    I wonder if Anthony Michael Hall regrets being so racist in this movie?

    Still fun, although not as much so as it was in the '80s.

    Great teen science project that has joyous results for the boys.

    "So, what would you little maniacs like to do first?"

    Without a doubt John Hughes' strangest movie. It's the biggest genre hodge podge and I love it. Every one is so funny - Anthony Michael Hall in the blues bar! Kelly LeBrock is so beautiful it's hard to stare directly at her. Forget those other chicks - they had zero character development. The boys should have stayed with Lisa.

    Another interesting thing about this 80s movie in particular is that…

    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…
