Editorial Reviews

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 his best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, 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 everyone's favorite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science.

    (Review is for the Blu-ray, not the movie which is a classic)

    Please do not make the mistake I did and give Universal money for this insult to this great 80's movie.

    I had assumed they were doing something special with it as they hadn't released it years earlier as most of the studio cash grabs did where they just released their DVD scans at the higher resolution. I was wrong sadly as this has to be from the very old DVD scan they did. Universal put more money into the package than they did the movie as the image is full of digital macroblocking, smearing and other issues. I originally thought I had put in the DVD instead of the Blu-ray until I remembered it didn't come with one..

    Very, very disappointing that Universal wouldn't take the time to do a new scan using current technology and treat this with the respect like a large number of other 80's movies have received. This is sadly just blatant consumer rip-off.

    This DVD tries to suck the buyer in by telling him/her that this DVD contains music from the original score...which it might have, but along with that there comes the added bonus of missing lines that made the movie a classic...for instance the "If there's one thing I know its female stats..." line is completely gone. There are others but I don't have enough room to put them here. Not since the latest Animal House with the missing "Have you seen my rolling papers?" line has a DVD release been so disappointing. While these things may not matter to the majority of you viewers, it will to some of you so you have been warned.

    Another John Hughe's classic. It falls into the same DVD treatment as 'Sixteen Candles' though. It was released poorly on DVD, and is no longer in production. But hold on, there's rumours that this and 'Breakfast Club' and '16 Candles' will get the DVD treatment they deserve in time for their 20th Anniversary! Weird Science, although silly at times, is a must-have 80's classic with some VERY entertaining scenes. Wait for the next DVD release, please don't pay high amounts for the used early DVD copy!

    Bad news for John Hughes fans, those waiting for feature-laden new special editions of his holy trinity - Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science - will undoubtedly be disappointed by the upcoming reissues. Although all feature newly remastered 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers and Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 surround tracks, there are no extras included at all aside from trailers, and Sixteen Candles doesn't even get that. While retail is a low $$$$$$ apiece, after all the wait and endless postponements, such bare-bones reissues are just another thumb-in-the-eye to the consumer. There are different versions of both films from TV and video, there have to be deleted scenes and outtakes, not to mention the fact that commentary from Hughes, or any of the films stars should be easy to get. This is the cd scam all over again - don't wait for a third, or fourth version of the films to come out - make them do it right the first time!!!

    John Hughes and a likable, enthusiastic cast walk perfectly on a tightrope between funny and silly in this film that is still marketed as "silly teenage fantasy-comedy" but, to its credit, is really much more.

    As a former male teenager I can tell you that lots of males spend lots of time thinking about things that:
    1. No one else thinks of and,
    2. Would NEVER come true

    But they think about these things anyway. To some degree the ability to measure how "grown up" a man has become is to discover how much he's given up these immature fantasies. In most men they never go away entirely, although I should say that most of the men I know who are "no fun" are the ones who have completely left behind their silly teenaged self.

    Anthony Michael Hall is featured as Gary and Ilan Mitchell-Smith plays Wyatt. (Bill Paxton is a scream as Wyatt's military-academy mental brother Chet.) Gary and Wyatt are geeky early high-school wimps (often featured in Hughes movies, who dream of hot cars, hot babes, popularity and their own place in the spotlight.

    In the fantasy world of this movie they use a computer with tons of input and connections to create "Lisa", played by Kelly LeBrock. Lisa is not only willing to shower with Gary and Wyatt (in a very asexual and minimally nude scene), but is essentially a "magic genie", able to grant multiple wishes to Gary and Wyatt. They get hot cars, they throw killer parties, other cute teenaged girls get interested in them. When militaristic Chet finds wild goings-on at the house (while Mom and Dad are conveniently away, of course) he initially blows a gasket. Lisa uses her magic powers over and over. When Grandma and Grandpa come over to visit Lisa "freezes" them like statues and they get stowed in a closet.

    Finally, the big boys in hollywood have been decent enough to grace us with a re-release of one of the great teen flick's of the 80's. Starring a young and accomplised Anthony michael Hall (The Breakfast Club) and a host of other 80's stars, the story follows two 15 year old teens who decide to make a virtual woman on their computer. However, things become more then just virtual as the woman they created becomes more then just a dream, and infact, real!
    If your a fan of director John Hughes, then this is a DVD you simply have to own. It'll go nicely with other classics like "The Breakfast Club", "Sixteen Candles", "Pretty In Pink" and many more.
    Oh, one more thing...I'm glad its being re-relesed for 2 reasons. 1) my VHS copy is almost worn out. 2) I wont have to pay for a over priced second hand copy.
