Weird Science ★★ 1985 (PG-13)

Hall is appealing, and Hughes can write dialogue for teens with the best of them. However, many of the jokes are in poor taste, and the movie seems to go on forever. Hall and his nerdy cohort Mitchell-Smith use a very special kind of software to create the ideal woman who wreaks zany havoc in their lives from the outset. 94m/C VHS, DVD . Kelly Le Brock, Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Robert Downey Jr., Bill Paxton; D: John Hughes; W: John Hughes; C: Matthew F. Leonetti; M: Ira Newborn.
