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.
Even 14-year-old boys may find it heavy sledding.
| Original Score: 2/5
Weird Science combines two great traditions in popular entertainment: Inflamed male teenage fantasies and Frankenstein's monster.
