There was thread a while back about best movie opening and I don't think this movie was even mentioned. It has the funniest first 2 and a half minutes of any 80s movie I can remember.

Why I love Weird Science is because Wyatt and Gary actually make me seem pretty cool as kid in comparison:

I've never worn a bra on my head .. well at least not sober.

While I've attempted to make a girlfriend on my computer.. I've so never taken a shower with her.. plus she's from Canada and we only get to see each other twice a year.

I've never had a slurpy poured on my head.. I'm pretty sure that was only a Fresca.

The last time I was at a Blues Club I was accompanied by a beautiful girl .. okay she was my babysitter.. but she could totally pass for Chris Parker.

My big brother only smells like Chet.

See what I mean

There's something wrong with the title of this thread. It should be "Why we don't love Weird Science". I thought we established it was the most hated of all 80's movies?

Weird Science sucks.
Kelly LeBrock is ugly and fat.
John Hughes can't write.

I think this may have just pushed Weird Science back into my top 10 list.....yep...I said it. All good points above, and I so loved Kelly Lebrock when I was a teenager....holy toledo!

haha I love it! this is exactly why I made this thread. SA got me feeling like I needed to rewatch Weird Science. When I did, it was a whole new appreciation for a classic i've always loved. It's back on my top ten also Kev. [Big Grin] I highly suggest watching it again soon all of you!

On a side note. I have a sneaking suspicion that some of the members here have not seen this movie in years and have forgotten how good it is. If you haven't seen this within the past 2 years, give it another viewing and I think you'll be surprised at how much you forgot and how great the movie is.

Favorite parts-
The aforementioned slurpee dump.
Hey-check us out!
Robert Downey Jr does this total pretty boy smile as he bats his eyes at Lisa-so funny!
Telling the black bartender to give them the whole damn bottle......
Lisa telling Gary's parents their plans for the evening.

DEVO...I was razzin' of course, but in all seriousness...why do you love Better Off Dead so much? Or, can anyone else who loves the movie share their thoughts.

I've actually only seen the movie once, which was fairly recently, and it's already forgettable to me. I do recall not really liking it, so likely wouldn't crack my top 20. DEVO's love for the movie has atually inspired me to re-watch...I may have just been tired or distracted?

Muffy...hope it's OK that I'm re-routing your topic a bit...I'm sure people will still express their love for Weird Science!

I love love love Better Off Dead!!

It's dark humor, lovable characters....awesome soundtrack....quotable lines....i'm a big fan of Savage Steve Holland movies all together!

What's funny is I just watched an episode of Cheers where Woody's girlfriend from back home Beth comes to visit and it was BETH! from BOD...hilarious!

I guess I may have to watch again too. But as I remember Better off Dead wasn't worth remembering. I don't really like any movies with Cusack in the lead role either. He is better playing a pathetic geek bit part like in Sixteen Candles. He was great in that.

Weird Science is better IMO but who's to say which is more aesthetically pleasing.
