I was curious to whether any of you have seen Weird Science? Also, what did you think of it. Is it worth a watch.

I wondered this as I have it on DVD as it came as a double feature along with The Breakfast Club.

I haven't seen this yet, and wondered if it was worth watching? I know it stars Anthony Michael Hall, Kelly LeBrock and Ilan Mitchell-Smith.

weird science is in my oppinion seriously awesome chloe,you definitely need to check it out!

robert downey jr is in it as well.

a very funny movie with a great soundtrack.


chloe have you seen sixteen candles with molly ringwald and anthony michael hall,that's also a lot of fun and worth tracking down if you've never seen it!

For sure Chloe. Chet is a hoot played by Bill Paxson.
Iron man(Robert Downey jr.) is in Weird Science also. I love the "YO! CHECK US OUT" scene.

Even that VHS tape must have been a re-release because it mentions Planes, Trains and Automobiles which was made 2 years later.

Yeah you're right Bernie that's not the original uk rental release that's the budget retail release from a few years later.

Great film weird science,it's a lot of fun!

More fun if you're a guy (Kelly LeBrock) but I think anyone can enjoy it. Vernon Wells from Mad Max 2 and Commando is great in it too as is Robert Russler from Thrashin'.

It's also a great movie if you're into malakas [Big Grin]

+1 to all of the above. Highly recommended! Anthony Michael Hall was fantastic in this. There's even a little Mad Max-ish moment!

The Mad Max scene is priceless!

Can we keep this between us? I don't want to lose my teaching job.

Classic! [Big Grin]

Yes, it does sound like a film I have to check out!

It's also my 16th birthday on Monday, so I'll have to check out Sixteen Candles.

Chloe-
I am really interested to see what you think of Weird Science. I wonder if it has the same appeal for a 16 year in this day and age, versus the 11 year old me who saw it back in 1985. I can't wait to see what you think of it. Also if you haven't seen Sixteen Candles it is a definite must for any 80s fan. Enjoy!

Yeah, always interesting to hear reactions of these classics from our teen years through the eyes of today's youth. I await your response too.
If you do enjoy this, a few more 80's classics I can recommend are:

Teen Wolf
Just One of the Guys
Revenge of the Nerds
Summer School
Lucas
The Heavenly Kid
Like Father, Like Son
Can't Buy Me Love
Heathers
Once Bitten

One of my faves. A must see and I totally agree with the other movies listed. I remember when I was a teen i was obsessed with weird science. I think I first watched it around 1990 I was 10 years old and liked it but LOVED if when I got a little older. I thought it would mainly appeal to teenage boys but maybe I'm wrong
