Editorial Reviews

His high school teacher issues an ultimatum: Turn in a science project or flunk. So Mike Harlan (John Stockwell) scavenges a military base's junk pile for a suitable gizmo. He finds one ... and unwittingly unleashes the awesome power and energy of the unknown. Twisted dimensions. Time warps. A fantastic realm where the past, present, and future collide in a whirling vortex of startling adventure and superlative special effects!

This is one of my favorite 80's movies.

I bought this dvd, and am not able to play it in any of my dvd players besides my laptop due to regional issues.

I really enjoyed the VHS version of this film, which has become a cult classic, so as you would expect I was eagerly awaiting the DVD version of it. Well after purchasing it and receiving it the other day I have to say I was hugely disappointed! The DVD version of the film is lousy!
No attempt was made at all from what I could see to restore the original version for transfer to DVD. In fact it seems from what we viewed that they must have simply copied a not to great film copy over to DVD. The images are fuzzy at times and depth and clarity, which we have come to expect from DVD versions, is simply not there at all. The full screen version even seems to have cut some stuff out of the screen view in some scenes which leaves you guessing at what the actors are looking at.
If you have VHS version of this film, keep it instead and pass on this badly done DVD version! I am very unhappy with it. The only reason that I rated it a 3, instead of a 1, is that the film is not at fault, just the DVD treatment of it.

It's sad that Anchor Bay Entertainment and Touchstone Films chose not to not make any real effort to give this film the DVD treatment it so richly deserves. Two thumbs down on this DVD version!

I liked this movie when it first came out, I like it now
and my kids who are Star Wars , Lord of the Rings fans,
like it too.
Yes it's geeky and very 80's. But that was the audience, it was made for. Just take that into account because your not going to get Jurrassic Park and Fhantom Menace,special effects in this time frame. If they did this movie now with the effects of today it would knock your socks off. It's just fun escapism.

As some others have said, "My Science Project" is pure 80s absurdity - but that doesn't make it a bad thing. With surprisingly high production values and a premise that was every misfit's high school dream (as in saving the day, getting the girl, and winning the respect of your peers), it's hard for an 80s-born nerd such as myself NOT to enjoy it. Since I was a kid I've always had a soft spot for this cheesy flick, and it hasn't changed with time. It may be too campy for much of today's audience, but it's jam-packed with that nostalgic 80s flavor and some really fun moments.

And this movie prooves that. I have this on Laserdisc.. and there was no way my collection could be without it. Definitely a comedy of all sorts- dark, light- romantic. You have to love Fisher Stevens catchphrases- I'd watch the movie just for his one-liners. I wish I could turn my high school into a timewarp- From dinosaurs to future invaders- this flick solves conflicts among all time periods. Ever see a dinosaur invade the gym before? If the team of Zucker and Abrahms ever got ahold of this movie watch out. I love this movie because it always makes me laugh- at the world around me- at scifi- or is it laugh with scifi- another classic 80's flick. And this fantastic exploit of adventure are enough to bring out the child in all of us.

I saw this movie in 1986. I was about fourteen, tagging along with my mother on one of her business trips and bored in the hotel room. Mom rented this for me on the hotel's pay per view, and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon enthralled with it. I identified immediately with the heroine: cute, nerdy chick with plenty of unsuspected spunk. She has to take out her retainer to kiss the hero! And the hero (sigh) my idea of an ideal boyfriend at the time: blue collar sexy with a sensitive streak. Very cool movie!

If I recall correctly, the last science project I did in school involved using a potato, nails, and a couple of pennies to make a kind of battery... okay, so I never threatened to disrupt the space/time continuum with my potato battery, but it was still pretty cool...My Science Project (1985), written and directed by Jonathan Betuel, who had a seemingly very short career in Hollywood writing 1984's The Last Starfighter and then sort of falling off the face of the Earth after his 1995 flop Theodore Rex, starring Whoopi Goldberg (she really has the Midas touch, but instead of turning things into gold, they turn into cr@p). Starring in the film is John Stockwell (Losin' It, Christine), Danielle von Zerneck (La Bamba), and Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit, Super Mario Bros.). Also appearing is Raphael Sbarge (Vision Quest, Carnosaur), Richard Masur (Risky Business), Barry Corbin (Stir Crazy), Ann Wedgeworth (Love and a .45) and Dennis Hopper (Blue Velvet).

The film begins with scenes at a U.S. air force base, circa 1957, and the decision, of the highest authority, to cover up a mysterious UFO that was found crashed nearby. The story then moves to the present (1985 being the present), where we meet Mike Harlan, a high school student and motor head (that's someone who's really good with cars), eagerly awaiting to graduate, but finds himself in the predicament of having to come up with a science project, or else his science teacher, Bob Roberts (Hopper) won't pass him. He scavenges the local junkyard (which used to be the air force base in the 50's), and comes across a strange, glowing thingy (all that was left of the UFO) and decides to try and pass it off as his project.
