Weird Science brings the story of two high school losers who have given up on attempts at winning the affections of the opposite sex. Anthony Michael Hall, who plays Gary Wallace, teams up with Ilan Mitchell Smith, who plays Wyatt Donnelly, in efforts to create the perfect woman using only their computer and things lying around the house. Their attempts at creating the perfect woman come true when their creation Lisa, played by Kelly LeBrock, is born from a barbie doll.
With their new-found friend's popularity among anyone she meets, these two buds are in for the ride of their lives. Keeping up with Lisa's demands proves to be a difficult task for the boys, in addition to having to cover up her origins from other kids in their community. Lisa serves to teach the boys lessons about life through her madness, and the family home is her pallet. With an all-star cast of eighties favorites, Weird Science has become one of the most-beloved cult classics to date.
As their worlds seem to fall apart, they are making the best of it as any mid-teen would with a supermodel at their disposal. Against all odds, they will have to pull of making themselves popular among their schoolmates with the party of a lifetime, which turns out to be a utter disaster in terms of what the parents will think of their home when all is said and done. To make matters worse, the older brother is on the prowl in hopes of destroying their plans as well. Will the muscle-bound Chet and the cool kids succeed in keeping Wyatt and Gary from achieving the status they desire, or will Lisa prevail as the ultimate first girlfriend for the boys? Weird Science crosses science fiction with absurd antics for one memorable ride!
Because apparently Hollywood has nothing to do but remake classics (isn’t Los Angeles pretty much chock-full of hopeful, original screenwriters? What gives?)... yet another beloved film will be getting a new and edgy update. This time it’s John Hughes’ 1985 nerd comedy “Weird Science,” which starred Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smoth, and Kelly LeBrock. Robert Downey Jr. and Bill Paxton also had roles. Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures plan to remake the film, using Joel Silver (who worked with Hughes on the original) as producer.
