Weird Science Reviews

Antagony & Ecstasy

Bouncy and charming, anchored by Hall's finest comic turn for the director and LeBrock's disarmingly easygoing turn as a self-satisfied sex goddess.

Brian Orndorf

Throw in an infectious Oingo Boingo title tune, LeBrock in the finest fashions the Reagan-era could offer, and intoxicated tales of large-chested, knee-happy ex-girlfriends, and you have yourself one delectable adolescent comedy.

Empire Magazine

A mildly dirty reworking of love, popularity and wild times, this is John Hughes' scrappiest film to date, but it redeems its tastelessness and stupidity by being fairly funny most of the time.

Richard Luck

Weird Science is an odd mix of risqué shenanigans, puerile pranks and dubious gender politics. It also happens to be very funny.

Feels like something that Hughes slapped together over the course of one weed-filled weekend. It's a novelty flick, but a fairly funny one ... for the most part.

Amusing teen trifle on its own merits.

Guilty pleasure classic. Anthony Michael Hall's character's drunken rambles hold a shining place in the pop culture hall of fame.

This film is so cheesy, but in a fun, entertaining way.

Weird Science combines two great traditions in popular entertainment: Inflamed male teenage fantasies and Frankenstein's monster.

Watching Weird Science again in the harsh light of my 20s was like catching up with an old friend who I had recalled as a raucous party animal, but was now clearly a shaky meth addict with no teeth.

Le Brock plays her character with a sense of style and wit, something the rest of Weird Science largely lacks.

Weird Science veers off into a typical coming-of-age saga without exploring any of the psychological territory it lightly sails over in the early going.

This is ordinary stuff that's aged about as well as Mitchell-Smith's clunky computer.
