Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Weird Science

Gary and Wyatt (Hall and Mitchell-Smith), two high schoolers, dream of getting girls who are totally out of their reach. They rig up Wyatt's computer to create the perfect woman, Lisa (LeBrock), who is not only statuesque and fun and (mostly) compliant, but can magically upgrade their wardrobe, create cool sports cars, and coach them in handling bullies as well as coed dream girls. Lisa invites everybody in the school to Wyatt's house for a mammoth party while his parents are away, and the play gets trashed not only by partygoers but a frightening motorcycle gang that our nerdy pair have to face down. John Hughes wrote and directed this mostly lame 1985 science-fiction teen comedy between "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller," and it doesn't measure up even to those films.
