See the goofs, blunders and plain ole mistakes in the 1985 Comedy movie starring Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Kelly LeBrock, Bill Paxton

We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.

Thanks to Bryan Woolley
In the scene where Gary and Wyatt are sitting on the bench in the mall about to be hit with the red slurpee's, for one brief moment before they are hit with them, you can see that Anthony Michael Hall makes a slight look upwards anticipating what is about to be poured on him and Illan Mitchell-Smith.

When Chet (Bill Paxton) arrives home after a hunting trip, he finds Gary in bed with a girl, Chet whacks them both over the head with the barrel of his rifle and you can clearly see the barrel bend with each hit.

When Gary and Wyatt first make Lisa, there aren't any shoes on the Lisa doll, but when she comes to life she appears wearing high heels.

When Lisa is trying to convince Gary's parents to let him go to the party, there is a glass of beer on the table. The camera goes to a close-up, then back to a wide shot and the glass of beer is gone.

When Lisa shows Wyatt and Gary the grandparents in the pantry, Lisa has her arms folded but as Wyatt and Gary are leaving the kitchen, Lisa now has her hand on the pantry door.

Topless scenes!! In this pg-13 movie:

On the cover of a magazine in the scene if you play frame by frame where they get the magazines.

In Wyatt's bedroom where they make Lisa. On the monitor you see topless images. If you play that scene in frame by frame. Both times - when they made Lisa and before the missile comes through the floor.

The piano scene. When everything gets sucked up the chimney. If you play it again frame by frame. The girl is holding on the window. Her clothes just got sucked off. She is in her bra and panties. Keep going frame by frame you see her assets.

A continuity error. In the bedroom (Wyatts room) scene just before Gary and Wyatt make Lisa, Gary's shirt has a hole in both shoulders. As the scenes continue, the holes randomly disappear then re-appear.

When Lisa is talking to Ian and Max outside the mall if you look to the left over Lisa's shoulder you will see a guy in the background standing there holding a red book in his hand.

Then, when the camera pans back to Ian and Max then back to Lisa he is gone. Then in the next shot when the camera pans back to Lisa he magically reappears.

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake

The following goofs for "Weird Science" are apparently bogus. If you disagree or have additional info, please update us.

In the scene where Anthoney Michael Hall is in the Ferrari taking the girl home, he is being chased by an officer. He has to beat the train over the tracks to get away. Watch closely as after he crosses the tracks and they show the officer mad that he got away, the train has switched directions and is actually going the other way!

The train has not switched directions in the film, it simply has another locomotive attached to the rear of the train. If you look closely, you will see it is a different locomotive than the one pulling the train. The one pulling it is a F40, the one on the rear is an older E unit.
