Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 08/07/1985
"...Hughes has become more sophisticated visually....[The] special effects are plentiful....Hughes' true gift is at capturing the naturalistic rhythms and interaction between the boys with a great ear for dialog..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/02/1985
"...The film's greatest asset is Kelly LeBrock, who is triumphant....[She acts] with great warmth and a sharp sense of herself..."

Product Description:

Teenage geeks Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) are sick of being ignored by girls, abused by cool guys, and forced to spend their weekend nights watching nerdy old sci-fi movies. Left alone for the weekend, they use Wyatt's computer to create Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), a stunningly beautiful woman with a body that stops traffic, a heart of gold, and a genius IQ. The boys embark on an adventure with their creation, going to bars, driving Ferraris, throwing a killer party, and keeping Wyatt's psychotic older brother, Chet (Bill Paxton), in check. But in the end, they learn that wearing cool clothes, hanging out with cool kids, and being popular might not solve all their problems. Written and directed by the king of teen flicks, John Hughes, this film was released after SIXTEEN CANDLES and in the same year as THE BREAKFAST CLUB. Like many of his films, Hughes's WEIRD SCIENCE is set in fictional Shermer, Illinois. A young Robert Downey (sans the "Jr.") appears as Ian, a cool kid who takes pleasure in tormenting Gary and Wyatt.

Plot Synopsis:

When two horny high school computer nerds start practicing pseudo-science in cyberspace, they succeed in creating a beautiful young woman. She's the answer to all their wet dreams. But now that they've got her, they barely know what to do with her.
