Weird Science (2-Aug-1985)

Director: John Hughes

Writer: John Hughes

Music by: Ira Newborn

Producer: Joel Silver

Keywords: Comedy

After watching Frankenstein, two 15-year-old boys get the bright idea to connect their PC, a doll, and a mainframe government computer computer; one lightning bolt later (which came from...?) they have an intelligent, artificial woman with breasts made-to-order for 15-year-old boys. Their fabrication, Lisa, instills the boys' confidence and forces them to socialize. John Hughes' ultimate high school nerd fantasy was clearly quickly thrown together.
