    I'm pretty sure Chet had a genuine mental disorder, but this film plays it like he's just a a typical controlling and mean older brother. That's a crap poster. The two leads were odd, but grew into it. Can someone tell me why this film is racist? That is not rhetorical, I wasn't paying enough attention to notice it, but a lot of reviews on letterboxd have labelled it as such, and I'd kinda like to know what people thought. They also labelled it as sexist, but I don't really need that explaining.

    In addition to being one of the most unabashedly racist and sexist movies of the '80s, the storytelling is nonsensical and painfully unfunny. Nice one, John Hughes.

    Likable juvenile romp in which two teens create the woman of their dreams (played by the stunning Kelly Le Brock) by computer. Naive, silly, but often amusing, helped by engaging performances by Hall and Mitchell-Smith, although supporting cast members Downey Jr. and Paxton are funny as the bullying brother and the sleazy high school bully,respectively. Fun title theme by Oingo Boingo.

    Aggressively offensive in its casual sexism and racism. The dream woman is created with the intelligence of a fifth grader (before a picture of Einstein is added to make her smarter) and is loyal to her owners who discuss trading her for a couple of other girls.

    The moral of the story is that these boys are perfectly fine the way they are and don't need attributes of popularity to score with hot girls. This completely disregards the fact that…

    This is quite possible my favourite John Hughes film. He’s done plenty of brilliant 80’s teen comedies that have all withstood the test of time, but this one really hits the spot. Get out your neon socks, kick back and prepare to enjoy this 80’s saturated comedy adventure. It is pure 80’s indulgence.

    Gary and Wyatt are two rather unpopular teenagers. Failing to be accepted by their peers and the girls at school they attempt to create the perfect woman…

    How i called myself an 80's fan before watching is beyond me! Loved this movie. You really can't make these types of movies anymore. :) I'm excited to watch this movie again. Bill Paxton is great as ever. John Hughes really was the king of the 80's

    What kind of high-powered mutant weed were they smoking in the 80s?

    Seriously, who came up with this idea? I mean I understand why the basic idea is a useable movie idea. Computers are fairly new, nerdy, people don't understand them, etc. We have fancy new computer graphic systems that would be great to put to use. Let's have two outcast teens create a woman with a computer. From scratch. Like just using a computer and nothing else. I'm really…

    In which... two nerds put bras on their heads, make a computer genie who is also a supermodel, and then throw a party... and somehow John Hughes makes it all, mostly, work... if only also date much quickly than some of his other works.

    Some eighties films don't age quite as well as others. John Hughes's The Breakfast Club still resonates with anyone of a certain age who grew up with those characters and is still regarded as THE teen high-water mark for coming-of-age films. It has everything and has lost none of its freshness despite almost thirty years having gone by. Hughes's Weird Science on the other hand isn't as polished or as funny as that Brat Pack classic and although there are…
