Weird Science Reviews
Written and directed by John Hughes, the man who cornered the market on teen comedy-dramas in the 1980s. He directed and wrote classics such as The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles and wrote Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful.
This is not in the same league as any of those, not even close. Silly, largely unfunny and quite juvenile. While his best movies were teen-orientated they still had great sensitivity, drama and gravitas, and a reasonably clever sense of humour. This does not. It's pretty much the worst kind of teen movie - random plot, bizarre, pointless high jinks, cheesy comedy.

Weird Science starts off bad and cheap and made me regret my decision to even watch it, but after the initial starting trouble, the film provides much fun and humour that I started enjoying it. It's three leads are charismatic and one real reason to see this.
