain age to appreciate her.

Lots of lessons are learned here by many people from different walks in life. Most people focus in on the scene where Lisa is confronting Gary's parents, [By the way commercial television really hacks this up and sometimes removes parts] others like the run in with Chet Donnelly (Bill Paxton). However I will always carry with me the shower scene as the one I could personally relate to (especially the shot where the camera pulled back to reveal the occupants attire).

You can compare this to movies like "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (1986) and "Sixteen Candles" (1984); however those films have a more realistic chance of happening. This film is pure fantasy (or some sort of fantasy?)

See Kelly LeBrock again in "Wrongfully Accused" (1998) as Lauren Goodhue.

5.0 out of 5 stars A seminal film in any 80's teenagers life! 24 July 2000
Format:VHS Tape
From the very first scene in the gym through to the inevitable house party climax director John Hughes packs this film full of wit and insight into teenage life that he perfected so well in the 1980's. This is arguably his finest moment as he charts a weekend in the life of two high school geeks who create the gorgeous Kelly Le Brock on their computer. The star of the show is undoubtedly Gary, played to a tee by Anthony Michael Hall who had built well on his performance in The Breakfast Club. The fifteen or so years that have passed since this film was released have not been kind to either the fashion nor the music however this is ultimately part of why this film is so fantastic. So if you are in need of some 80's kitsch then look no further than this video, for when the eighties revival takes place it will surely be at the forefront!
