    John Hughes is truly the uncrowned king of the 80s having produced the decade defining canon of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, and Ferris Bueller"s Day Off. While the others concentrate more on the realistic exploits of the folk of Shermer, Illinois, Weird Science joyfully kisses reality goodbye as teen nerds Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) attempt to achieve popularity through dodgy computer hacking, a touch of voodoo, and an unusual amount of time spent with bras on their heads. Taking their inspiration from Doctor Frankenstein, Gary and Wyatt manage to create an ideal woman in Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), a beauty whose magical powers soon prove to be more than they bargained on. Soon the boys have to contend with more than just fledgling popularity, as a house party gets crashed by evil mutant revellers and the odd thermo nuclear weapon, just as Wyatt"s grandparents decide to visit and older brother Chet undergoes a mutation of his own. This film (but possibly not the fashions featured in it) has truly stood the test of time and is as hilarious now as it was on release, although it would have been nice if the DVD had more in the way of special features.

  It's all in the name of science. Weird Science. 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 best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (the tantalizing Kelly Le Brock). Like a computer generated fairy god mother, 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 every-one's favourite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science.

A John Hughes vehicle which mixes sci-fi, teen fantasies and comedy. A couple of nerdy schoolboys hook a Barbie doll to their computer and scan in magazine pictures of 'perfect' parts of the female anatomy as part of their experiment. The result is the woman of their dreams - Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), a curvaceous and house proud beauty - whose mission it is to help them get the girls. They soon find themselves the most popular boys at school after Lisa manages to loosen them up a bit.
