Weirdest movie I have ever watched, but I like it. This is the wackiest film ever, but still pretty decent and hilarious. I loved Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith's chemistry. Kelly LeBrock was hot, fine, and sexy in this film. That was her in her prime.
It was also really nice to see a young 20-year-old Robert Downey Jr. as a teenager and he STILL sounded the same as he does nowadays. His voice hasn't changed. He played a sleazy high school teenage bully named Ian. His role isn't big nor little, it's a medium-sized role. I also liked seeing a young Bill Paxton playing a big bully brother to Ilan Mitchell-Smith's character, Wyatt.
This is John Hughes' most underrated film. Weird Science is so wacky, illogical, awkward, and over-the-top, but so funny. One of the most underrated teen comedies ever made. This movie isn't nearly as predictable as its premise, it has really quite a number of unpredictable and shocking things in it that will genuinely surprise you. Plenty of things that happened in this movie unexpectedly shocked me.
I will go over the flaws of this movie. The acting is not that good. Nobody really gives a good or at least a consistently good performance except Kelly LeBrock. A lot of the acting is over-the-top and hammy. The worst actors in this movie were easily all the actors who played the bikers (I won't go into spoiler territory) and Bill Paxton, but mostly the ones playing the bikers.
Bill Paxton gave a really over-the-top performance as Wyatt's bully brother, Chet. He really overacted in a typical cheesy 80s B-movie fashion. Robert Downey Jr.'s performance was mediocre and Robert Rusler's performance as the other sleazy high school teenage bully (who was best friends with Ian) named Max was mediocre as well. Anthony Michael Hall's performance as Gary (Wyatt's best friend) was good, but not consistently good cause he overacted at times, especially when his character was drunk and did noticeable ham-fisted acting. Ilan Mitchell-Smith's performance as Wyatt was good, but just like his main co-star (Anthony Michael Hall), his performance was not consistently good and was a little too hammy at times.
Another flaw is that this movie lacks a lot of logic. Another flaw is the dated special effects. The special effects in Weird Science are very dated. But overall this movie is decent, fun, and hilarious. Weird Science is so much better than that terrible feminist Disney Channel original movie rip-off, How to Build a Better Boy.
A surprisingly unpredictable, shocking, and great dark comedy full of many shocking twists and turns! The cast is great and their chemistry is amazing, especially Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams' chemistry. The script is surprisingly cleverly written and has a lot of amusing jokes, some funny jokes, and a ton of pop culture references. Heck, there is even a great Hulk reference in this film in one scene. Now, I did not find this movie to be hilarious, I just found it funny, but I still had a fun time watching Game Night. The actor who played the awkward next-door neighbor who is a divorcee that happens to be a cop stole the show. He was surprisingly a lot more relevant to the plot than expected. The group of friends who have a game night together unexpectedly have a kidnapping part of the game that was arranged by Max's brother Brooks, but later, things start to go awry and becomes all too real. The great thing about it is that when you are watching this movie for the first time, it keeps you constantly guessing whether the kidnapping part of the game night (where Brooks gets kidnapped) happening is actually a real kidnapping or just part of the game. There is an amusing subplot where Kevin's wife Michelle reveals she was seeing another man after their one time breakup. She told him that she dated and slept with Denzel Washington. Kevin's reaction is good and funny because he does not get jealous and does not believe Michelle was with Denzel Washington. He even asks her if that man she met told her he was Denzel Washington, but she told him that he didn't say who he was, but she assumed it was him because she called him "Denzel Washington" and he didn't say whether or not he was really him. So Michelle shows Kevin a pic of the guy who looks somewhat like Denzel Washington and Kevin sees the pic and assures her that it was not him. Danny Huston (who played Major Colonel William Stryker in X-Men Origins: Wolverine) makes a cameo in this film as a fight announcer in a mansion where a fight club was happening. The funny thing is that after the first fight between two men ends, he pages the next guy to fight by yelling out "Logan". Does that name ring a bell to anyone? I can't be the only one who thinks can't be a coincidence, right?
HOW THE HELL DOES THIS STUPID, HORRIBLE MOVIE HAVE A 69% AUDIENCE SCORE??? Audience reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes are beyond stupid!!! People who like these movies shouldn't be reviewing movies at all! This was one of the top ten worst films of 2007. Nothing in this movie is funny. One of the worst comedies ever. Completely overrated, idiotic, awkward, and painfully unfunny film. There are plenty of better movies out there that have lower audience scores than garbage movies like this. How the hell do films like Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, Stuart Little, Stuart Little 2, The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, Rugrats Go Wild, The Wild Thornberrys Movie, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, The Punisher (1989), The Punisher (2004), Punisher: War Zone, Hulk, Planet Hulk, Ophelia, The Falling, Murder on the Orient Express (2017), The Sandman (2017), Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ad Astra, and Uncut Gems all have lower audience scores than this god-awful movie?! Anyone who likes this movie is retarded and will laugh at almost anything.
The stupid, wacky, awkward ending completely ruined it!
How the hell does this terrible, forgettable, slow, boring, pretentious, sappy, cheesy, historically inaccurate war/romance movie have a 66% audience score? Pearl Harbor is one of the worst, most forgettable, and most boring movies I have ever watched. Ben Affleck's acting is bad and his fake southern accent is laughably bad. Josh Hartnett's acting sucks too. Kate Beckinsale's performance was forgettable.
I don't even remember Jennifer Garner's role in this movie. The love triangle story involving Ben Affleck, Kate Beckinsale, and Josh Hartnett's characters was awkward, cringe-worthy, and unnecessary. The romance was unrealistic. This American airman named Rafe (Ben Affleck) falls in love with a U.S. military nurse named Evelyn (Kate Beckinsale) and she falls in love with him too. Their romance was rushed and frantic.
He steals a USAF plane to go flying in the sky with her to have a beautiful, romantic time with her. How did he even get passed the Air Force guards to steal it? They only spend like one date night together and when he has to go to war, he goes and she tells him that she'll wait for him. But then she runs into Rafe's best friend who is also an American airman named Danny (Josh Hartnett) whom she showed zero interest in prior to Rafe's alleged death and they fall in love with each other while Rafe is away. So Danny and Evelyn spend some romantic quality time together.
Rafe soon returns and finds out that his best friend was in a romantic relationship with his woman which causes fury and tension between them. It's later revealed that Danny impregnated Evelyn. At the beginning of the movie, they show the two best friends as kids flying a crop duster which did not even exist at the time. The dialogue in this movie is laughably corny. None of the characters are interesting and all of the characters lack personality.
There are a lot of inaccuracies to the real tragic Pearl Harbor event. There is a scene where Japanese planes are firing at targeted civilians and at a hospital. They only targeted and killed U.S. Navy seals in Hawaii in the actual event. There is a scene in the first half of the movie where the main character (Ben Affleck's character) is taking an eye exam to join the U.S. Air Force, he then gets caught using a strip of paper as a cheat sheet and says that he sees just fine but mixes up the letters. If that's true, then how did he read the cheat sheet correctly if he has poor eyesight?
There is a scene where a U.S. Navy seal is drowning in the water and he yells "I can't swim!" How the hell did he get into the Navy if he doesn't know how to swim? The only good things about this movie are the special effects and a few action scenes. This movie is a complete waste of time! Pearl Harbor is a terrible, forgettable, excruciatingly boring and painfully long film with atrocious pacing, two-dimensional characters, a convoluted and pretentious story, an awkward love triangle, subpar acting, bad dialogue, a lot of plot holes, and countless historical inaccuracies. Michael Bay is a horrible and annoyingly overrated film director! He once again wastes great actors (though, to be honest, I think Kate Beckinsale is an overrated and overhyped actress and I am not sure if Josh Hartnett is even a good actor cause I have not seen him in anything else) in a crappy movie of his! I cannot believe so many people like this stupid movie!
