Weird Science is a 1985 American teen comedy movie written and directed by John Hughes. The film stars Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, and Kelly LeBrock. The film follows two high school nerds, Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly, who create a computer simulation of the perfect woman. They program all of the qualities they desire into their creation, including intelligence, humor, and attractiveness. After a freak electrical storm, their simulation becomes a real-life woman, whom they name Lisa.

The boys are initially skeptical of her abilities but soon realize that Lisa has magical powers beyond everything they originally programmed. She helps Gary and Wyatt live their dream lives, from parties to romance, and teaches them about self-confidence and individuality, leading them on a series of wild adventures.

The boys hope to use Lisa's powers to triumph over the school bullies and to impress the girls they like. But ultimately, they learn that being true to oneself is more valuable than fitting in. After a wild night at a party, Gary and Wyatt have to deal with the consequences, and they begin to realize that they don't have to pretend to be something they're not to be cool.

Overall, Weird Science is a hilarious and entertaining film that combines sci-fi and comedy elements. The movie explores teenage anxieties, self-discovery, and identity through the lens of technology, all while maintaining a lighthearted and fun tone. The chemistry between the main cast members and the witty dialogue make Weird Science a classic comedy that has stood the test of time.

Weird Science is a 1985 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6 and a MetaScore of 46.
